How to Make Guacamole


If you are wondering how to make guacamole, this tutorial is perfect for you. Guacamole makes a great dip, and goes well with just about any Mexican dish. At times I will like to eat my guacamole with tortilla chips, but I also frequently put it on tacos and hamburgers. There is nothing complicated about making guacamole, it basically consists of mashing together avocados with various spices. This is the perfect dip to prepare for the Play-offs and the upcoming Super Bowl. Enjoy.

Ingredients:
3 avocados (halved, seeded, and peeled)
1 lime (juiced)
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon ground cumin
½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
½ medium onion (diced)
2 Roma tomatoes (seeded and diced)
1 tablespoon fresh cilantro (chopped)
1 garlic clove (minced)

Cooking Instructions:

Step 1: In a large bowl add the avocados and the lime juice, Mash them together and toss to coat. Add salt, cumin, cayenne pepper and mix well.
Step 2: Fold in onion, tomatoes, cilantro and garlic. Let sit for 1 hour and serve.

    Great idea as usual! Guacamole is one of my favorite things! Your version looks great, but I also like a simple mashed avocado with grated fresh garlic and a dab of lime juice. I sometimes add a teensy bit of minced jalapeno, too. I usually eat guacamole as a condiment for the cooling effect on foods that are already spicy – like enchiladas or burritos – so don’t usually add extra spice to the mix.
