The Best and Easy Guacamole Ever

Guacamole is a classic Mexican dip made from avocados, tomatoes, onions, cilantro, and lime juice. It’s easy to make, and you can serve it with chips, vegetables, or even tacos. Guacamole is a delicious and versatile dip perfect for parties, gatherings, or just a snack. The great thing about this guacamole recipe is that it’s simple to make and packed with high-quality ingredients. You need fresh ripe avocados, tomatoes, onion, jalapeno, cilantro, lime juice, salt, and garlic (optional). So delicious, and any avocado lover would love the taste of this.

How did Guacamole originate?

It’s believed that Guacamole dates back to the 1500s when the Aztecs of Mexico created a popular saucy green spread using the same ingredients that we enjoy today. They called it ahuaca-mulli, which means an avocado mixture or avocado sauce.

What benefits of Guacamole?

The health benefits of Guacamole primarily come from avocados. Avocados contain healthy monounsaturated fat, which boosts brain function and health. It is one of the good plant-based fats that can help lower your cholesterol and reduce your risk of heart disease and stroke.

Why do we love Guacamole?

Not to state the obvious, but most people love Guacamole because of avocados’ creamy, buttery flavor. Guacamole is great for dipping or even as a topping for tacos and other delicious Mexican dishes.

Ingredients:

  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 1/2 red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tomato, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 1/2 to 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 jalapeno (deseeded), finely chopped (optional)

Tips:

  • For the best flavor, use ripe avocados.
  • If the avocados are not ripe, you can ripen them in a paper bag with an apple or banana.
  • You can add other ingredients to your Guacamole, such as garlic, jalapeños, or serrano peppers.
  • You can store the Guacamole in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

Instructions:

  1. In a medium bowl, mash the avocados until smooth.
  2. Add the onion, tomato, cilantro, lime juice, jalapeno, salt, and pepper.
  3. Mix well until all ingredients are combined.
  4. Serve with tortilla chips, vegetables, or tacos.

Here are some additional tips for making the best Guacamole:

  • Use ripe avocados. Ripe avocados will be soft to the touch and will have a deep green color.
  • Don’t over-mash the avocados. You want the Guacamole to have a slightly chunky texture.
  • Serve Guacamole immediately or store it in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

Guacamole is a delicious and versatile dip perfect for parties, gatherings, or just a snack. I hope you make this easy Guacamole at your next party. It’s guaranteed to be delicious, and enjoy this recipe for the best Guacamole!
