Guacamole is the easily recognizable Mexican dip made from avocado that is both delicious and nutritious.
Ingredients
  • 3 Haas avocados, seeded and peeled
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 cup pico de gallo recipe
  • If you don't have the pico de gallo on hand and don't feel like making it (I have no idea why you wouldn't), then add the following ingredients instead:
  • ½ medium red onion, diced
  • 2 tomatoes, skinned, seeded and diced
  • 1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 jalapeno, seeded and chopped
Instructions
  1. Cut avocados in half, remove seeds and scoop the flesh from the skin and into a bowl. Add lime juice and toss to coat. This will keep the avocado from turning brown quickly. Once the avocado is coated remove th excess lime juice and reserve.
  2. Add salt and cumin and mash the avocados lightly with a fork or potato masher. You want the avocado to remain chunky.
  3. Fold in the pico de gallo, or if not using then fold in the other ingredients.
  4. Serve immediately, or refrigerate for up to 4 hours (covered with cling wrap pressed into the guacamole).
  5. Eat with corn chips, slathered in tacos or tortillas, on top of salad, or on your favorite sandwich. Or simply spoon it into your greedy mouth!
