Guacamole is a simple vegan Mexican dip made with avocado pulp.It tastes great with almost every Mexican dish & can also be used as a delicious spread.
For the past few days, I am sharing a lot of Asian food recipes forgetting that I am on a food voyage and need to explore different countries.
So today I will re-route from Asia to Mexico.
Today I am sharing another vegan side dish from Mexico-Guacamole.
Salsa and Guacamole, both are loved in my house. We love having tortilla chips on our movie nights, not only because they taste great but also because there is always some great offer on them at the grocery store near our house.
Having tortilla chips with Salsa and Guacamole every movie night has become more like a ritual in our home now.
What is Guacamole
For those who are not aware, Guacamole is a classic vegan dip from Mexico.
Though there are different ways of making it, the basic recipe remains the same with avocado as the main ingredient.
This creamy and refreshing dish can also be used as a great sandwich spread. You can use it in my avocado and mung bean sprouts sandwich recipe, it tastes great.
How to make Guacamole
Making guacamole is very easy. Just cut the avocado in half, remove the seed, scoop out the pulp, and mash it. Don’t make it too smooth, keep a few small chunks in it.
Finely chop the onion, tomato, cilantro, and jalapeno. Grate garlic cloves. Add everything to the mashed avocado and mix well. Enjoy!
