Guacamole

 

Ingredients

1. Ripe avocado – 1 medium

2. Red onion – 2 tbsp, finely chopped (You can use spring onion instead for a milder flavor)

    Tomato – 1/2 small, seeded and chopped

    Jalapeno or Serrano chili pepper, seeded and minced – 1/2 tsp,

    Garlic – 1 small clove, minced (optional)

    Pepper powder / cayenne chilly powder – 1 pinch (optional)

    Lemon/lime juice – 1.5 – 2 tsp

    Cilantro – 2 tbsp, finely chopped

    Salt – To taste

Method

Peel and pit the avocado. Scoop its flesh into a bowl. Mash the avocado flesh with a fork. Add the rest of the ingredients. Mix well. Serve with chips or with fajitas, quesadillas, tacos etc.

Tip

To prevent guacamole from browning – 1) Add a little lime juice at the end, just covering the surface. It will keep it fresh and green for a few hours. 2) Put the avocado pit inside the guacamole until serving.
