This fabulous guacamole is simple to make and is sure to be a crowd pleaser served as a dip or on burgers, burritos or tacos.

Ingredients

  • 3 Haas avocados, ripe
  • 1/4 cup diced fresh tomato (seeded)
  • 2 tablespoons diced red onion
  • 1 teaspoon chopped garlic (one clove)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh squeezed lime juice (half a lime)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chipotle chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon fresh cilantro, minced (optional)

Preparation

Slice the avocadoes lengthwise, remove the pits and scoop the green flesh (discard any brown flesh) into a bowl. Use a fork to mash the avocado pulp to a chunky texture. Add the lime juice, garlic, onion, and spices and mix well. Add the tomatoes and cilantro, mix and serve.

Serving Suggestions

Guacamole is a popular snack with crisp tortilla chips and a common ingredient in burritos, tacos and burgers. Try it on top of chili or inside a grilled cheese with some fresh pico de gallo.

Tips & Notes

Avocados are ripe when they gently yield to a firm push or squeeze. Avoid rock hard or soft avocados. If you make the guacamole more than half a day before its going to be used, put a thin layer of prepared salsa or lime juice on top of the mix to prevent it from turning brown.
