Easy Guacamole Dip

Thank you for sharing!

I LOVE Guacamole! In fact, I love avocados just about any old way. But, fresh-made Guacamole Dip just can’t be beat in my book. The problem for me is that I’ve just never found a recipe that I like. So, one evening last week I decided to experiment a little, because I had a couple of avocados that were about to get over-ripe. Hubby and I ended up having homestyle enchiladas, Mexican rice and guacamole for supper. We both ate until we were hurting! So, I’m sharing my guacamole recipe with you.

Ingredients for Easy Guacamole Dip

  1. Ripe Avocados, 2 (medium sized) — To make sure your avocados are just right, grip each firmly and gently squeeze. If there is a little give in the avocado, it is ripe. If there is no give, it is too green. If the skin sort of caves in, it is too ripe.
  2. White Onion, 1 (small) finely chopped
  3. Tomato, 1 (small) cubed
  4. Lemon, 1 (small)
  5. Jalapeno Pepper, 1 finely chopped

Build Your Guacamole Dip

  1. Chop the onion into very small pieces.
  2. Dice the tomato. The pieces should be about 1/4 inch or less.
  3. Wearing gloves to prevent skin irritation, finely chop the jalapeno pepper.
  4. With a sharp knife, cut lengthwise through the skin and meat of the avocado, down to the seed. Continue the cut, until you have cut all the way around the avocado. Grasp the avocado in both hands, with one hand on either side of the cut. Twist your hands in opposite directions, and the two halves of the avocado should separate, exposing the seed. Follow this link to see a YouTube Video that demonstrates the method very well.
  5. Hold one half of the avocado in one hand and scoop out the meat of the avocado with a spoon, placing the avocado meat in a medium-sized mixing bowl.
  6. Using a fork, mash up the avocado and add the juice from half a lemon (about 1 teaspoonful of juice). Stir together.
  7.  Add about 1/4 cup finely chopped onion and all the diced tomato to the avocado-lemon mixture. Stir.
  8. Add jalapeno pepper and salt to taste.

Serve your fresh Guacamole Dip with chips or crackers. My hubby and I eat this dip with tortilla chips. It’s great for a snack or as a side dish. Check back on NerdyMamma soon for the homestyle enchilada and Mexican rice recipes.
