Guacamole is a healthy dip that is easily made and very versatile. It is great for a dip served with chips or vegetables, or as a spread on sandwiches or in a great morning omelet. Although avocados are high in fat, they contain good fat that is important to our health. This recipe is highly customizable to your (and your family’s taste).
2 ripe Hass avocados
2 T. finely chopped onion
1/4 t. salt
1 T. lime juice (more if it will not be eaten immediately)
- Choose 2 ripe avocados.
- Peel avocados by cutting them in half (there will be a large seed in the middle to cut around). Then, twist the halves to separate them. The seed can be removed with a tablespoon. Spoon out avocado meat into a bowl. Mash the avocado with a fork or a potato masher. This will create a creamy, yet chunky starter to the dip. Sprinkle with lime juice (to preserve the color) and stir.
- Add salt and chopped onion to the mashed avocados mixture. These amounts can be altered to fit your taste. At this point you have an easy guacamole dip. This can be customized by adding salsa or chopped tomatoes to taste.
- Serve immediately, or store with plastic wrap on the surface of the guacamole.
