There is nothing that I like as much as fresh guacamole! And probably nothing I hate as much as "Guacamole Flavored Dip", well I can think of a few things I hate more, but I don't like it at all! I have been making this dip for a long time- I serve it with chips, on burritos, on tacos and carnitas.
A few tips about picking avocados:
If you are going to use them that day, pick avocados that are soft but not squishy.
If you are going to use them later, they need to be semi-hard.
Set them on the counter and use them when they are soft, but not squishy to get the most flavorful avocado!
1/2 yellow onion, finely diced
1 medium tomato, finely diced
1 Tbsp lime juice (this helps keep it from browning)
1 tsp minced garlic
1 Tbsp finely minced cilantro (optional)
salt and pepper to taste
Cut avocados in half and scoop out filling with a spoon.
Remove pits but add one to the guacamole bowl (this helps keep it from browning, if you leave this in here the guacamole will stay good overnight, otherwise it will probably be brown by morning)
Add all other ingredients and mix well.
If your avacados are a little under ripe then you may need to mix it in a food processor.
Taste and add more salt and pepper to taste.
Gauacamole is the best if you let it chill about 1-2 hours before serving, that way the flavors can all mix together.
I will be linking up with some of these parties!
