Guacamole


Avocado is this soft and buttery fruit which is green in color. When hold and squeezed gently it should feel soft then it's the perfect ripe avocado. If you buy green one it will ripe in 3-4 days. The flesh of the fruit is prone to go brown in color if not consumed immediately, although that can be delayed by adding lime juice to peeled avocados. Avocados are base for famous Mexican dip called "Guacamole". This recipe is super easy to make, serve it as a appetizer with tortilla chips or along side Quesadilla your guests are sure going to love this tasty dip.

Ingredients
2 ripe Avocado
1 small onion diced finely(preferably red)
1 small ripe tomato chopped finely
1/2 jalapeno chopped(if not handy use two green chili's)
1 1/2 tbs lime juice
Salt and pepper as per taste
Chopped fresh cilantro

Method
Cut avocados in half remove the pit. Dice the flesh of avocado and scoop out the pulp using a spoon into a large Ziploc bag. Add chopped onion, tomato, jalapeno, lime juice, salt and pepper. Zip close the bag and mash it with both your hands. Mash it well and cut one corner of the bag and scoop out guacamole into a serving bowl and throw away the Ziploc bag. This method is clean and not messy and all the flavors blend together perfectly. Serve with Tortilla/Multigrain chips or Quesadilla.
