Holy mole, its time for some guacamole! :) There are a million and one ways to make an avocado dip, and most of them are good. I've found that there are a couple key ingredients that need to be part of the mix for a superb guacamole.
1. Ripe, GREEN avocados. If the avocado isn't ripe enough, it won't mash easily and you won't have a smooth consistency. Ripe avocados are soft to the touch.
2. Garlic or onions (red or green). These ingredients add a spice to the guacamole and make it so tasty.
3. The use of cilantro. If its in there, the dip is going to taste better. Guaranteed!
Serves 1 or 2.
-1 large avocado, peeled and mashed.
-1 green onion, finely chopped (green and white tips)
-2 tablespoons minced cilantro
-juice from 1/2 squeezed lemon
-salt and pepper to taste
-Mix all the ingredients together and serve with tortilla chips!
