    About this recipe: The trick to great guacamole is - of course - good avocados. Make sure your avocados are ripe, and the Haas variety is always best. Serve this dip with tortilla crisps or an array of fresh vegetables.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 16 

    • 2 avocados
    • 1/2 lemon, juiced
    • 2 tablespoons chopped onion
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

    Method
    Prep:5min  ›  Ready in:5min 

    1. Cut the avocados into halves. Remove the stones, and scoop out the pulp into a small bowl. Use a fork to mash the avocado. Stir in lemon juice, onion, salt and olive oil. Cover the bowl, and refrigerate for up to 1 hour before serving.

    Note:

    Avocados have loads of protein, beta carotene and vitamin E. They are also high in monounsaturated fat - a 'good' fat! Combined with the olive oil in this dip, which is about 75% monounsaturated fat, it's clear that you'll definitely benefit from a lot of dipping!

    My son and a friend wanted to have Guacamole for a snack, and I had never made it. I read the reviews of others for this recipe, and the version I prepared won rave reviews from the guys. I used fresh lime juice instead of lemon, decreased the olive oil to 1 tsp and added 1 clove minced garlic, 1 tbsp chopped cilantro and 1/4 cup chopped tomato to the rest of the ingredients. It sat for less than 5 minutes as it got eaten too fast! My son says it's the best Guacamole he has ever tasted.  -  20 May 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    This is a good base recipe, but for really good guac, you have to add some fresh cilantro. I would also omit the olive oil, and add a little cumin and a tomato. Or even roasted tomatillos if you have the time. I'd also use lime juice instead of lemon.  -  17 Jul 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
