Guacamole (Easy & Tasty Dip)

The first recipe that comes to my mind when talking about mexican recipes and a favorite to many is the guacamole.Its a very good dip served with tortilla chips/mexican bowl rice made out of ripe avocados.The homemade guacamole is very simple to make and is very relishing too.Avocados have known to have cholesterol lowering properties.And thus its a very healthy dip too.We enjoyed this with tortilla triangles.Do try this creamy delicious dip !!

PS: The new series with Flavors of Cuisines is started off @ My Food Treasures with the theme "Mexican".Link up your entries soon.Also,a word of thanks to all my enthusiastic bloggers who signed up for guest hosting the series,friends.I was overwhelmed with joy to see the guest hosting response,dearies.Thank you all,Hope this will be interesting with the trying & learning the flavors across the world.


Ingredients
avocado 2 pitted & mashed
onion 1/2 medium chopped
tomato 1 fine chopped
garlic clove 1 finely minced
cilantro 3-4 sprigs
jalapeno pepper 1
lime 1
salt & pepper to taste



Method
-Wash the avocado,slit half way.Pitted and scoop out the pulp.Mash it smooth with a fork or spoon.
-Add in all the chopped veggies.Squeeze out the lime and add salt & pepper.
-Keep chilled for a few hours so that the flavors are blended well if you have time or else serve.
-Serve with tortilla chips,tortilla triangles or as topping for mexican rice !!


Servings ~ a small bowl

NOTES
* Avocados tend to brown very fast so prepare and chill immediately.
* If u don't like the strong smell of onion,then use scallions /green onion.
* Remove the  pulp from tomato if you want your guacamole to be creamy.
