Guacamole is one of my favorite things. I use it as a dip for chips, an accompaniment to a Mexican dinner or as the base for amazing chicken salad. And I have 3 versions I typically make: a Chunky Guacamole with Tomatoes, a Creamy Strawberry Guacamole and also the recipe I’m sharing today – a Traditional Mild Guacamole.
To make each of these recipes you will start with a basic guacamole recipe – which consists of avocados, salt, red onion and some citrus juice. And then just add in a few simple extra ingredients will give you 3 unique guacamole dips.
- 2 ripe avocados
- juice of 1 lime
- 2 tablespoons red onion, finely chopped
- 3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1-2 teaspoons finely minced fresh jalapeño (optional)
- Cut the avocados in half and remove the pit. Carefully spoon the avocado onto a cutting board and slice lengthwise, then dice into about 1/2 inch pieces.
- Gently toss the lime, red onion, cilantro, salt, and jalapeños with the diced avocado.
- Taste and add more salt if necessary.
So there you have it – guacamole three ways! Now it’s your turn… what’s your favorite way to prepare guacamole?
