I enjoy guacamole, however, I hadn't ever made it before. It would be enjoyed at a restaurant with the salsa and chips but I never thought about making it myself. It seemed rather difficult.
Oh how wrong I was. Easy Homemade Guacamole is so easy to make and delicious.
So what inspired me to make it? How about a 17 year old boy who I have known since forever. There was a Big Game Football Party going on at our house hosted by our 17 year old and this friend of his wanted guacamole dip. So, I thought I would try.
What is in guacamole
Guacamole Dip has pretty basic ingredients in it. The ingredients are avocados, tomatoes, onions, salt (very important) and lime juice (also very important). You can make recipe as chunky or smooth as you would like. It is personal preference.
If you want it chunky, I would recommend NOT using a food processor. (<--this one is like mine) However, if you want it smooth, a food processor is the way to go. You can just mix it by hand if you choose for chunky.
Why add the lime juice
Well, besides it adding that fabulous punch or kick of flavor in the recipe, it helps the avocado from turning brown. Which, as you can imagine, would lessen the appeal of the dip. Could you add lemon juice if you are out of lime? Well, if you must and are in a pinch. However, I would stick with the lime juice. I would even daresay to make a quick run to the store to grab it. It really is necessary.
Real lime juice from a lime or from a bottle you ask? Either will work. The lime juice from a lime would be fresher, but I didn't have any limes and had lime juice from a bottle. Worked and tasted great.
Instructions for the guacamole dip
This will be instructions for making the easy homemade guacamole using a food processor.
Scoop two avocados in a food processor or bowl. Add salt and lime juice and pulse until smooth.
Add chopped tomatoes and onions to the bowl of the processor and mix until desired chunkiness is reached.
After everything is mixed, you will want to let the mixture sit in the fridge, covered, for at least an hour or two. That action will let the flavors get to know each other and start to get along.
You can serve with tortilla chips, corn or blue.
Yes, this dip will be the talk of the party. And you know what? It is pretty good for you too.
