Guacamole Dip

Appetizer, Cocktail Party, Garlicky Holy Guacamole!, Guacamole Dip, Latin American, Recipes

Summer is coming and there is a great place in NYC that my wife and I like to go and enjoy Guacamole and chips. Guacamole dip is one of those foods that once you make it yourself, you’ll wonder how you ever, ever bought it from a store. It’s super easy, takes about 5 minutes to make, and homemade guacamole tastes better than anything you can buy in a store.

Plus, when you know how to make guacamole, you basically have a thousand guacamole recipes in one. It’s super versatile – it can be chunky or smooth, hot or mild, and made with as much or as little seasoning as you like. You can make it just the way you like it.

And you have complete control over what goes into your guacamole dip. Guacamole is actually a really healthy snack, if you make it yourself. The main ingredient, avocados, are great for you – but some of the store-bought kind aren’t even made with real avocados!

Prep Time:                         10 min
Total Time:                        20 min

Ingredients:

4 ripe Haas avocados
3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice (1 lemon)
8 dashes hot pepper sauce
1/2 cup small-diced red onion (1 small onion)
1 large garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 medium tomato, seeded, and small-diced

Directions:

1. Cut the avocados in 1/2, remove the pits, and scoop the flesh out of their shells into a large bowl.
2. Immediately add the lemon juice, hot pepper sauce, onion, garlic, salt, and pepper and toss well.
3. Using a sharp knife, slice through the avocados in the bowl until they are finely diced.
4. Add the tomatoes. Mix well and taste for salt and pepper.
