Guacamole And My First Award

          Avocado is a tropical fruit, native to Mexico, it's high in fat content but mostly the good one. When ripe, the fruit has a buttery texture and a bland taste. Usually it is used for making sandwiches, in ice creams and milkshakes too. But in our house, it is mainly used to make this, Guacamole, a spread when we use it on bread, a dip when we use it with tortilla chips. You can buy it in stores, but it tastes best when made fresh at home..
Need To Have
  • Avocado - 1 ripe
  • Red onion - 1 small
  • Tomato - 1 medium
  • Coriander Leaves - chopped 1 handful
  • Lemon - 1/2

          Slice the avocado into halves, remove the seed and scoop the flesh out. Mash it well, mix in salt and lemon juice. Now, add the onion, tomatoes and coriander, mix everything well, check for salt and if needed squeeze more lemon juice. That's it, your guacamole is ready to be had with bread or chips or as a spread on wraps. I used it in a wrap (recipe coming next).

If you are not serving it to small children, you can mix chopped green chillies in it. I usually add chilli pieces separately, depending on who needs it.
For people who are new to avocados, the ripe fruit is dark brown in color, and soft when you press it slightly.
