Guacamole is an essential part of Mexican cuisine. If you go to any Mexican restaurant the first thing they will serve is a big basket of nacho chips with salsa and guacamole. It is preferably made with ripe avocados mashed with onion, tomatoes, lemon juice, garlic, green coriander, and seasoning.

Ingredients

  • 1 Cup cucumber
  • 1 Medium size ripe avocado
  • 2 Garlic pod
  • 1 Green Chili
  • Salt as per taste
  • 1/2 Cup water+1/4 Cup extra if required
  • 1 Medium size lemon squeezed

Instructions

  • First of all gather all the listed ingredients, clean and cut.
  • Take cucumber, garlic pods, green chili in a grinding jar and pulse for a few seconds.
    If the mixture is unable to move, add 1/2 cup of water and pulse again.
  • Adding water helps the mixture move with the motor and get a smooth creamy paste.
    As soon as you see a smooth paste pour it into a bowl. Adjust salt as per taste and add lemon juice.
  • Mix well and serve chilled with nacho chips or with tacos.
  • Cucumber avocado dip or guacamole is ready to enjoy for the party.

Notes

  1. Replace cucumber with zucchini to get a new flavor altogether. (Will post the recipe soon).
  2. This is best when served immediately. Avocado has a tendency to become black in color if kept for some time in open.
  3. Also makes a great dressing for vegetable salads.
