This easy guacamole recipe is so easy you will have yourself a fantastic side dish ready in minutes. If you have never heard of guacamole before then it is simply a dip made of avocados. You will find a lot of variations on the recipe but typically it has garlic, red onion, lime, tomato and cilantro added to it. However you can find an easy guacamole recipe as bare-bones as just simply lime and avocado.
It is important that you get nice ripe avocados because if they’re not ripe enough you will have a hard time trying mash them up. If you want to check that the avocado is ripe simply gently press the outside and if it dents a little then it is ready. Alternatively you can remove the stem and if it is a dark brown then it is overripe and if it is a light color then it is just right.
One fantastic thing about this dish is that it doesn’t contain any cream cheese. You may have noticed but a lot of the guacamole or avocado dips at the supermarket have a ton of extra ingredients designed to bulk it out whilst reducing the amount avocado they need to use. You can find some dips containing as low as 2% avocado in them whilst still advertised as avocado or guacamole dip.
