244 – Avocado Guacamole Recipe / وصفة الأفوكادو
- 1 Hass avocado (ripe)
- 1 lime
- 1/2 tomato (chopped in small pieces)
- 1/4 onion (finely chopped) – or green onions
- 1/4 cup finely chopped cilantro
- Jalapeno pieces (optional)
- Salt and pepper (to taste)
- Corn chips for serving
1- The main ingredient in guacamole is of course avocados! Make sure you get a good avocado, I am using Hass avocados, they have a really good flavor. Also make sure that the avocado is soft (ripe).
2- Cut the avocado in half. Scoop, using a spoon, the avocado meat and place it in a bowl.
3- Using a fork smash the avocado. Depending on the consistency you are looking for, smash the avcado more for a soft guacamole, or less for a chunky guacamole.
4- We need to add an acid element (which is citrus in this recipe) to the avocado so it does not turn brown. I am using lime (but you could use a lemon as well). Roll the lime on the table to make it soft before juicing it. If you like the guacamole to be more citrucy you can add 2 limes instead of 1.
5- Add the lime juice to the avocado and mix.
6- Add the rest of the ingredients: chopped tomato, finely choppe onion (or green onions), and finely chopped cilantro. Mix all the ingredients together.
7- You can aslo add finely chopped jalapenos or any other hot peppers.
Add black pepper and salt (to taste).
8- Serve the guacamole with corn chips (or other types of chips).
