Simply a quick recipe for tasty guacamole! Great with tortilla chips or as a topping for Mexican foods!

Guacamole

A fresh, homemade guacamole recipe that doesn’t get any easier! Diced Tomatoes and onions are added to ripe avocados, along with cilantro, jalapeños, minced garlic with lime juice, a dab of sour cream, and a pinch of salt. That’s all it takes for this quick Mexican dip!




How to choose a ripe avocado for Guacamole
Picking the perfect, ready-to-eat avocado can be tough, but it doesn’t have to be!

 The texture of the skin should have a slightly bumpy texture. Ripe avocados are typically a dark, almost black color with hints of green when they're ripe.

If the avocado yields to firm gentle pressure you know it's ripe and ready-to-eat




How to Make Guacamole
  • In a medium bowl, mash together the avocados, lime juice, and salt. Mix in onion, cilantro, tomatoes, and garlic. Stir in jalapeño and sour cream. Cover and refrigerate for 1/2 hour for best flavor, or serve immediately. That's it

        Chunky Avocado Salsa

        This chunky avocado salsa recipe is a great meat-free alternative. It’s sure to please vegetarians and meat lovers alike. This salsa is super easy to make where you just need to dice some avocados, jalapenos, tomatoes, and onions, hit it with some lime juice, throw in some cilantro, and finish things off with a touch of salt.





        How to Make Chunky Avocado Salsa 

        Avocado: Scoop out the avocado, gently work a spoon between the flesh and the skin of the avocado. Following the curve of the avocado with the bowl of the spoon, scoop avocado out of the shell, then cut into chunks.




        Tomatoes: Cut tomato in half and scoop out seeds, then dice.  Getting rid of the pulpy seeds in your tomatoes can seem like a lot of extra work, but it's worth it. ... If you didn't remove the seeds, they will make the salsa extra watery.

        Onions: White or Red onions diced
        Cilantro: Fresh and chopped
        Jalapeños: 2 jalapeños is used for this recipe but you can use 1 for less heat. Seed, scrape membrane from jalapenos, and dice.
        Add garlic powder, lime juice, and salt to taste.


        Combine all ingredients in a bowl and gently toss to together with a fork.
