Guacamole Dip

Guacamole is an avocado-based dip, famous Mexican dip...Ripe avocados, onions, lime, and salt are common to most recipes. Lime or lemon juice is added for flavor, and to slow the enzyme causing browning.Other common ingredients include minced tomatoes, black pepper, chili pepper, garlic, cumin, and cilantro. Adding coconut milk or regular milk smooths the guacamole texture.Traditional Mexican ingredients include avocados, minced tomatoes and white onions, fresh coriander, lime, garlic, salt and pepper.I prepared this guacamole as vegan coz the recipe i went through for guacamole was made with a teaspoon of cream, which i omitted for this vegan version..This is my entry for Vegan - Mexican by Vaishali of Holy Cow..


2nos Ripen Avocados
1no White onion(chopped )
1tsp Lemon juice
Few tomato pieces
1/2tsp Minced garlic
1tbsp Coriander leaves(chopped)
Pepper
Salt

In a small bowl, mash avocado with a fork or potato masher to make a slightly chunky mixture. Stir in onion, tomato pieces, minced garlic, chopped coriander leaves, lemon juice, pepper powder and salt.


Serve with tortilla chips, we enjoyed with grilled french baguette slices!!!
