Avocados are known for their many health benefits and are the main ingredients for this popular Mexican dip. Add a few vegetables and spices, mash them up with Multo® and serve the delicious result as dips or as a flavorful side to be enjoyed with tacos, burritos, fajitas, or any other entrée. This recipe’s simple yet tasty ingredients make it well worth your time and effort. This homemade guacamole is simple to make and is suitable for many special diets.
A key characteristic of guacamole is its finely chopped ingredients, and the first step is to prepare the vegetables and spices that will be mixed with the avocados.
Begin by dicing the ripe tomatoes. Any type of tomato would work in this recipe, but Roma tomatoes are most commonly used when making homemade guacamole. Roma tomatoes have a firm texture and mild flavor, so the pieces will keep their shape and will bring a subtle sweetness to the dish.
Mashing the onion and garlic is an important step of this recipe. Smashing onions and garlic releases their natural enzymes, which allow their natural flavors to be released into the mixture.
This guacamole recipe calls for wholesome ingredients which will result in a dip suitable for vegetarian, vegan, and paleo diets.
Use Multo to now mix all the ingredients together. Add avocados and additional spices into the tomatoes, onions, and garlic, and blend together until your desired smoothness is achieved. That being said, no large chunks of avocado or vegetables should be present when this recipe is complete.
There are a few different items you can include in this recipe to personalize it to your desired tastes. Add jalapeño peppers to the mixture for extra spice, and squeeze fresh lemon juice in place of or for an extra citrus note. This recipe recommends topping the finished guacamole with jalapeño slices, crushed red pepper, or chives.
Guacamole is usually enjoyed with other Mexican food or snacks. It can be used as a topping on tacos and burrito bowls and as a side dip for burritos, fajitas, and enchiladas. And is there a better dip for tortilla chips besides salsa and guacamole?
You can use guacamole in other ways as well. Serve as a spread on toasted bread and top with an egg if you desire a healthy breakfast, or slice fresh vegetables to dip into it for a carb-free snack.
Guacamole can be stored in the fridge for 3-4 days. Place it in a container and seal tightly. When air touches guacamole, the color starts to change. If your guacamole starts to develop brown spots, give it a stir to “freshen it up”.
Avocados come from different areas of the world and their availability in stores may vary. Hass avocados from Mexico and avocados from California are two popular varieties that are available for purchase in most North American stores. Given the proper amount of time to ripen, both of these avocados will develop the creamy, smooth taste commonly associated with avocados.
Buying a perfectly ripe avocado is not always the easiest thing to do. If you need to ripen your avocados quicker than their natural process, there are two easy at-home ways to do this.
The first way is to place the avocados into a brown paper bag with a banana, kiwi, or apple. These fruits naturally release ethylene gas, a plant hormone that speeds up the ripening process. Seal the avocado into the brown bag and wait 1-3 days until the avocado is soft to the tough.
If you need your avocados ripe within the day, you can wrap them in foil and cook at 200℉ / 93 ℃ for about 30 minutes. This will make the avocado soft enough to mash.
This homemade guacamole recipe is quick to make and full of fresh ingredients. It’s the perfect snack or dip to serve alongside a Mexican-inspired meal. Rich in various vitamins and minerals, guacamole does not only taste good but it also provides many health benefits such as lowering cholesterol and promoting overall health.
