- 3 ripe avocados
- 1 medium-sized tomato, diced
- 1/2 cup red onion, finely chopped
- 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
- 1-2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 jalapeño pepper, finely chopped (remove seeds for milder taste)
- Juice of 1 lime
- Salt and pepper to taste
Prepare the Avocados:
Cut the avocados in half, remove the pits, and scoop the flesh into a mixing bowl.
Mash the Avocados:
Use a fork or a potato masher to mash the avocados to your desired consistency. Some people prefer a chunky guacamole, while others like it smoother.
Add the Vegetables:
Gently fold in the diced tomato, chopped red onion, minced garlic, and finely chopped jalapeño pepper into the mashed avocados.
Squeeze the juice of one lime into the mixture. Lime not only adds flavor but also helps prevent the avocados from browning. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Mix well.
Stir in the chopped cilantro, distributing it evenly throughout the guacamole. Cilantro adds a fresh and vibrant flavor.
Taste and Adjust:
Taste the guacamole and adjust the seasoning as needed. You can add more lime juice, salt, or pepper according to your preferences.
Transfer the guacamole to a serving bowl. You can garnish it with additional cilantro or a slice of lime for presentation.
Enjoy with Nachos:
Serve the avocado dip alongside your favorite nachos, tortilla chips, or as a topping for tacos. Enjoy the creamy and flavorful guacamole!
Make sure to use ripe avocados for the best texture and flavor.
If you want to add an extra kick, consider adding a pinch of cayenne pepper or hot sauce.
Guacamole is best served fresh, but you can store it in an airtight container with plastic wrap pressed directly onto the surface of the dip to prevent browning if you need to refrigerate it for a short period.
Now you’re ready to enjoy a delicious homemade Avocado Dip with your nachos!
