Guacamole is a dip made from fresh ripe avocados along with finely chopped onion, tomato, cilantro, lime juice and spices.
This dip is very light and fresh and has an amazing smooth & creamy texture. It is widely used as an accompaniment with various mexican snacks & dishes like tortilla chips, tacos, wraps, burritos and is now gaining popularity as a spread in burgers and sandwiches.
Avocados are prone to quick browning when exposed to the air. Lime juice can be added to guacamole to prevent this. The dip should be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator and consumed within 1-2 days.

History of the Guacamole Dip Recipe:

Guacamole has its roots in ancient Aztec culture. It was first made by the Aztecs during the 16th century using a traditional tool called a molcajete, similar to a mortar and pestle. Later, the Spanish introduced tomatoes and onions to the dish, which is why you can see them in the recipe today.

Tips and Tricks for Guacamole Dip Recipe:

To make guacamole, use only ripe avocados. They should be slightly soft and give in to gentle pressure. To prevent the guacamole from turning brown, add lime juice to the dish. Also, chop the onion and tomato finely as big chunks will overpower the dish. You can add a little sugar to balance out the acidity of the lime juice.

Tips for presenting the dish:

Guacamole can be served in a variety of ways. It is best served at room temperature along with tortilla chips, crackers or vegetable sticks. It can also be used as a sandwich spread or as a topping on burgers. You can also use it as a dip for pretzels or cheese sticks. The best way to present guacamole is in a shallow dish with lime wedges and cilantro leaves as garnish.
