Guacamole is one very good sauce, often used as a dip for chips, crisps, doritos and roasted poultry.

One thing that is not widely known for Guacamole is: The ingredients are very rich on vitamins and natural oils and Guacamole sauce in general is excellent chelating agent for metal and cyanide poisoning.

It will make the immune system stronger and if more garlic and hot chili pepper are used, guacamole will also be good for treating common cold.

The original recipe was meant to be just mashed avocados with sea salt, but at present days it mutated to at least 5 basic recipes.

Some use mashed with fork avocados, others blend them until smooth.

Some use chilli peppers, others use chilli sauce.

Some add coriander, others don't.

Probably there are more recipes, that we don't know.

The one I often make for myself needs the following:

Ingredients

  • 2 avocados (medium), mashed
  • 1 lemon, freshly squeezed
  • 1 red onion (small), chopped to dices
  • 1 tomato (small), chopped to dices
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely choped
  • 1 cayenne pepper, diced
  • salt, just a pinch
  • 1 tsp corriander
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Preparation (5 minutes)

Peel or scoop the avocados and then mash them with a big fork to a pulp.

Cut the onion and tomato into tiny dices and add them over the avocado pulp.

Crush 3-4 cloves of garlic in a garlic press.

Add the lemon/lime juice and the other spices.

Mix well, until smooth.

I prefer it this ways with small vegetable chunks, but you may also use a chopper/blender and make it to a smoothie.

Smoothies are better for smearing over a slice of bread or as a dip for doritos, but the same is valid for the more chunky kind.

The process of making is simple and takes 5 minutes

      It is very good dip for chips (crisps) and doritos. I sometimes make a batch and watch a good movie with a good company ;)

      JamaGenee, Cilantro is a spanish word for Coriander Sativum L.

      In most parts of Europe we use the generic name Coriander, sorry for misunderstanding.

      And I prefer adding garlic for additional spicy taste (as if the onion and the hot pepper are not enough ;) )

      Thank you for reading and comenting.

      I've never had guacamole made with garlic and coriander. Interesting... In the Midwest USA, the standard guac (pronounced "gwok") recipe is two avocados mashed, a little diced tomato, onion and jalapeno pepper, and cilantro and salt.

      As for avocado trees grown from seed, mine never became anything close to a tree, but a cousin in California grew one and would taunt me with tales of how any "cados" he'd picked that day from the tree in his back yard... Otherwise, he was a nice person! ;D

      I am jealous Rasta1 :) ... I have 3 avocado bushes grown from seeds. They never flower, because in Bulgaria we don't have enough sun.

      I still keep them though :D

      (thank you for reading)

      It was cloverfarm :) Already finished with the whole bowl.

      Found some good Doritos (not greasy and without much salt). Started using them instead of bread, so dips and sauces don't survive for too long.
