Healthy Guacamole Dip is great for Entertaining friends and guests for barbecues or just hungry for a snack. It''s so yummy, quick and easy, you won't need your cooking kitchen timer for this recipe. All it takes is 15 minutes to prepare and five minutes to make. Hardly any mess to clean up. The only utensils you'll need is a potato masher or fork. (Yay)

Helpful Tips:

  • There are many avocado variety's on the market today - choose whats in season.
  • To check for a unripe avocado, hold it in your hand, squeeze if it feels like a stone it's not ripened, An over-ripe avocado will feel loose under the skin. A ripe avocado will feel the same as if you were to squeeze the palms of your hands.
  • If you have a unripened place in brown paper bag and store at room temperature and wait for 2-5 days to use.
  • For a previously used avocado, squeeze lemon juice over and cover with cling wrap. This will stop from turning brown and prolong it's life.

      Thankyou Thundermama, I find using a Mc Donald's bag works well when I need a ripe avocado in less than 2 days. It's very effective. Please try for yourself - thank you for your comment.

      I love fresh guacamole and this recipe looks yummy! I like all the information about healthy eating as well. I think they deleted your comment on my question. Anyway, it looks that way. Thanks for answering, though!

      You've provided a simple guac recipe that looks great. I love hearing what others put in their's. I also add cilantro and garlic salt and a squeeze of lime to mine. Avocados provide healthy fats, which makes me happy because it's so yummy.

      The guacamole dip is delicious! thanks for the recipe.. Mexican food is really good. The combination of the nachos with the guacamole, sour-cream and chili beans makes a good appetizer. Don't forget the margarita.
