Summer Fresh Raw Guacamole

Call it what you will "Guac", "Green Dip", "G-Mole", or whatever. The basic ingredients of guacamole don't ever change too drastically, and to imagine any severe twist on it would result in something that guacamole lovers wouldn't even refer to as guacamole. Historically, guacamole has roots with the Aztecs in the ancient areas of what is now Mexico. The name literally translates to "avocado sauce" and has become a staple during the Super Bowl and Cinco de Mayo.

Cook Time

Prep time: 15 min
Ready in: 15 min
Yields: Serves 6-8 people

Guacamole Ingredients

  • 6 Avocados, Peeled & Pitted (Save The Pits)
  • 1/2 Large White Onion, Minced
  • 4 Cloves Garlic, Minced
  • 1/2 Cup Lime Juice
  • 2 TBSP Cumin
  • 3 TBSP Paprika
  • 2 TBSP Cayenne Pepper
  • 1 Large Tomato, Diced
  • 1/4 Cup Cilantro, Chopped

Easy Raw Guacamole

  1. Combine peeled and pitted avocados, minced onion, minced garlic, cumin, paprika, cayenne pepper, cilantro, and lime juice in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Using a soup spoon slowly combine ingredients while breaking down the avocados into chopped sized pieces until you are able to stir the mixture.
  3. If necessary, add more lime juice to suit your preferred level of consistency, though chunky is better.
  4. Stir in Diced Tomato pieces until fully mixed in.
  5. Serve with nacho chips, vegetables, or crackers. Use to accompany chicken and rice dishes, or as part of the filling for burritos or tacos.
  6. Store leftover guacamole covered in the fridge with 1 or 2 of the leftover pits. This extends the life and colour of the guacamole, preventing it from turning brown as quickly as it normally would.

Guasacaca

Made with vinegar, this Venezuelan avocado-based dip/sauce is thinner and more acidic. It's typically served over grilled food such as empanadas, but like a guacamole, it usually isn't spicy and is served cold.

Mantequilla de pobre

Very similar to guacamole, Mantequilla de pobre (poor-man's butter) combines avocado, tomato, oil, and citrus juice. It isn't a butter substitute but the name is derived from the consistency.
