Guacamole, delicious Mexican avocado dip

Prep time 10 min
Serves 4
Difficulty Easy

Guacamole is a very tasteful Mexican avocado dip. If you are inviting your friends to a house party you can serve it with chips (corn chips, nachos or something similar), or with lunch.

This is a simple recipe. Across the web you can find countless different recipes, but this is a simpler variation with locally available ingredients. Never let the lack of ingredients stop you from making delicious food!

Tip: If the avocado is hard, live it a few days so it can ripen and soften.


  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 smaller or a half of a bigger onion
  • half a lemon (squeezed)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • salt to taste


  • Squeeze lemon
  • Cut avocado halfway and take out seed. Scoop out avocado with a tablespoon. Using a fork mash the avocado. Sprinkle it with lemon juice.
  • Chop onion and garlic as fine as you can. I do not recommend the use of a blender, but leave it so you can chew it. Pour the avocado puree.
  • Mash it until you achieve desirable structure.


Some people prefer adding finely diced tomato, cilantro or/and mint to increase the effect of freshness, so if you want, try these variations as well.
