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: Leave the avocado a few days so it can ripen and soften.


  1. 2 ripe avocados
  2. 3 cloves garlic
  3. 1 smaller or a half of a bigger onion
  4. half a lemon (squeezed)
  5. 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  6. salt to taste

Preparation [10 minutes]

  1. Squeeze lemon
  2. Cut avocado halfway and take out seed. Scoop out avocado with a tablespoon. Using a fork mash the avocado. Sprinkle it with lemon juice.
  3. 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.
  4. Mash it until you achieve desirable structure.


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