Traditionally the dish is prepared after smashing the ripe avocados. However, it can be varied according to your taste and choice. To prepare and cook the dish, it will not take more than 15 to 20 minutes. Guacamole is originated from Mexico but today it’s one of the most popular Mexican appetizer dishes in restaurants.

- 3 avocados (peeled, pitted, and mashed)
- 1 lime (juiced)
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/2 cup red onion (diced)
- 3 tablespoons cilantro (chopped)
- 2 plum tomatoes (diced)
- 1 teaspoon garlic (minced)
- 1 pinch grounded cayenne pepper for heat
To begin preparing the recipe first you need to take a medium bowl. After that, mash together the avocados, salt and lime juice in that bowl. After completing the mashing process thoroughly, mix in onion, tomatoes, cilantro and garlic with the mashed avocado, lime juice and salt mixture. Blend the grounded cayenne pepper with the mixture to add some spice to it. To get the best flavor, for an hour keep it in refrigerator to let it cool down. You can serve it immediately after preparing. However, if you want to make it a chilled summer snack then serve it to your guests after refrigerating it.
It is the traditional way to make it smooth, but you can also keep it in chunky pieces without mashing the avocados. It is low on calorie and mouthwatering if prepared properly. To give it some variation, you can change and add some ingredients, like if you want to feel a sour taste, add some extra lime juice, and cayenne pepper can be substituted with the jalapenos to make it more yummy.
