Creamy, rich and a huge hit served with tortilla chips ( fantastic paired up with Fresh Mexican Tomato Salsa - Pico De Gallo ) or as an accompaniment to your favorite mexican fare.
- 4 ripe avocados, fork smashed
- 2 -3 garlic cloves, roasted and mashed
- 1⁄2 sweet onions or 1⁄2 red onion, diced
- 1⁄2 lemon, juice of (or more to taste)
- 1⁄4 cup fresh parsley or 1⁄4 cup cilantro, chopped
- 1 serrano peppers (optional) or 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped (optional)
- salt (to taste)
- 1 ripe tomato, seeded and chopped (medium size)
- In a bowl fork smash the avocado with the roasted garlic until you have reached the desired consistency. Add in the onion, lemon juice, parsley or cilantro, hot pepper (if using), tomato and salt. Mix well and taste. Cover tightly and refrigerate, you may need to stir before eating as the avocados can oxidize on the air exposed areas (turns grey in color).
- Note: **Always add the tomato last as if you decide to mash the mixture some more you won't mash the tomatoes into pulp and juice.
- Great served along side recipe#286463 !
This was excellent I served this with your Fresh Mexican Tomato Salsa - Pico De Gallo and Mandy's Lemon Hummus With Pine Nuts. For an absolute hit at a gathering I had tonight every single dip got rave reviews. I added 2 red chilies as that is what I had on hand. This was delicous with just the right amount of spice. I have saved all recipes made, to make again as not only did I love them but with all the fab reviews I got they have got to go on a regular roster, especially when having to take something to gatherings what perfect dips. Huge thumbs up by all :)
Great guacamole! I used a clove of raw garlic as well as the roasted cloves, because we love garlic. I used the serrano chili and cilantro. I like the chunky texture of fork-smashing. Made excellent appetizer with chips.
