Zesty Guacamole

Guacamole is an amazingly easy side dish to make yet it adds a hearty authentic texture to Mexican food. Avocados have a buttery flavor that makes for a great chip dip, or as a condiment on tacos or enchiladas.

Unlike bean dip, which can be bought in a store with high quality, guacamole really needs to be freshly made. Never fear though, as long as you can find a ripe avocado, this dish only takes 5 minutes to make.

  • 1 Ripe Avocado
  • 1 Plum Tomato, diced.
  • 1/4 Medium Spanish Onion, chopped.
  • 1/2 Tsp Paprika
  • 1/4 Tsp Cayenne Pepper (Adjust to Taste).
  • 1 Large Lime, or 2 Key Limes.


  1. If the Avocado is not fully ripe, dice it into small cubes.
  2. Add the spices and squeeze the lime onto the Avocado
  3. Mash thoroughly with a fork.
  4. Mix in the onions and tomatos. You can skip this step if you are using this dish as a condiment for Tacos since you will be adding other stuff to it.
  5. Serve with tortilla chips and Salsa.
