Ingredients for Guacamole – Easy Mexican Avocado Dip

  • 2 ripe avocados . (Ripe avocados are slightly soft to the touch. Upon pressing at the stem, they should ‘give’ a  little. If the stem sinks in however, the avocado is over ripe. Upon flicking open the stem which should come off easily for a ripe avocado, you should see a yellow to light green color. This is a good ripe avocado).
  • 1 large, ripe, firm tomato – diced
  • 2 shallots ( or you can use scallions or white onions, diced)
  • Juice of ½ – 1 green lime
  • 3 Tbsp finely chopped cilantro ( coriander)
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste (optional)


  • Add the peeled shallots to a mortar.  Crush till minced.
  • Slice and de-stone the avocado. De- stone the avocado by piercing the stone with the tip of a small knife (carefully) and twisting to remove the stone.
  • You can scoop out the flesh with spoon or cut the pitted avocado in quarters and peel off the skin.
  • avocado destoned
