Guacamole is a quintessential Mexican recipe. Its star ingredient is the versatile fruit- avocado. Recently, I came across fresh, green avocados in my local grocery store and upon much research, I decided to make this delicious and healthy recipe. Since this dish requires ripe avocados, I kept the fresh ones in the sunlight for about two days and monitored the change in colour. As soon as they turned a shade darker to brown/red, I brought it to the kitchen to make my version of this classic recipe.
Guacamole is the quickest and easiest dish that I have made thus far. Also, it extremely high on nutrients and delicious on the palate. Guacamole can easily be used in salads, dips or condiments. So do try this dish and for a healthy evening binge!
