Guacamole is a popular variety of Mexican dip that most folks enjoy. But what’s in it, beyond ripe avocado? The other key ingredients are onion, tomato, garlic, lime juice, pepper, and salt.

The best thing about guacamole is its high nutritional value, so you don’t have to feel guilty about eating it.

  • Avocados are full of healthy fat and digestive fiber.
  • Guacamole has only raw ingredients, giving you the full nutritional benefit of all its fruits and vegetables.
  • Guacamole is gluten-free and vegan, so it’s suitable for almost every diet.

How to Cut Avocados Easily

Yes, there’s an easy way to cut avocados! During my early days in the kitchen, I used to make a big mess because I was just slicing avocados in half and then scooping. But I’ve found there’s a smarter way to cut these up.

  • First, slice the fruit vertically into two halves and make the halves into vertical quarters.
  • Use your thumb to remove the large seed.
  • Then just peel off the rind! If it won’t peel off easily, use a spoon to scoop out the fruit.

That’s it! Pretty easy, right?!

How to Serve Guacamole

This spread works well with many foods.

Scoop it with tortilla chips for snacking, add it to your tacos, fajitas, and quesadillas as a filling, or serve a scoop with a grilled fish main dish. You can also serve it with our Mexican frittata or pinto bean casserole.

Or make our favorite — guacamole toast! Wheat bread or multi-grain bread works best for the toast. Top your avocado toast with a poached egg or smoked salmon (or both!) for a perfect meal. And if you like spicy, you can also drizzle it with a little hot sauce.

If it’s lunchtime, you can spread the guacamole between two pieces of toasted bread, and pop a fried egg in there too (and maybe some bacon??) for a yummy avocado sandwich.

To sum it up, you can really get creative with guacamole!

Perfecting Your Guacamole

The general rule of thumb is to make this dip with a balanced mix of flavors. Not too spicy, not too salty, and definitely not too bland.

Sometimes I’ll just taste my way through the proportions of ingredients, but here we’ve laid the measurements out for you. But definitely feel free to adjust per your taste preferences.

We use chopped cilantro leaves in this recipe, but some people don’t like cilantro. If that’s you, just leave it out. Your guac will still taste excellent.
