It’s creamy, fresh, and completely irresistible. No sour cream or mayonnaise or no peas or preservatives. Just fresh and healthy ingredients This Chunky Avocado Guacamole spread onto warm toasted bread is one of my favorite quick meals. It’s so delicious and very easy to make. The word “guacamole” and the dip, are both originally from Mexico, where avocados have been cultivated for thousands of years. The name is derived from two Aztec Nahuatl words—ahuacatl (avocado) and molli (sauce).
Avocado is one of my favorite fruit. Avocado has a very rich, creamy, and buttery texture. It also has an earthy and mildly sweet taste. It is also packed with lots of vitamins and minerals. For Guacamole, look for avocados that yield a bit to a gentle squeeze, but avoid using avocados that are mushy on the inside. Cut avocados in half, remove the pit, scoop the flesh into a bowl and mash it up with a fork or potato masher.
Guacamole is best eaten right after it’s made. Like apples, avocados start to oxidize and turn brown once they’ve been cut. A good amount of lime juice added to guacamole can help slow down that process. And if you store the guacamole properly, you can easily make it a few hours ahead if you are preparing for a party.
The trick to keeping guacamole green is to make sure air doesn’t touch it. Transfer it to a container, cover it with plastic wrap, and press down on the plastic wrap to squeeze out any air pockets. Make sure any exposed surface of the guacamole is touching the plastic wrap, not air. This will keep the amount of browning to a minimum.
Avocado Guacamole is a great substitute for mayonnaise, creamy avocado offers a similar smoothness and mouthfeel while providing nutrients and healthy fats. Serve it as a dip at your next party or spoon it on top of tacos for an easy dinner upgrade.
