    A little salt. Some pepper. A few table spoons olive oil. The juice of half a lemon or less. A little garlic. Maybe some rice or soy milk, or soy creem - or maybe not.

    Oh, and one avocado.

    But be careful. It's addictive!

    If your 'what I ate today' is anything to go by, I'm sure you could find a few fries to dip into it

    No, please no... don't put soymilk or silken tofu in your guacamole.. that's just not right.

    Oil isn't needed either.

    My guacamole only has avocado, the juice of one lime (no lemons - it makes it funnytasting), a bit of salt, a little pepper, about 1 clove or so worth garlic and some El Pato to give it spice (don't add too much or you'll thin it down). You can also use canned jalapeno juice for the heat, but I like the El Pato better. Mash with a fork until it's somewhat creamy, somewhat chunky. Eat with anything humans can consume.

    Sometimes, if I'm feeling extra fancy, I'll put in a half teaspoon of cumin, a roma tomato chopped up, and a bit of fine diced onion.

    ETA: if you don't have El Pato, then just use about 1/8 teaspoon of ceyanne pepper.

    Default Holy Guacamole, Batman!

    (This is my recipe, tried, tested, tastebud approved)
    Guacamole!

    Serves 4 - 8
    Prep. time: 10 - 15 Minutes


    Ingredients:
    2 avocados - peeled
    1 medium tomato - diced
    1 Tbs. lime juice
    salt to taste
    dash of black pepper


    Variations:
    - Add 1 or 2 Tbs. finely chopped raw onion
    - Add chopped cilantro, to taste
    - For extra spicy flavor, add a few chopped jalapeno peppers, 1 tbs. chopped onion, 1 tbs. chopped red bell pepper, 1 tsp. chili powder, & chopped cilantro and additional black pepper to taste

    Directions:
    1. Mash avocados until they are very smooth & creamy
    2. Mix in other ingredients


    Serving Suggestions:
    - Serve as a dip with chips, bread, or crunchy veggies
    - Use as a condiment with Mexican and Indian entrees
    - Use instead of mayonnaise on sandwiches
    - Serve on top of cooked rice
    - Stuff inside tomatoes



    Notes:
    - Store in an airtight container & keep in the refrigerator
    (Avocados turn brown when they are exposed to air, but, still OK to eat)
    - Eat within 24 hours

    Try this recipe with guacamole.

    Black Bean Taquitos
    12 corn tortillas
    1 cup refried black beans (can substitute pinto or other beans)
    1 1/2 cups light flavored olive oil
    salsa
    guacamole
    Tofutti Sour Cream

    Directions:

    Heat olive oil in a pan at low or med-low heat for 2 minutes or until hot. Microwave tortillas for 45 seconds.
    Scoop 1 – 1 ½ tablespoon of beans on each tortilla one at a time and roll into a thin taquito (about a ½ inch diameter).
    Fry, 3 at a time, with tongs for about 4 minutes, turning every minute.
    Place on plate lined with paper towel to drain excess grease.
    Use sour cream and guacamole as dipping sauces.
    YUM!

    Well, maybe you are better off. I am not a big fryer myself. But I do think olive oil has some health benefits.

    Me too! I just use it in small amounts and unheated for it's health benefits. Also I really LOVE to eat olives themselves and used to buy unsalted Peruvian olives but they aren't available anymore I LOVE salted olives but avoid salty things in excess as well so I am really hoping the olives become available again soon.

    Please know I am not criticizing you or anyone else who eats fried foods at all. I was simply commenting on *my* preferences. I LOVE deep-fried food but can't bring myself to fry foods! I also love fats in general, so much that I have stopped buying Earth Balance because EVERYTHING tastes better with it! I mean it, my family could go through a tub a week! We just have it in the house when I am doing a catering gig and that's it.

    I made guacamole tonight (just avocado, lemon juice (lime looked a bit past its best) salt and pepper). Avocados are fantastic.

    Anyway, I made chilli for my mum and sister, and my mum had never had guacamole before!!!! I had pinched the avocado from her fridge to make it and she was a bit peeved at first (in an extremely comical and rather tipsy sort of way) but she changed her mind when she tried it

    Something interesting: Even though avocados are fruit, each one has 25 g of fat! But it's the good kind of fat, so it should be ok.

    Sometimes in "mixes" for making guacamole I see dairy. Is it common for guacamole to be nonvegan? Because in my cafeteria at school there is usually guacamole available as a condiment, and I always assumed that it's just avocados, spices, etc. I should probably ask to make sure it's vegan. God, people put dairy in EVERYTHING these days... it's ridiculous.

    We used to live on the border way down south in TX and we'd eat in Mexico on the weekends. They'd make this to die for Guacamole salad...

    Avacodo mashed
    Tomato chopped
    Onion chopped
    Cilantro
    juice 1/2 lime (or whole key lime)
    Serrano pepper chopped (this gave it a different flavor than the jalapeno)

    They'd bring it out with everything separated on a plate and we'd mix it together ourselves and add salt to taste. I didn't like guacamole much before and now I'm an addict.

    It's coriander.

    I make guacamole by blending together avocado's, garlic, lemon (or lime) juice and salt & pepper

    If you want your guacamole to last longer then blend in some spinach leaves, it stops it from discolouring so it can last you a few days.

    I make Guac several times a week... I usually make just 1 avocado at a time, because it doesn't keep well. Though, if you leave the pit in the guac after you make it and cover it very tightly, it can last an extra day!

    I take...

    1 nice sized avocado
    2-5 cherry or grape tomatoes (depending on size, or a 1/4 of a med/lg tomato)
    1 small glove of garlic, crushed
    a nice small handful of cilantro chopped
    2-5 "rings" of jalapeno chopped (more or less depending on spice level!)
    nice squeeze of lime, lemon or even tangerine works if that's all you've got.
    pinch of salt & pepper
    pinch of cumin (optional)

    mix together.... I like chunky guac, but feel free to make the avocado smooth and then add ingredients...

    Some places add sour cream for texture. Or really to make it cheaper, probably. I would definitely ask, I've found a few restaurants in town that do this.

    My quick guac is mashed avocado, lime juice, dashes of garlic powder, salt and pepper. Maybe dried cilantro or hot sauce.

    For more propper (planned) guac I'll add chopped tomato, onion, real garlic and fresh cilantro.

    Ah yes, coriander seed and cilantro taste completely different. Cilantro is probably the same thing as coriander leaf. Although a dash of ground coriander in guac might be nice...

    I've accidentally made a new dip - Tomole!

    I went to make guacmole and put too many toms in, which has made it a red/brown/green sort of colour and a lot more tomatoey, but very tasty nonetheless
