Most Mexican food is usually spicy with the exotic herbs and spices available in Mexico to make some of the most delectable foods. Guacamole is a topping or a side dish that is made from avocado that is not very spicy, therefore, can be used as a way to cool the mouth from the other hot flavors dancing on your taste buds. Authentic guacamole tastes good with most any kind of Mexican food but in a restaurant is traditionally given as a side topping for a meal or with tortilla chips and salsa. It is simple to make guacamole, and there are a thousand different ways to do so. It all depends on the ingredients that you choose to include in your guacamole dip.
Some Mexican households mix guacamole with tuna fish. This is a regional dish and is only eaten in some parts of Mexico. Other places mix guacamole with sour cream or salsa to either cool the flavor or add an extra zing to it. No matter how you like to eat your guacamole, making fresh, homemade guacamole is always the best. This way you know that it is going to be flavorful and exactly how you like it! Here is a simple, authentic Mexican guacamole recipe. This recipe makes 3 servings.
Authentic Mexican Guacamole Ingredients
- 3 avocados, peeled, pitted and mashed
- 1 red onion, minced
- 1 red bell pepper, chopped
- 1 green bell pepper, chopped
- 1/2 yellow bell pepper, chopped
- 1 fresh jalapeno, chopped
- 1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
- 1 lime, juiced
In a medium size bowl, combine the mashed avocados, fresh jalapeno and red onion. Stir until everything is combined.
In a small bowl, place all the green, red and yellow peppers. Pour the lime juice over the top and toss so that all the chopped pieces are covered. The lime juice will keep them from turning brown and molding as quick as they usually would without the acidic juice. Add these peppers to the avocado mix once they have been thoroughly covered in lime juice. The limes can be tossed unless you have a nice cold cervasa or beer sitting close by that it can be added to!
Reserve a pinch of cilantro to use as a garnish. Pour the rest of the cilantro in the avocado mix. Stir in thoroughly. Cilantro can have quite a hot taste, so be sure that it is spread throughout the guacamole and not clumped together.
Sprinkle the reserved cilantro on the top of your guacamole. Cover the container with a piece of plastic wrap so that no moisture gets into the guacamole. This can cause mold to grow quickly. Refrigerate until ready to eat.
