Dos Caminos Guacamole Recipe

Homemade guacamole is extremely easy to prepare, and this recipe will allow you to make guacamole at home that is just like the dip served at the Dos Caminos restaurants. Guacamole is a popular dip in Central America and Mexico, where the avocado has been cultivated for more than a thousand years. In the United States, where most avocados are the Hass variety grown in California, they are also used in salads and on sandwiches. The avocado is a very healthy food. The fruit is high in beta-sitosterol, which has been shown to lower cholesterol levels; it contains high levels of lutein, which has been shown to protect against macular degeneration and cataracts; it is high in oleic acid, which is believed to reduce the risk of breast cancer; a single serving of avocado provides almost a quarter of the recommended daily amount of folate, which reduces the risk of heart disease and stroke. So, how do you make this healthy and delicious dip?

Dos Caminos guacamole recipe

Instructions

The cilantro, onion, pepper and tomato should be prepared first. Avocado tends to oxidize and turn brown once it is exposed to air, so this ingredient should be prepared last.

Once the other ingredients are chopped and set aside, peel the avocado and remove the seed. The easiest way to do this is to cut the avocado in half lengthwise around the large round seed, then twist the halves apart, remove the seed, and scoop the fruit away from the rough outer skin. The avocado should be soft and easy to remove with a spoon and will have a yellowish green color and a creamy texture.

Immediately squeeze the lime juice onto the avocado to prevent discoloration, and mash the fruit with a fork. Don’t worry about mashing it all smooth. When the avocado is mashed, blend in the chopped ingredients and salt to taste.

Dos Caminos Guacamole Recipe Tips And Variations

Although this recipe duplicates the dip from the restaurant, you may find that you prefer a different flavor. Feel free to adjust ingredients or quantities to suit your own tastes. Guacamole is meant to taste good! Many people prefer guacamole which is hotter and use more peppers.

Others prefer a milder flavor, and either seed the jalapeno or use a milder pepper, such as poblano. Still others omit the tomato and pepper and substitute a can of Rotel diced tomatoes and chilies. This Dos Caminos guacamole recipe will teach you how to make good guacamole, but you will perhaps like your own version even more.
