Recipe for Traditional or Classic Guacamole

by Alejandro Mole

Mexican food has really been watered down in its trip around the planet. We add a little to it here, take away just a little something there, and before you know, you generally have fast food in a shell instead of in a bun. You'd be shocked how lots of individuals around who believe they adore Mexican food have never had an authentic Mexican meal in their lives. If you would like the real stuff, the traditional stuff, you have to go back to the conventional recipes. If you'd like real, classic guacamole recipe, then collect up these ingredients.

Traditional/Classic Guacamole Ingredients

2 Avocados, 1 Lime, 1 Green Chili Pepper, 1 Little Onion, 1 Tomato (the riper the better), Salt, Cumin, Olive Oil


To start, chop up the onion and tomato really fine, by hand. If you'd like the authentic flavor, if you would like genuine classic guacamole, leave your food processor in the cabinet and use a knife. You'd like it chopped up pretty fine, but not pureed.

Take the chili pepper and get rid of the seeds. Chop this up finely, as well, and add it to your tomato and onion mixture. Squeeze the lime by hand and add the juice to the mix. Don't use ready made lime juice. A little something is lost in the process. Possibly it is the pulp, or maybe it is just not really as fresh, but you wish to make certain to squeeze your own lime juice.

Take your avocados, cut them in half and eliminate the pits. Scoop the meat out using a spoon and mash it up in a bowl. Do not be concerned about attempting to get it too even. In actual fact, you would like some lumps and chunks. These small bits of avocado flesh in the pulp add to the homemade, classic experience of the appetizer.

Add your avocado to the mix, add salt to taste and a half tablespoon of cumin. Add just a spoonful of olive oil and mix it all with each other and you have classic, authentic guacamole dip. This guacamole recipe is the base for all guacamole and is the next best thing to taking a trip across the border.
