Try for Five Guacamole

Guacamole (gwak-ah-MO-lee) is a Mexican dip made from avocados. The trick to making great guacamole is good ripe avocadoes. It’s yummy on everything! Try it on tacos, omelets, salads or with veggies like cucumbers, carrots and bell peppers.

Try for Five Guacamole

  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 1⁄2 cup diced tomato (from fresh or canned, drained)
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 heaping tablespoon fresh cilantro leaves, minced into little pieces
  • 1/2 fresh lime, squeezed
  • Hot sauce (if you like)
  • Pinch of salt

Serves: 4

Wash your hands with soap and water, then gather all your kitchen gear and ingredients and put them on a clean counter.
  1. With the help of your adult, slice each avocado in half. Remove the pit and scoop out the insides. Put the avocado in a bowl and using a fork, mash it until it is still chunky, not smooth.
  2. Add the diced tomato, chopped onion and minced cilantro leaves. Squeeze the lime and add the juice.
  3. Stir it all together, but not too much. Add hot sauce, if you like.
  4. Move the guacamole to a serving bowl and try it with slices of cucumber, radishes, carrots or bell peppers.

Note: ​Put the avocado pits in the guacamole to prevent it from turning brown from the air. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate no more than four hours.
