Lemon Guacamole

Guacamole is an avocado-based dip from Mexico. It is of Aztec origin, the naming meaning 'avocado sauce'. It was originally made by mashing ripe avocados, with a molcajete (mortar and pestle) and then adding tomatoes and salt.

After the arrival of the Spanish conquistadors in Central America, guacamole became popular in Spain.


3 ripe avocados
1 small minced onion
2 small chopped tomatoes
Juice of small lemon
½ clove minced garlic
¼-½ tsp chili powder
¼-½ tsp ground cumin
¼ tsp salt to taste
½ tsp pepper to taste

Cooking Instructions

  • Gently peel and core the avocados and then mash.
  • Add the onion, tomatoes, lemon juice and spices, and then stir gently.
  • Cover tightly in a plastic food container (push the lid down onto the mixture so that its surface does not brown). Refrigerate for 1 hour before serving.

Served as an appetizer or side dish with tortilla corn chips.

Serves 6 people
