Guacamole is a Mexican sauce made from avocado seasoned with garlic, chilli, lime juice, onion, tomato and spices. It is used as dip, condiment or salad ingredient and sometimes added to sandwiches to enhance the flavour. To prepare guacamole, you need to buy couple of fresh avocadoes from the market and ripen them at home in normal temperature. Just keep them wrapped in a paper or plastic packet and it will take 2-3 days for the avocadoes to acquire the desired ripened consistency. Make the guacamole quickly after and luxuriate in its creamy richness. Mmmmmmmmm, bliss!
