For the last day of the marathon, cooking by Alphabets is G. I have for G for Guacamole. It is a Mexican dip made of avocados. It is such an easy preparation that even a 5 year old cannot go wrong with this preparation.

  • Cut the avocado horizontally or lengthwise. This fruit has a pit and you cannot cut across. Cut it all around and then twist it around to open the two pieces.
  • Remove the pit or the seed and scoop out the flesh into a bowl and mash it using a fork or a back of a spoon.
  • Cut a tomato and remove the pulp and chop it.
  • Chop onions & green chilies or Serrano peppers.
  • Add these to avocado and mix well. Add salt & lime juice.
  • Taste and adjust the seasoning. I added a pinch of black pepper the dip wasn’t spicy enough.
  • If serving right way, add cilantro and serve it with tortilla chips or fresh warm tortillas. I had some left over toasted pita bread from yesterday and served it with guacamole.


  • All the ingredients listed above can be adjusted to your taste
  • Few recipes call on the web called for garlic as well. Can add it if one like the flavor for garlic.
  • One of cousin’s adds dry oregano to the dip and it tastes fine. Use this as a base recipe and adjust or add more flavors to one’s liking.

Recipes I posted this month in 2009, in 2010 and in 2011.
