Dish It: Guacamole

With Cinco de Mayo around the corner, we’re feeling extra festive. What better way to celebrate Mexican culture and heritage than with some delicious guacamole? This dish – often classified as a “sauce” – dates back to the ancient Aztecs who were very vocal about their preference for avocados. Traditional Mexican recipes have only a few ingredients but lack nothing in terms of flavor. Wow all of your friends and floor-mates with this easy recipe from



Grab some Tostitos and you’re all set to enjoy this festive dish!


What You’ll Need:

-5 large avocados (some people claim that Hass avocados are the best, but it’s up to you)
-1 medium white onion (diced)
-3/4 cup loosely packed cilantro (chopped finely)
-1 large tomato, diced
-Optional: finely chopped jalapeno, lime juice

What You’ll Do:

1. Cut avocados in half and throw out the seeds then scoop into a bowl. Slice the halves then mash them until you are happy with the consistency. Some people suggest adding some lime juice to prevent browning but this is optional.

2. Add chopped onions, tomato, and cilantro. Stir gently to mix all of the ingredients together. Stir in the chopped jalapeño last and try small samples to determine how spicy it is. Add more if you like it spicier.

3. Serve with tortilla chips or add it to your favorite Mexican dish. Delicioso!

Avocados are high in potassium, fiber, AND vitamin C which makes this delicious snack even tastier. Are you a guacamole fan? Share your own recipe tips with us below! Happy Cinco de Mayo!
