Classical Guacamole

Guacamole is a mexican dip or a salad. Guacamole is Avocado in other words Butter fruit. Its known by different names around the world.

I use to enjoy eating this fruit with sugar and at times make milkshake. Today I am herewith to share an interesting and easy dip which is known as Guacamole. I first tasted this at a Mexican restaurant along with chips. So lets get started.

Serves a big cup

Cut the Avocados in half and scoop out the flesh. Chop them to bite size pieces and add to a medium bowl.
