Dips for Cinco de Mayo: Basic Guacamole recipe
Dips are a tasty way to get a party started. Today I have three dips for Cinco de Mayo that taste great with veggies, chips, or warmed tortillas. Classic, customizable guacamole is a cool foil to a hot chorizo con queso dip, and pico de gallo is chunkier than a traditional salsa but still packs a ton of flavor. Also, it’s so incredibly simple that once the ingredients are chopped, you’re pretty much done with the entire thing. Let’s start with the guacamole:
- 2 ripe avocados
- 1 Tablespoon lime juice
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
Scoop the flesh from the avocados into a bowl. Add the lime juice, salt and cilantro. Mash until creamy.
This is the most basic of recipes for guacamole, and there are plenty of ways to add to it. If you’re feeling a little kicky, add some pico de gallo or a little bit of salsa. Add more cilantro if you feel like it, or don’t add any at all. Maybe sprinkle some cumin on top or add some ancho chiles. The guac possibilities are literally endless.
