Notes

  1. Choose the right ripe avocado for the dip. It makes all the difference. Flavor and the taste comes from avocado. If you can use the avocados from Mexico, they are always the BEST.
  2. Use this dip as soon as it’s made. This dip tastes great when served fresh. If you let it sit it’ll turn brown.
  3. It takes 5 minutes to make this dip, recommend you make it fresh all the time.
  4. Use freshly squeezed lime juice. Freshly squeezed lemon juice works too.
  5. Can’t stand cilantro? You can substitute it with parsley or green onions. Let me tell you the flavour and taste might not be exactly the same, but it works.
  6. You can keep it chunky or make it smooth depending on your preference. To keep it chunky, mash everything with a fork or wooden spatula. 
  7. If you like spicy, generously sprinkle cayenne pepper. You can also increase the jalapeños in the recipe to add heat.
