In less than five days I am saying bye to Mexico. I am feeling very nostalgic. Mexico holds a special place in my heart because of various reasons, few of them being that my son was born here and this place gave me opportunity to learn a lot specially in cooking. If I am writing this post it is because of Mexico.

Well I could not leave this country without posting the recipe of World famous Mexican Guacamole (pronounced as Wa-ka-Moley). Its a delicious yet easy side dish made with Avocados which we do not find easily in India. I think this recipe is my tribute to this beautiful country which gave us so much love.

Directions:

1. Finely chop the onion and keep aside. Cut the tomato in half and scoop out the seeds or pulp from its center using a spoon. Chop the outer cover finely and keep aside.

2. Once the onions and tomatoes are chopped, peel and cut avocado and mash it gently using a fork (Learn How to cut and peel an avacado). Leave the avocados chunky as it gives a great texture to the guacamole.  Avocados turn black fast due to oxidization so they must be peeled and cut only when you are ready to use them.

3. In a serving bowl add chopped onions, tomatoes and mashed avocados. Top it with finely chopped coriander leaves and green chili. Add lemon juice and salt pepper to taste.
