Avocado Dip/ Guacamole

Guacamole makes a good topping for tacos or tostadas and can be served as a refreshing salad all by itself. There are many ways to make this popular food, and all of them are delicious.The essential ingredients are avocados and lime or lemon juice. Without the acid from the fruit juice, the avocados quickly turn brown, so be sure to add it.The number of chiles you use depends on how hot you want your guacamole.Taste it before adding too many. Instead of chiles, you can use a dash of chili powder or Tabasco sauce for a little heat.
