Guacamole is an avocado based relish diet dip. Avocado is regarded as one of nature's super rich fruits. Guacamole was valued for its high fat and vitamin content. It was originally made adding tomatoes and salt. Ripe avocados, lime and salt are common to most recipes. Lime or lemon juice is added not just for flavor but also to slow the reaction of the enzyme that causes browning.

Other common ingredients with guacamole include minced or grated red onion, black pepper, chili pepper, garlic, cumin, cilantro or coriander, and sauce. Some add sour cream as a filler and preservative.

You can even use fork to mash avocados and skip the yogurt. Add lemon, salt and pepper and mix it thoroughly. Dice the onion into small squares and grate the garlic. Add them into the mixture.

Nutritional facts about guacamole

In the US two 'National Guacamole Days' are celebrated - on September 16th and November 14th. Although guacamole is highly nutritious, it can add up to the calories. A 2 tablespoon serving of classic guacamole dip has approximately 50 calories and 4.5 g of fat. Since guacamole is a nutrient dense food, chewing down on high calorie chips could be counterproductive. Instead, crunchy vegetables can be used in guacamole.

Avocado has the highest fat content of any fruit which helps to speed up body metabolism, leading to weight loss. Avocado is rich in vitamins A, K, E, C, and B among others. There is adequate fiber in avocado. Potassium and oleic acid are also present. There are phyto-nutrients in avocado especially in the Hass variety. Carotenoids are also available in avocado and when eaten with other vegetables are better absorbed in the body. This is why guacamole is considered a healthy food.
