  • Next, you will want to create the creamy solution that forms the base for guacamole. You can do this by pouring lime juice into the bowl with avocadoes and mixing the two.
  • It’s now time to add in your garlic and herbal infused oil, mixing the solution all the while.
  • Finally, get started on adding your condiments. Your tomatoes, cilantro leaves and diced peppers should be added slowly instead of all at once. That way, you can always add more if you want it to be more flavorful.
  • Once everything has been mixed well, have a taste of your dip. Here is where you may wish to add more ingredients according to taste.

Bonus: How to Tell if Your Avocadoes Are Ripe

Are avocadoes one of your favorite fruits? Besides using it to make dip, you can also consume it on its own and incorporate it into other dishes. Avocadoes have developed a reputation as a superfood and comes with many health benefits, including lowering of cholesterol and the improvement of gut function and heart health.

Before getting started on making your herbal infused dip, you will need to know if the avocadoes you have purchased are ripe. One way you can tell is by giving each one a squeeze. If it feels too firm, the avocado isn’t ready to be eaten. If it gives way beneath your touch, it’s ripe and ready.

Need a more certain way of telling? Pull out the stem and take a closer look at the revealed color. If you have trouble even pulling out the stem, this is an indication that the avocado is not ripe yet. A brown color indicates an overripe avocado whereas green is ready for eating.
