Mr.CBB’s Tangy Easy Guacamole Dip $ 4.10

When the hot weather approaches Mrs. CBB and I have an incessant urge to eat lots more vegetables and fresh salads and this tangy easy guacamole is no exception. I first fell in love with guacamole after tasting the Indian version while in India a few years back. My recipe is not near as fancy as the Avocado Raita nor as authentic as the Mexican version but it’s tasty and is just as addictive. There are many reasons to eat more avocados  if not for the high fat content(14.1 g of fat in a half avocado-mostly unsaturated with 2 grams saturated) but for the heart healthy vitamins.

I like to serve my guacamole with tortilla chips, fresh-cut vegetables or on my homemade whole wheat tortillas (I promise you will never buy them again they are so easy to make), which I will be sharing with you shortly. Guacamole is a relatively frugal dip to make with the real cost coming from the avocados running about $1.25 each or cheaper depending where you buy them.  We picked up a pack of 6 for $2.99 on the reduced rack last week so we’ve been making this guacamole recipe over and over for about $4.10. With BBQ season in our face and backyard parties filling up the calendar this dip is easy on the budget and perfect for any gathering or potluck.

Yield: about 3 cups

Serves: 3-4 people

Prep Time:20 minutes

Guacamole Ingredients:

1/2 cup of diced red onion

2 ripe avocados halved,seeded and scooped

1 medium tomato diced

salt to taste

pepper to taste

Juice of 1 fresh lemon

Juice of 1 fresh lime

4 cloves of garlic chopped fine

2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil

1 teaspoon of cumin

1 cup sour cream + dollop for the top for presentation (we use Fat-Free)

Chives for on top of the sour cream for presentation

1/4 cup of fresh chopped cilantro


  • In a bowl mash the avocados with a fork but keep them a bit chunky.
  • Add in the oil,onions,garlic,lemon and lime juice and stir
  • In a bowl add the sour cream, cumin, salt, pepper stir together
  • Add the sour cream mix to the chunky avocado you mashed
  • Add in the cilantro  and tomatoes then gently stir to combine
  • Top with a dollop of sour cream and chopped chives
  • Let the ingredients meld together for 30 minutes for best flavour

Enjoy your Guacamole Dip!… and don’t miss my whole wheat tortilla recipe… it’s perfect with this dip!
