Easy Guacamole

This week is both Cinco De Mayo and Mother’s Day! It’s a good week with some great food available. One of my favorite very easy Mexican dishes is Guacamole, but like many other dips as it sits guacamole tends to go very brown and can start weeping, and you just can’t keep it for more than a few hours. A combination of lime juice and Ultra Gel brings both flavor and fridgability.

Now, I’m not claiming this will totally keep your guac from browning a bit. Avocado just oxidizes at the drop of a hat and the only way to stop that is to eat it fast. However, the combination of the juice and the Ultra Gel really does help and it will keep it from weeping in the fridge, provided no one double dips and contaminates your dip!

Easy Guacamole

4 medium avocados

Juice from 1 lime

1-2 Tablespoons Ultra Gel

salt

pepper

garlic powder

onion powder

Remove the flesh from the avocados and crush lightly. Mix in lime juice and Ultra Gel until well mixed. Add spices to taste. Eat. To refrigerate: Cover tightly. I press a layer of plastic wrap right onto the dip which does a lot to keep the air way.
