Notes

 

  1. The avocados have to be fresh and of perfect ripeness – If the avocado yields to firm gentle pressure you know it's ripe and ready-to-eat. Ripe, ready to eat avocados may have a darker color but color can vary so it is best to go by feel as well as color. If the avocado is mushy, it is probably over ripe and not fit.
  2. You can customize the basic version by adding boiled black beans, cheeses, Basil, hummus or chick peas, fresh corn,

You may add red pepper flakes to make the dip more spicy
