Method of cooking guacamole - avocado sauce
Ripe avocado gently cut in half, remove the bone and remove the peel. With a ripe fruit, the peel is removed very easily. If the halves of the peel are left intact, then they can be served sauce to the table.
Put the pulp in a porcelain or glass bowl, knead with a fork. If you like smooth pasta, then puree this fruit in a blender.
In order for avocados not to get an unappetizing brown color, you need to add an antioxidant to it - lime or lemon juice. So, squeeze about a tablespoon of lemon juice, mix it with fruit puree.
Peel a clove of garlic, press down with a knife, chop finely, add to mashed potatoes in a bowl.
Garlic can also be skipped through a garlic press.
Sweet and ripe cherry tomatoes cut finely, put in a bowl.
Instead of cherry tomatoes, you can take half of an ordinary tomato, only let it be ripe and sweet, it affects the taste of the finished dish.
Finely chop a small bunch of cilantro or parsley, add to the rest of the ingredients.
Be sure to tear off the leaves from the stalks of green, in a delicate sauce it is unpleasant to feel pieces of hard stems.

Stir the paste well, so that the ingredients get better acquainted, the salt melted, and the mash became homogeneous.
We get a big bag of crispy chips, take a bowl of sauce and get comfortable - enjoy life. Enjoy your meal!
