What's Cooking (in Yvonne's Kitchen)?

I've changed the name of this blog to What's Cooking (in Yvonne's Kitchen) because I will be getting a kitchen of my own very soon, it maybe small but will be able to produce more goodies to share with everyone!

Guacamole (Mexican Avocado Dip)

This is my all-time favorite Mexican dip that I make from time to time (or whenever I can buy good Haas avocados). It is a perfect complement to chips and quesadilla (qua-se-dia). Since Australian avocados are in season now and I got four for RM10 at the night market so I decided to make guacamole.

Key ingredients for the dip--Haas avocados, lime, garlic, shallot and green chilli. I cannot get serano or jalepeno chillies in Malaysia, I decided to substitute with green chillies.

Did I mention how super easy it is to make this dip?


2 riped Haas avocados (cubed)

3 cloves of minced garlic

1 minced shallot

1 jalapeno or green chili (de-seeded and chopped finely)

1 tbsp lime juice

some salt

½ tsp lime zest (for the extra kick)

some coriander leaves (chopped finely)

1. Mix the garlic, shallot, chili, lime juice and lime rind together in a bowl.

2. Stir in the avocado cubes and mix well

3. Season with salt and toss the coriander leaves
