Guacamole is a very famous Mexican Avocado dip. The trick to make perfect guacamole is using good, ripe avocados. Check for ripeness by gently pressing the outside of the avocado. If it is hard, the avocado is not ripe yet and will not taste good. If it is soft but firm, the avocado is ripe. If it is very soft and feels like pulpy, its over ripe and not good for guacamole.
