Chapathi Mexican Wraps with Guacamole

I love Mexican food. The best thing I love is the Guacamole dip. Till now, I never thought of making it at home...until I saw it at Jyoti's space. Then I realized its so simple and why can't I make it home..No cooking needed and its just mixing the ingredients and the dip is ready in few minutes. So I did try and just loved it. The main ingredient in the Guacamole is Avocado. Like the Chapathi Pizza Rolls, I thought of using the Guacamole for making an easy wrap using some left over chapathis. Do try it and I am sure you will love it !!







Ingredients:

2 Chapathis
1/2 cup Vegetables you prefer (I used only corn)

For Guacamole:
1 ripe Avocado
1/2 of a medium size Onion, finely chopped
1 ripe tomato, deseeded and  finely chopped
2-3 Green chillies, deseeded and finely chopped
2 tbsp Coriander leaves chopped
Lime
Pepper
Salt


Preparing Guacamole:
Cut the Avocado into half. Remove the pit and using a spoon, remove the flesh from the skin.Mash the avocado gently using a spoon to form a smooth paste.Squeeze some lime over this.
Add the onion, tomato, green chilli and cilantro to this. Mix well.
Sprinkle salt and pepper. Mix again. If you want, squeeze lime again.

( I forgot to click the Avocado snaps. So this is a Google image to show you how you need to cut it and this is how a ripe avocado look)

Preparing the wrap:
Microwave the corn for a minute. Add salt and pepper. Squeeze lime over this and mix well.
Add about 2-3 tbsp of Guacamole to  the corn and mix.
Place the mixture inside the chapathi and make a wrap.

Isn't the dip and the wrap so simple ???

You can use the Guacamole as a spread on your sandwich also. Some like to eat tortilla chips with this dip.



Notes:

*The avocado shouldn't be too hard which means its not ripe.It shouldn't be too mushy which indicates its overripe.Feel it with your hand before you buy.

*The avocados turn brown when exposed. So squeezing lime juice will help to some extent to retain the natural green color.

* After preparing Guacamole, store it in an air tight container. I usually refrigerate it.


*Its always better to make in lesser amount as the green color is lost as days go by. Better if prepared just before you serve.
