Guacamole is one of the easiest dips and accompaniment to spicy dishes eg. tacos, quesadillas and nachos. As long as you have just a few basic ingredients you have a dip to serve when unexpected guests drop by. Serve the guacamole with corn chips, vegetable batons or toasted slithers of pita bread.
