Who doesn’t love guacamole. It basically a combination of all my favourite foods/flavours, avocado, lime, chilli and mexico. You can whip up this guacamole so quickly and whack it as an accompaniment to most dishes to up the flavour. I add a fresh chilli for some real heat but if you don’t like it too hot (or don’t have any chillies handy) it is just as good with a large pinch of chilli flakes. I keep everything nice and chunky so its got a good bite but if you prefer it smooth mash the avocado well and chop everything a bit smaller.
For the guacamole – serves 8 = 3sp each or serves 4 = 5sp each (Flex)
2 ripe avocados (155g each)
1 large ripe tomato, roughly diced
1 small red onion, finely chopped
1 chilli, red or green, deseeded and finely chopped (or large pinch of crushed chilli flakes
Pinch of garlic salt
Juice 1 large lime
A handful coriander, leaves and stalks chopped, plus a few leaves, roughly chopped, to serve
Halve and stone the avocados (saving a stone) and use a spoon to scoop out the flesh into the bowl. Roughly mash the avocado to the consistency of your choice (I like it nice and chunky).
Tip all the other ingredients into the bowl, then season with salt and pepper. Use a fork to roughly mash everything together.
If not serving straight away, sit a stone in the guacamole (this helps to stop it going brown), cover with cling film and chill until needed.
