Guacamole

A simple, fresh traditional Mexican authentic guacamole made up of only a few ingredients; avocado, onion, chilli, coriander, salt and lime – with optional added tomato, and black pepper.

Guacamole may be a super simple dish, made up of just a few ingredients – but they can definitely be bad or good.  You can get all sort of combinations and additions if you buy them at the shop. But traditional authentic guacamole is actually made up of just a few fresh ingredients, it is so easy that you won't be buying it again!

  • Avocado

  • Onion – I’ve used red onion, but white onion works well too.

  • Salt

  • Lime Juice (and even this is seen as optional)

  • Chilli

  • Coriander

  • Cherry tomatoes

  • Black pepper

A quick note here, Lime juice can overpower the flavours as there are just a few ingredients on this recipe. But in my opinion and I am a lime/lemon lover it is essential but it is all up to you use using or not or use just a little.

Ingredients

  • 3 ripe avocados

  • 1 small red onion

  • 2 limes, juiced (optional) 

  • 1/4 tsp salt 

  • 1 cup chopped coriander leaves (or less, to taste)

  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes (optional)

  • 1/4 tsp pepper

  • 1 green small jalapeño chilli

  • Dash of smash garlic 

HOW TO MAKE THE GUACAMOLE

Chop the onion, chilli and coriander. Squeeze out the lime juice. 

 

Gently mash the avocados with a fork. Optionally, use a potato masher, till the avocado is creamy and ever so slightly chunky.

 

Mix the chopped veggies, lime juice (optional) and salt into the avocado mash. 

Mix and enjoy or take it one step further with some additional ingredients at your choice.
