Simple, quick and tasty homemade Guacamole

Simple, quick and tasty homemade Guacamole

I absolutely love avocados and when they are perfectly ripe; it only seems fitting to make your own guacamole! This will make enough for 2 people but is easily scalable should you want to make it for a party. 

My recipe really shouldn't take you any longer than 15 minutes to make so even when you think you don't have time - if you have all the ingredients in the house - definitely make it! 

I take one ripe avocado - discard the stone and then take out the green flesh and put into a bowl - I find it's easiest to mash the avocado with a fork. I like it to still be quite chunky but feel free to mash it your own preference. Squeeze half a lime on it and mix in - this will stop the browning whilst you prep the rest of the mixture. 

Get a blender/food processor/mini chopper and add a small, peeled garlic clove, a quarter of a red onion, a slice or 2 of red chilli and a handful of coriander. Blitz together until all ingredients are very finely chopped.

Now add the blitzed mix to the mashed avocado, season with salt and pepper and more lime juice {if it needs it} and mix well.

You can serve it immediately but I think it tastes better if it's been refrigerated for at least half an hour. Delicious with tortilla chips, veggie cruditΓ©s, Chilli Con Carne, fajitas - whatever you fancy really... 

** You can also add in some chopped deseeded, chopped tomatoes but as Si's not a fan; I've left them out.

Ingredients List:

  • 1 x perfectly ripe Avocado
