You can buy pretty decent Guacamole in many stores these days, so why bother to make your own? Most of the time I’d agree with you, especially if I’m catering for a larger group of people. However, from time to time I’ll be left with a ripe avocado that needs using up. Turning into a bowl of vibrant guacamole seems like the obvious choice. Especially as it can be made with ingredients that you probably already have lurking in the fridge.
- 2 medium Avocados ripe and ready to eat
- 1 Lime juiced
- 2 Cherry Tomatoes deseeded and chopped
- 2 tbsp Red Onion peeled and finely chopped
- ½ tsp Dried Chilli Flakes
- 1 tbsp Fresh Coriander Leaves chopped
- ¼ tsp Sea Salt Flakes
- Remove the flesh from the avocados and put into bowl. Use either a pestle or potato masher to crush it into a chunky paste. You want the texture to be smooth, but still have a few larger pieces of avocado. Add in the lime juice and stir well.
- Add in the tomatoes, onion, chilli flakes, coriander leaves and sea salt. Stir again until fully combined.
- Serve immediately, or cover well and pop into the fridge for an hour or two until needed. Guacamole is best enjoyed fresh, so try and avoid making it too far in advance.
