¡Hola! This summer, I have discovered my love for guacamole! Made from creamy avocados, guacamole is a great dip that can be eaten as a snack or on top of your toast for breakfast. The serving options are endless! I made guacamole a couple of times for friends this summer for some house gatherings that I had and they loved it! My friends have all tried different variations of guacamole so I can say that this recipe has been foodie approved! My guacamole is honestly the best I have tasted…(not tooting my own horn obviously haha). I added some herbs, veggies and spices to give it a kick and allow my guac to burst with flavour!
If you live in Western countries, avocados may seem expensive as they are mostly imported. I buy my avocados from the local farmers market in my neighbourhood in London. In supermarkets, guacamole normally sells at 2 for £1.30. However, in the market, I got 4 for £1! Making guac is definitely not an investment! Here is how I made the ULTIMATE guacamole:-
What you will need:- (serves 8)
half a tomato (without the seeds)
1/4 of a red onion
a few sprigs of coriander
a pinch or 2…or 3 of chilli powder
a generous pinch of salt and pepper
the juice of half a lime
1. Cut your avocado in half, scoop out the stone and scoop the filling out of the shell.
2. Put in a bowl and mash with a potato masher, fork or hands (your choice!)
3. Chop your vegetables into tiny pieces and add to the avocado mixture.
4. Add your seasoning and lime juice.
