Guacamole

Guacamole is a simple and deliciously healthy Mexican dip. There are many recipes for it; some call for more tomatoes and some advocate using more avocado, I prefer the latter cos I love avocado.




Make sure you find ripe soft avocados for this, because unripe ones will ruin this otherwise delicious and healthy dip.

Ingredients:

3 soft ripe avocados, scooped and mashed.
Juice of 1 lime.
1 large ripe red tomato, finely chopped.
1 small red onion, finely chopped.
A slack handful of coriander leaves, finely chopped.
1 red chilli pepper, deseeded and finely chopped.
Salt and black pepper to taste.

Method:

Assemble all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well, adding salt and freshly-ground black pepper to taste.


Serve with crispy tortilla chips or nachos, sour cream and salsa.
