This is a variation of the delicious guac my old housemate Amy used to make for me (under duress), now, I don’t have her patience for carefully crafting amazing dips, I just want to eat. So I figured out how to make my own guacamole in a matter of minutes. Hers will always be best… but this is a pretty good recipe too.
Large Ripe Avocado
Small Red Onion (Diced)
1/2 Tsp Chilli Powder
Handful of Fresh Chopped Coriander
Juice of 1 Small Lime
Salt & Pepper to Season
Once you’ve diced what you need to dice, peel the avocado – is that to obvious? Anyway, do peel and de-stone it. Telling if an avocado is ripe is pretty difficult, I say, if it’s soft to touch, use it, anther way to tell is to remove the brown stem at the top and if it comes away easily and is green underneath the fruit is ripe. If not and it’s brown underneath, it’s unripe… other than that you’re on your own.
Anyway, the method. Just mash it all together with a fork. Taste, maybe add ore lime or seasoning depending on your taste, then eat with toasted pitta or nachos.
You could add garlic to this recipe, fresh chilli (I use powdered because it provides a more even heat and I always have it in) or peppers. Considering the ridiculously easy method, it’s sooooooo tasty. It’s my new favourite afternoon snack.
