Ingredients (makes one portion per avocado)
1 ripe avocado
1 1/2 tbsp lemon / lime juice
1 diced medium red onion
1 diced medium tomato
1 handful fresh herbs (eg coriander, chives)
jalapenos / chilli sauce
diced cooked chicken
diced hard boiled egg
granary bread / bruschetta
- Halve the avocado, remove the stone and scoop the pulp into a bowl.
- Add the lime / lemon juice and salt and mash until most of the pulp as gone smooth but there are still chunks.
- Stir in the diced onion and tomato. If you don't have red onions you can use spring onions (otherwise known as scallions / salad onions). If you prefer really smooth guacamole it's at this point you can blend it instead of stirring everything in.
- Add your optional extras. I don't like coriander so I stir in other Mediterranean herbs instead. I also like my guacamole to have a little kick so I usually add a drop of Nando's Extra Hot Piri Piri sauce (other hot sauces are also okay lol) but only a drop because it goes a long way. If you are making this for people who don't like chilli you can leave out the hot sauce and just garnish your helping with jalapenos instead.
