Recipe #2: Guacamole

A year ago I would have said I didn't like avocados, let alone want to make a dip and devour a whole packet of crisps and two avocados in one sitting. Only a couple minutes prep for this delicious Mexican treat that isn't too bad for the waistline.

  • 1 ripe avocados
  • A handful of coriander leaves (optional)
  • 1 small red onion
  • Baby tomatoes
  • Juice of half a lime (optional)

Step one: Chop up your tomatoes and finely dice your onion.

Step two: Remove the skin and stone of the avocados and roughly mash in a bowl. This is the way I cut and remove the flesh of an avocado but go with whatever you find easier. Add your onion and tomatoes (coriander leaves if you're using them).

Step three: Squeeze your lime (optional) and add salt and pepper to taste. In this recipe I haven't used salt as the tortilla crisps are quite salty.

This portion would be enough for me as quite a large snack during the day but just double up on ingredients. The recipe is subject to preference, I absolutely love onion so I add lots of onion and I like my guacamole quite chunky so I don't mash the avocado too much. I cannot stand coriander so I purposely don't allow it anywhere near my avocado heaven!

I buy the Morrisons own tortilla crisps and they are perfect, sometimes a bit touch and go as to the amount of salt but most of the time you get lucky and they are amazing!
