Guacamole recipe

Yummy guacamole is a great sauce to use as dip or add a Mexican touch to your dishes. And with this quick, simple recipe you can easily make it at home. Make sure the avocados are really ripe, but if they are hard, place in a brown paper bag with a ripe banana or apple to speed the process. Avocados should be ripened in an airy spot, rather than kept in the fridge. Don’t make guacamole more than three hours in advance or it will discolour. However, drizzling lemon or lime juice over it and wrapping in clingfilm may delay discolouring.

Preparation time: 10 minutes
Serves 6

2 ripe avocados
juice 2 limes
1 small red onion, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, crushed
1tsp Tabasco sauce
2 large ripe tomatoes, peeled, deseeded and chopped
1tbsp chopped fresh coriander leaves

1 Halve both the avocados, remove the stones and scrape the flesh into a bowl. Add the lime juice and mash the avocados with the back of a fork so you get a slightly chunky texture. Stir in the rest of the ingredients and season well with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
2 Cover the surface of the guacamole with clingfilm to prevent discolouration and then store in the fridge until ready to serve.
