My dear friend Martina travelled to Mexico and she brought me the best souvenir she could have, a genuine Mexican recipe for guacamole! It’s so easy to make and so tasty that you will never ever buy ready-made guacamole again. Let’s do this!
2 ripe avocados
1 ripe tomato
1 small onion (or ½ big one)
Juice of ½ lime
Cut the avocados in half vertically, mind the bone inside, you will have to go all around the avocado with your knife. Twist the two halves in opposite directions and separate them.
To scoop the bone off easily stab it with the blade of the knife and slide it out.
With a tablespoon scoop all the avocado meat on to a plate. Do the same with all the halves. Once you have all the avocado on a plate crush it down with a fork until you get a smooth paste.
Now cut the tomato and onion, dice them quite small and mix them with the avocado.
Add the juice of 1/2 lime (that will prevent the browning of the avocado as well as giving it nice taste) drizzle oil and add salt and pepper.
Mix well and add Tabasco sauce to taste. Mix well again and you’ve got your guacamole ready!
Serve it with nachos (Doritos), toast, crackers or whatever you want, you can even use it as salad dressing.
Today I am having it on toast with my Cherry tomato and feta cheese salad. Delicious!
It’s said that putting the bone of the avocado in centre of the guacamole in the serving bowl will keep the green colour of your guacamole for longer. Not sure if it’s true but it looks nice!
