Continuing with my love of Mexican food, I’m happy to pass along this recipe for one of my all time favourite snacks: Guacamole. I get asked to make this a lot, and it always goes down well at a picnic or barbecue or whatever. I’m yet to meet anyone who can resist a big dollop perched atop a crisp corn chip, even theΒ few strange typesΒ who pretend they don’t like avocado. I mean, come on guys, you’re not fooling anyone except yourself. Get into it!

This guacamole is super fresh, super easy and best of all, super delicious with a nice punch of chilli. Give it a go sometime soon, and I promise you won’t be disappointed. You’ll need:

2 perfectly ripe avocados
2 roma tomatoes, de-seeded and chopped
1 long red chilli, de-seeded and finely chopped
1/4 red onion, finely chopped
2 tbsp finely chopped coriander
Juice of 1 lemon
Sea salt and cracked black pepper

Scoop the avocado flesh into a bowl and give it a bit of a mash with a fork, add the chopped tomato, onion, chilli and coriander, season well with salt and pepper and finish with lemon juice. Give it all a final mix, top with a sprig of coriander and serve with corn chips.

And there you have it. Couldn’t be easier, right?
