Guacamole Recipe

As with most of my recipes this is my version of the classic guacamole recipe.  I make this at least twice a week.

Apart from serving it with Mexican food I also serve it with bacon, eggs and potato rosti or fried potatoes for a weekend brunch.  In this case I leave out the chilli.  One of my children has been enjoying this since she was 9 months old in a wrap with sticks of pepper and cucumber on the side. It is best to leave out the chilli for children.  I always buy avocados every time I go to the veg shop as you’ll never find a ripe one when you need it, so work around your ripening avocados!!



  • 2 Ripe avocados
  • 1 Red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 1 Small clove of garlic roughly chopped
  • 1 dessertspoon chopped fresh coriander
  • Juice of ½ a lime (reserve other half and add if you like)
  • Salt and black pepper


Peel and remove stone from the avocados, put all ingredients except salt and pepper into a blender and whiz until smooth.

Taste and add more lime juice or salt and pepper if necessary.  Allow to stand for at least 15 minutes before serving so that the flavours can develop.
