Holy Guacamole

May

28

I love guacamole and once you have made it from scratch you will never want to buy the supermarket brand again, which is probably good as a lot of mass produced brands only use a small amount of avocado combined with lots of oil and fats.

Guacamole is generally quite good for you as it contains nutrients, vitamins (especially vitamins A, E & K) and no cholesterol, but bear in mind it should be eaten in moderation as it’s very high in calories, a single avocado has 322 calories.

But as long as you’re not eating it by the bucket load you are fine to indulge in this tasty dip every now and then. My guacamole recipe takes no longer than 15 minutes to make all you have to do is:

  • Mash two ripe medium avocados
  • Mix in a teaspoon of fresh or dried crushed red chilies, a chopped medium red onion, a couple of chopped vine tomatoes, you can use normal tomatoes, but I prefer vine
  • Add a good squeeze of lime juice
  • Give it all a good mix
  • Garnish with fresh coriander
  • Eat immediately
