    Holy Guacamole…

    If you’re looking for a guacamole recipe that’s a little bit different, we’ve got four. To celebrate Cinco de Mayo this year, Chefs Mimi and Lizzie put their heads together to create the 4 best guacamole recipes.

    From a chunky classic to a bacon showstopper, we’ve got a guacamole recipe for every occasion. Give one of these guacamole recipes a go – and try something a little bit different.

    classic guacamole recipe

    The Best Guacamole Recipe


    • ½ red onion, very finely chopped
    • 1-2 serrano chillies or other fresh green chillies, finely chopped
    • 1-2 tsp Maldon salt
    • 3 ripe Hass avocados
    • Juice of 1-2 limes
    • A small handful fresh coriander, chopped (I think this is optional as I left this out and the taste was still delicious)


    1. Put a quarter of the onion and half the chilli and salt in a pestle and mortar and mash to a rough paste.
    2. Cut open the avocados, remove the stones and scoop out the flesh into the pestle (or into a large bowl if your pestle is small). Roughly mash the flesh with a fork, adding half the lime juice as you go.
    3. Stir in the rest of the lime juice and chillies, coriander, red onion and tomato.
    4. Season with plenty of black pepper and salt (only if more salt is needed)
    5. Serve with tortilla chips.

    • 3 green onions, sliced
    • 1/4 cup- 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
    • 1/2 roma tomato, diced


    1. Spoon avocados into a medium bowl and mash together with a fork, leaving as chunky as you’d like.
