Our Guacamole Recipe Favourites: The 4 Best May 5, 2018
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.
- 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)
- Put a quarter of the onion and half the chilli and salt in a pestle and mortar and mash to a rough paste.
- 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.
- Stir in the rest of the lime juice and chillies, coriander, red onion and tomato.
- Season with plenty of black pepper and salt (only if more salt is needed)
- Serve with tortilla chips.
