Super chunky guacamole!
Now. I am about to make a fairly bold claim and admit that, whilst I love most food and flavours (particularly spicy stuff), Mexican is possibly my favourite cuisine of all time. It’s spicy, fresh and creamy; packed with colours, texture and a myriad of flavours. It’s so bold and each dish seems to be filled with depth and oodles of different tastes to tickle the palette. Also, as avid lime, avocado and cheese fan there really wasn’t any doubt that Mexican would be for me. One staple of a Mexican themed meal, in my humble opinion, has to be freshly made, super chunky guacamole. It’s like a salad and garnish all in one and just livens up your plate. It also helps to add a certain coolness to the spices (unless like me you like to pop chilli peppers in the mix…).
This is my ridiculously easy guacamole recipe that’ll do beautifully for about four people. Remember; you want to use lovely ripe avocados so they’re nice and easy to work with!
1 sweet pointed pepper
½ red onion
2 green chilli peppers (optional!)
The juice of half a lime and half a lemon
Salt and pepper to taste
Spoon the flesh out of the avocados and, using a fork or potato masher, begin to mush up the avocado – not too much though, you still want some lovely chunks in the mix.
Squeeze the lemon and lime juice onto the avocado.
De-seed the tomatoes and peppers and, along with the onion, dice up into nice smallish pieces and stir into the avocado.
Season to taste and enjoy!
