Avocado Guacamole Recipe

I love avocados, one of my favourite quick recipes I make with them is guacamole. This is really quick and easy, a straight forward avocado guacamole recipe that takes less than 15 minutes to prepare. The hardest part is pealing the avocados.

Be sure to use ripe avocados to use, I normally go for ones that are a bit softer but not too soft either. If they are a rock hard, they probably aren’t ripe and will be bitter if you use them.

Guacamole goes great with Mexican food such as Chicken Fajitas or used as a dip with Nachos. You can also spread them onto rice cakes for a healthy snack. Add in some chillies to the recipe below for an extra kick!

You can store it in the fridge in a sealed container for up to 2 days.




Ingredients:

  • 4 x Medium Sized Avocados – This will be enough to serve 4 – 5 people.
  • 1 x Tomato
  • 1 x Lemon – You can use more than one lemon if you like a zingy flavour.
  • Chillies – This is optional, be careful not to make it too spicy!

Instructions:

  1. Chop Avocados into chunks and remove the skin (sometimes, its easier to cut them in half, discard the rock and spoon it out
  2. Chop tomato into chunks
  3. Squeeze the lemon juice
  4. Add all ingredients to a food processor and blend until you get the correct consistency. There should be no lumpy bits and should form a thick smooth paste.
    1. If the mixture is too dry, you can add in another tomato or more lemon juice
  5. Chill in the fridge for 15 minutes before serving
