Method

  1. Use a large knife to pulverise the tomato to a pulp on a board, then tip into a bowl. Halve and stone the avocados (saving a stone) and use a spoon to scoop out the flesh into the bowl with the tomato.
  2. Tip all the other ingredients into the bowl, then season with salt and pepper. Use a whisk to roughly mash everything together. If not serving straight away, sit a stone in the guacamole (this helps to stop it going brown), cover with cling film and chill until needed. Scatter with the coriander, if using, then serve with tortilla chips or spicy wedges and sour cream.

I make this often. The lime and the coriander are wonderful. I use this recipes when making fish tacos.

I loved this recipe! I blitzed it in the food processor just because I prefer a smoother guac but the flavours were lovely. Defo to be made again & again!

So easy to make...made this yesterday to go with fajitas and it was fantastic. You can taste all the lovely flavours in there. A million times better than shop bought guacamole!

Just eating this now and really enjoying it! First time I have made my own Guacamole and am never going back to the supermarket option :) Added the garlic as suggested because I love garlic and only used half the onion = spot on.

Fabulously easy to make and extremely delicious. The only downside is I can's stop eating it!

I tried it with my friends and they all loved it!! I tried lemon juice and wasabi instead of pepper and it was really refreshing :)

Just made this as I got some cheap avocadoes.
Very tasty, used cherry toms and spring onions, the mix of crunchy onion and smooth avocado is great- using it to top my bbq'd burger :)

Just goes to show you don't need the natural yogurt and cream that some shop bought guacamole's use!!

I'm currently living in Japan, and contrary to popular belief it is VERY hard to eat healthy here. This recipe is exactly what I needed to add some healthy pizazz to my meal, and luckily all the ingredients were available.

delicious - the family demolished it in minutes. Used a spring onion instead of the suggested red onion, but stuck to the recipe apart from that.

Well, we had it with garlic today and I have to say it's very nice too. We just put in half a clove as we only had one avocado left and it was delicious, though the garlic-less version does taste more fresh and zingy. So bottom line, if you like garlic, do it with garlic, if you don't, do it without, you can't go wrong either way as this recipe is pretty great! We used it as a pizza dip today and it is probably the healthiest thing I've ever dunked my pizza crust into. Thanks Barney!

We made this last night to go with some fajitas and it was absolutely brilliant. We declared we are going to make this every day from now on and never buy ready made again! We actually made it in a food processor, blitzing the herbs and chili first, then the tomato, the avocado, and seasoning and lime last. It took about 3 minutes to make! Will try it again with garlic and let you guys know the results.
