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.

Personally, I love to add one or two chopped hard boiled eggs --- depends on the quantity of guacamole you're making of course. And a point about using cling film to preserve --- don't just cover the bowl, but place the cling film directly on top of the mashed guacamole so there are no air pockets. It will keep much longer this way without turning brown.

This was sooooo yummy! I'm not actually a massive fan of guacamole but this was delicious and so fresh. I used a hand held blender to mix everything as I wasn't sure how to 'pulverise' the tomatoes and it turned out great. Also used the juice of half a lime only and I think that was enough. Think I'll be making this regularly as heathy dip!

Delicious, almost on par to a guacamole we had in Texas many years ago.

I'm not buying guacamole again! Even the premium one I usually buy is like baby food compared to this! Really fresh tasting. Not sure how I was meant to "pulverise" the tomato, I just chopped it into fine dice. My finished guacamole had the consistency of a salsa. The final flavour (like most things) will depend on the quality of the ingredients. I was lucky to have organic avocado, tomatoes & red onion in my vegbox.

Quite surprised this recipe has received such a good rating. I love avocados and guacamole but I found that it tasted quite average and I've made better guacamole in the past without even using a recipe. It was okay but certainly nothing special for me.

This has a lovely kick to it. I just use a frozen chilli cube.

Great taste and super easy! Leaving the stone in really works! Make sure the avocados are ripe.

So fresh and delicious. Great with tortilla chips and crudites. It was so flavoursome that I forgot that there was no garlic in it!

Made the guacomole to go with the chilli bean recipe as suggested. If I was to make it again I would use less lime juice which I thought prevaded a litlle too strongly. Okay but not amazing.

Just finished gobbling this up and it was delicious! Way better than shop bought and worth the effort. We didn't have any red onion so we used a spring onion and it worked just as well!
