Method

  1. Use a large knife to pulverise 1 large ripe tomato to a pulp on a board, then tip into a bowl.

  2. Halve and stone the 3 avocados (saving a stone) and use a spoon to scoop out the flesh into the bowl with the tomato.

  3. Tip the juice of 1 large lime, a handful of roughly chopped coriander, 1 finely chopped small red onion and 1 deseeded and finely chopped red or green chilli into the bowl, then season with salt and pepper.

  4. 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.

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!

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!

delicious. easy to make, i accidentally pulverised it more than it should have been so it wasn't as chunky but still really fresh
