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.

This makes a great chucky guacamole but when I made it, I found that it needed a lift, so I added a clove of garlic. This didn't make it taste really garlicky, just lifted the flavour and made it tasts a million times better than any you buy in the supermarket! It was so tasty four of us ate the lot, with tortilla chips, in about 20 mins!
