  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.

Amazing guacamole! Made this for my family and we all loved it. I would 100% recommend this. It’s so fresh and healthy, not like the rubbish you buy in the supermarkets.

Excellent recipe, I used a few cherry tomatoes and missed out the red onion. Worked really well!

A lovely recipe to get you started. If you're like me and crave an extra chunky Guac, then here is a recipe that I created. 2 large Avo - spoon out chunks and lightly mash with fork so that you still have pieces. 1 medium red onion - chop these fairly small but not diced. 2 red chilli - deseed, cut into quarters length ways and chop to desired size. Half an orange and half a yellow sweet bell pepper - cut into squares the size of a 10p coin. 1 large lime - squeeze juice. Sea salt Cracked Black pepper 1 - 2 teaspoons of smokey paprika A good guzzle of the best olive oil you have. Combine everything and enjoy with toasted ciabatta. Add a fillet of salmon to 1up to a main meal. Play around with the amount of season, spice and chilli. Garlic could also be a lovely addition. Happy Guaccing

Delicious dip, nice and fresh, everyone enjoyed it at the dinner party :) I added a clove of garlic too. I imagine it would be also nice like a spread on the toast.

Yes, this was the best ever. Very easy and quick to do and delicious. Didn't do the stone thing just covered in cling film and it was fine when we ate it two days later. Definitely will do again

Could this be frozen at all? I’m beginning meal prep and thought this would be nice to make and divide into portioned Tupperware trays with chilli, then defrosting and microwaving (or microwaving from frozen) when ready. Thanks!

Thanks for your question. As a general rule, we'd avoid freezing this recipe and it's not really designed to be heated. However, if you like a little taste of guacamole and don't mind that the texture will be somewhat compromised then we'd say, go for it!
