Best-ever Guacamole Recipe

I have been making guacamole for years, but I recently went on an incredible trip to Mexico where I tried some amazing variations (including one with crickets in – don’t worry, I won’t put you through that). Adding a few extras to this simple, good-fat-rich staple takes it up a notch, big time!

Serves

2-3

Ingredients

  • 2 very ripe avocados
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 large clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 small red chilli (chile), finely chopped
  • 1 red onion, very finely chopped
  • 150g (5¼oz) pitted green olives, roughly chopped
  • 15g (½oz) coriander (cilantro) leaves, roughly chopped
  • Sea salt

Method

1. Scoop all the avocado flesh into a bowl and mash well with a fork. It doesn’t have to be completely smooth, as a bit of texture is great here.

2. Add the lime juice, oil, garlic, chilli (chile), onion, olives and coriander (cilantro), with a generous pinch of salt, and mix well.
