I absolutely hate shop bought guacamole. It’s up there with shop bought coleslaw. I can’t believe people actually think they’re being exotic buying it. They obviously don’t realise how easy it is to make and just how much better it is when you’re done it yourself. There are many schools of thought as to what you do and don’t put into it, personally I prefer mine with a tiny hit of chilli, which is why I’ve included one in the recipe but obviously you can omit it if you don’t agree. Olé!


2 ripe avocados (peeled and mashed)
2 1/2 tablespoons lime juice
3 spring onions (finely chopped)
1/4 cup fresh coriander (finely chopped)
1 jalapeno chilli (seeded and finely chopped)
1 medium tomato (seeded and finely chopped)
salt & pepper

Combine all the ingredients together and stir well. That’s it!!!
To store: put some plastic wrap directly on top of the mixture. It’ll stop it discolouring.

Always nice with mexican food obviously, but nice with burgers, fish or even with a whole packet of Kettle Chips, or Pringles if you’re a bit common.
