Ignore the fat content, avocado is super food! Guacamole is easy to make and is a great accompaniment to any fajita or chilli.


  • Prepare all ingredients apart from the avocado, placing them in a large bowl.
  • To get the most out of your Avocado:
    • Cut it in half parallel to the length of the avocado (bringing your knife in a circle around the stone). Then twist the two halves. This will split the avocado in half, one side left with the stone.
    • Twist the stone to remove. I do this by driving the blade of a chefs knife into the stone (it's relatively soft), then twisting.
    • For each half, make legthways cuts through the flesh, without going through the skin.
    • Extract the slices using a spoon to follow inside the skin of the avocado.
  • Add avocado to the bowl and without delay begin mashing with a sturdy fork or gently with a potato masher. You want to get the lime juice in contact with the avocado as quickly as possible, otherwise it'll brown.
  • Give it a good stir then transfer to a serving dish


  • Guacamole is something that isn't worth making in advance, it tuns brown within an hour so.
  • More lime juice will slow the browning, but can make the guacamole too tangy.
