Guacamole is delicious, I love it in sandwiches, as a dipping sauce, on bread or with crunchy salty Mexican corn chips!!!
It is incredibly easy to make but sometimes people think otherwise – mistake!
The only secret is to use the avocado at the right time – ripe enough to be soft but not yet brown.
If you have invited friends over, make a lot of it by just doubling the quantities because usually people love it!
2 Soft Avocados
1 Red Onion
1 Tomato (or a few cherry tomatoes)
Some people add herbs like parsley or coriander; I am not a big fan of this version but it’s totally up to you. I would add just some chives to make it more colourful because it will not alter the taste!
Mash your avocados with a fork and make them into a green purée – do not use a blender as it might warm the avocados and turn them brownish.
Chop the red onion and the tomato in very small pieces – you don’t have to add it all, just check if you prefer it with fewer or more bits.
When you have added all the bits, pour in some of the lime juice, sprinkle paprika and salt and stir it – you are done!!!
Serve it as a dipping sauce for chips or use it inside sandwiches or on top of a canapè.
Tip: If you prepare it in advance, add a bit more lime juice and cover it – sealed it if you can – as the air might make it turn dark and it will not look good, even if it will still taste incredibly fine!
Keep it in the fridge.
