Guacamole was first made in Mexico by the Aztecs and it dates back to the 1500s.
It is the ideal dip when eating Mexican food or as a Summer finger food that you can enjoy with friends and family on game days and at fiestas.
- 2 medium tomatoes
- 3 ripe avocados
- 1 lime (juice)
- handful of coriander, leaves and stalks chopped, plus a few leaves, roughly chopped, to serve
- 1 small onion, finely chopped
- Tortilla chips to serve
- 1/2 teaspoon of salt
- Using a large knife, finely chop the tomatoes turning them into a pulp on a board, then tip into a bowl.
- Finely chop the onion, add to the bowl where you have the tomato previously prepared.
- Halve and stone the avocados (saving the stone) and using a spoon scoop out the flesh into the bowl with the tomato and onion.
- Cut the coriander and add it to the previous mix, covering it with the lime juice.
- Mix everything, until all ingredients are all combined.
- Add the salt and with a whisk, roughly mash everything together. Place the guacamole into a serving bowl, decorate it with the remaining coriander leaves.
- Sit a stone in the guacamole (this helps to stop it going brown) and serve with tortilla chips.
