Guacamole – the dip with more than 500 years!

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.

Ingredients:

  • 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

Preparation:

  1. Using a large knife, finely chop the tomatoes turning them into a pulp on a board, then tip into a bowl.
  2. Finely chop the onion, add to the bowl where you have the tomato previously prepared.
  3. Halve and stone the avocados (saving the stone) and using a spoon scoop out the flesh into the bowl with the tomato and onion.
  4. Cut the coriander and add it to the previous mix, covering it with the lime juice.
  5. Mix everything, until all ingredients are all combined.
  6. 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.
  7. Sit a stone in the guacamole (this helps to stop it going brown) and serve with tortilla chips.
