avocado → guacamole

The road from avocado → guacamole can be a winding long one, or a very short one! I like the quick route, nice and simple. There are many variations on this theme, with onions and tomatoes amongst other things added to the mix. But this super simple guacamole is great with my savoury pancakes & refried beans, both of which use coriander. 


  • 1 avocado
  • 2 green chillies
  • 1 lime
  • fresh coriander leaves


  1. Skewer your chillies and hold them over an open gas flame to char them, they will pop and sing.

  2. Get all the flesh of the avocado into a bowl, squeeze your lime juice over it, cut up your chillies which scissors over the bowl, I use the seeds too. Then mash all these lovely ingredients together.

  3. Stir in some freshly cut coriander and your ready to serve. 


*I keep the avocado stone in the guacamole as it stops the avocado from turning brown.
