This authentic Guac recipe hails from Guatemala. Quick, easy and delicious, it can be made in under 10 minutes, whether chunky or smooth. With the simplest list of ingredients, it's a game-changer and may be the freshest-tasting Guacamole you have ever eaten.
Add about half of the lime juice and stir thoroughly. Leave to stand whilst you prepare the avocado. This will help remove the harshness from the onion.
Cut the avocados in half and remove the stones (pits), saving one of the stones for keeping the guacamole fresh.
Scoop the avocado flesh from the skins.
Chop into small pieces, or place in either a medium sized bowl or mortar and mash the avocado to the texture desired using a fork or a pestle.
Add the onion and the lime juice that it has been sitting in and also the finely chopped coriander. Season with salt and pepper.
Gently stir through and taste. Add more of the lime juice and seasoning until you are happy with the flavour.
Stir through a little olive oil (optional) to loosen if required.
To keep fresh before serving, push the reserved avocado stone into the centre of the guacamole and cover with clingfilm so that the clingfilm touches the surface to make airtight. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
Serve with tortilla chips, pitta or flatbread or use as an accompaniment with fajitas and other Mexican/South American food.
* Note: nutritional information is an estimate & may vary according to portion size/ingredient variants.If you prefer your guacamole smooth, simply place the ingredients in a blender (starting with the juice of half a lime) and blend until smooth. Taste and add extra seasoning and lime juice to your liking before stirring through ready to serve.
