Next time when you have a potluck dinner or family gathering, bring this super delicious dip. This guacamole not only tastes extremely yummy, but is also very easy to make. You don’t even need a food processor! So what are you waiting for? Get chopping!
Side Note: Avocados are incredibly nutritious. They are an excellent source of potassium (they contain more K than bananas), omega-3 fatty acids, lutein and fiber. This super fruit has a wide range of health benefits. Among other things, it facilitates the absorption of nutrients from other plant foods; reduces cancer risk; lowers cholesterol levels; and supports eye- and heart health. Don’t be fooled by their high fat content, eating avocados even promotes weight loss.
- ½ a small red onion
- 1 red chilli pepper (or 2 for a little extra kick)
- 2 ripe avocados
- 1 bunch of fresh coriander
- 1 medium-sized tomato or 4 cherry tomatoes
- 1 garlic clove (optional)
- 1 lime
- extra virgin olive oil
- sea salt
- freshly ground black pepper
- red pepper flakes (optional)
- Peel and dice the onion and then prep the red chili pepper by cutting it in quarters; removing the seeds and pith inside; and dicing the quarters.
- Destone the avocados and scoop out their creamy flesh.
- Combine the three ingredients on a large cutting board and chop them until they are well-combined.
- Chop the coriander leaves into small pieces; dice the tomato; and mince the garlic clove.
- Add the remaining 3 ingredients to the avocado mixture and chop them all together until they are fine and well-combined.
- Add the juice of 1 lime and 1 tbsp of oil, then season to taste with salt, pepper, lime juice and red pepper flakes. Have fun with it!
- I like my guacamole chilled, so I always put it in the fridge before serving it.
Serving Suggestion: Serve with corn chips or use dip as a sandwich spread on toasted whole-wheat bread.
