Easy peasy guacamole

20 Nov

Avocadoes are in season right now in tropical Queensland, indeed some people have them falling off trees and are giving them away! They’re also cheap at the supermarket at the moment. To make guacamole, you need really ripe avocadoes, so if you see some on special, pick those, they’re ready to go straight away.

Easy guacamole - perfect for a party


1 soft, ripe avocado
2-3 Tbsp  sour cream
¼ onion, chopped finely
½ tsp minced garlic
Squirt of lemon juice
2-3 Tbsp salsa / chopped tomatoes
Chilli flakes
Salt & pepper

How to:

Cut the avocado in half, remove the seed, and scrape the avocado flesh into a bowl. Add the sour cream, lemon juice, onion and garlic and mix thoroughly. If you have some salsa lying around at home, add a couple of heaped spoonfuls of this into the guacamole. If you don’t have any salsa, you can chop up some tomatoes, or use diced tomatoes out of a can. If you don’t use salsa, you might want to go heavy on the chilli, salt & pepper, to give it extra flavour. If you use salsa, taste the mix before you add any further seasoning.

Stir it all up well and transfer to a serving bowl. Decorate the bowl with a dollop of sour cream, some grated parmesan or romano cheese and a sprinkling of chilli (anything red stands out really nicely against the green guac, instead of chilli try paprika, cayenne pepper or sumac). Serve with plain corn chips.
