A good guacamole should be a medley of flavours and textures – hot jalapenos, spicy cilantro leaves, cool tomatoes, creamy avocados, crunchy onions, and sour limes. It is delicious as a snack with corn chips or as a side dish for a Mexican meal.


[TIP: Guacamole should have a slightly rough texture – make sure not to whip it too smooth!]





(makes 1 cup)


Salad Ingredients:

4 ripe medium avocados

4 Tbsp onion, finely diced

1 firm medium tomato, deseeded and finely diced

1 fresh jalapeno chilli pepper, finely diced (with seeds)

4 Tbsp cilantro/coriander leaves, chopped

2 Tbsp fresh lime juice (you can add more, if necessary)

1/2 – 1 tsp salt (to taste)



  1. Chop the onion, tomato, jalapeno chilli pepper and cilantro and set aside.
  2. Juice the lime and set aside.
  3. Cut the avocados in half, remove the stone, and scoop the avocado out of the skin. Roughly mash the avocado in a medium-sized bowl.
  4. Add all the other ingredients and carefully fold in (you want to keep the avocado slightly textured, not whipped smooth).
  5. Taste and adjust any of the ingredients according to your taste.
  6. Refrigerate and serve cold with corn chips or raw vegetable crudites.
