There is no Mexican fiesta without guacamole…or at least this is what us (non-Mexicans) think. Mexican or not, we love guacamole.
This is a very simple recipe (only 5 ingredients), takes minutes to make and it is a lot tastier than store-bought guacamole.
Serve it as an appetizer or a nutritious snack anytime. If you are not a fan of hot peppers skip the jalapeño. Enjoy with tortilla chips or crudites – red pepper slices and carrot sticks work great.
- 4 ripe avocados
- 1 lime, juiced
- 1 tomato, chopped
- 2 Tbsp/30 grams red onion or shallot, finely chopped
- 1/4 cup/10 grams cilantro, chopped
- 1 jalapeño pepper optional
In a medium bowl, gently mash avocados with a fork (keep it chunky). Add the lime juice and the rest of the ingredients. Mix gently and season with salt and pepper.
