Mexico: Guacamole

Preparation time: 10 minutes + 3 hours at rest in the fridge
Difficulty: easy

Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 1 avocado
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • chopped cilantro ( or parsley )
  • 1 onion
  • 1 chopped “Chile Serrano” ( if you don’t find it, take a very spicy hot pepper)
  • ¼ cup of extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper as needed


Cut the avocado into two halves, take away the stone and the flesh from them ( with a teaspoon or a knife if the fruit isn’t perfectly ripe), paying attention not to damage the peel, that you can use to serve the sauce.
In a bowl mix the avocado flesh with lemon and oil. Mash it with a fork. Add the cilantro ( or parsley), the chopped onion and chile terrano ( if you prefer it less hot, take the seeds away) and mix.Try it and season with salt and pepper as you like. Guacamole is ready to be tasted, spread on a tortilla or with your salad.

A high-class touch..

If you have been careful and you haven’t damaged the peel, serve the sauce in the avocado coat.
