Have you ever been to a restaurant and felt like you have eaten 17 avocados worth of guacamole because it is just. that. good? You are not alone! Well, now you can make the ultimate guacamole yourself. Add it to tacos, scoop it up with tortilla chips, dip a carrot in to it or just eat it with a spoon (no shame).
My personal favourite way to eat guacamole is with either with tortilla chips or with poached eggs for breakfast. Heaven! There is just something about starting the day with guacamole that makes the day better. But, when the mid afternoon munchies hit, then some guac and tortilla chips definitely hits the spot.

I should have started this by saying this is MY ultimate guacamole recipe. Anyone that is a fan of avocados has their own way of making this little bit of food heaven, but the basics are usually the same. Some don’t put tomatoes in theirs, some think garlic is not needed and others think it is not guacamole unless it has bacon bits in it.
For me, this is the perfect combination of flavours and textures. I don’t like my guacamole too smooth, which is why I like the tomatoes in it, to add some texture. We all make it our own way and that’s what makes guacamole so special!
Does picking an avocado drive you nuts? Can’t ever find a ripe one? Confused about how to keep avocados fresh as well? Take a look at my post on how to keep avocados fresh and how to choose the perfect avocado.
Guacamole is probably the best thing to do with an avocado and if you are new to avocado eating (what have you been doing with your whole life?) then this is a great place to start. Make yourself a bowl and sit down with some tortilla chips and relax, because life is always better with guacamole.
Speaking of tortilla chips, have you heard of Well&Truly Tortilla Chips before? They contain 40% less fat than the average tortilla, are made in a dedicated, certified gluten free facility and have been sold in Tesco stores nationwide since Monday 15th February. With some gluten free products you can really taste the difference, and not in a good way, but the Well&Truly Tortilla Chips still have a great crunch and that salty taste we all love. They are a great gluten free alternative and make a good on the go snack too.
Even better news, Well&Truly are giving HHH readers a 15% discount on a case of tortilla chips. Just head to the shop on their website and use the coupon HHH15.
Ingredients – Serves 2:
– 1 medium avocado, mashed
– 1 small tomato, finely diced
– A quarter of a small red onion, finely diced
– 2 tbsp coriander (cilantro), chopped
– 1 garlic clove, crushed
– Juice of half a lime
– Half a tsp of chopped red chilli (more or less depending how spicy you like it)
– A pinch of sea salt and black pepper
1) Mix all the ingredients together and serve immediately. The lime juice will stop the guacamole from browning for a while, but it is better when eaten straight away.
