Guacamole

Guac you gonna do about it?

I love avocados and get very excited when they come into season, I would happily eat them with every meal, but guacamole is my favourite way to have them.

I will be honest; I am eating guacamole with almost every meal at the moment. I may be adding a healthy dose of jalapeno so that it is too spicy for everyone else. I didn’t say I was doing that; I might be doing it. It could be that the jalapenos are extra spicy. 

Back to the point

I have two ways to make guacamole, both are easy but give two different textures, so it is a case of which you prefer. If you are making guacamole for the kids to enjoy you can leave the chilli out of the recipe. This Guacamole recipe is suitable for those eating Primal, Paleo, and Clean. With minor modifications it is also kid-friendly.

Guacamole recipe

Ingredients

  • 2 avocados
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 1 jalapeno chilli (optional)
  • 1 tbsp. lemon juice

Take your avocados, cut them in half, remove the stones, and then scoop out the flesh

This is where you get to choose.

Option 1 Chunky

For a more chunky texture, I use a food processor to finely mince the chilli, pulse the onion then add the avocado with lemon juice and pulse again, this gives a part chunky part smooth texture that is great as a dip or addition to something spicy.

Option 2 Smooth

For a smoother texture, I like to finely mince the chilli and onion together into a paste, add the avocado and lemon juice and blend until you get a smooth texture.

If you are making guacamole without a food processor, it is down to you how finely you want to chop your ingredients.

The result should still be great tasting guacamole
