The Best Guacamole Recipe

Simply the best guacamole ever - once you make this you will never buy it ready made from a supermarket again. This recipe by Thomasina Miers from her book 'Mexican Food Made Simple' takes minutes to make and tastes amazing.


Flavours of lime and chilli with tomato, red onion are perfectly balanced.

Yield: 2-4

How to make the perfect Guacamole

prep time: 10 minscook time: total time: 10 mins


1/2 a small red onion - very finely chopped
1/2 a red chilli - deseeded and finely chopped
a good pinch of Maldon sea salt
1 nice ripe Hass avocado
1/2 a lime - juice only
1/4 red bell pepper - deseeded and diced
1-2 ripe tomatoes, peeled, deseeded and chopped
a small handful fresh coriander - chopped
a pinch of black pepper to season


Put a quarter of the onion and half the chilli along with a few chopped stalks from the coriander and just a pinch of salt in a pestle and mortar and mash to a rough paste.

Cut open the avocados, remove the stones and scoop out the flesh into the pestle (or into a large bowl if your pestle is small).

Roughly mash the flesh with a fork, adding half the lime juice as you go.

Stir in the rest of the lime juice and chillies, chopped coriander, red onion and tomato.

Season with plenty of black pepper and more salt if you think it needs it.  If it doesn’t taste delicious by this stage, you can add more lime juice or coriander.

Serve with tortilla chips.
