Guacamole, a splash of colours

I love guacamole. It's so simple and yet so full of nutrients and colours. Thanks to the lovely avocado, this dish is full of vitamins and minerals, it's antioxidant, good for the diabetics, and it helps reduce cholesterol. The combination of flavours will please your taste buds and leave you asking for more. You can make it as hot as you want, it depends on whether you want chilli in it or not.


1 ripe avocado, reserve the pit

1 ripe tomato

1/2 onion

1 chilli

1/2 bunch fresh coriander

the juice of 1/2 lime


olive oil

mexican tortillas to serve


Chop all the ingredients very finely, add the salt, lime juice and olive oil and mix. Place the avocado pit in the centre of the guacamole and leave until you are ready to serve, this helps prevent the avocado from getting black.

Serve with triangles of fried mexican tortillas, or totopos (please don't use Doritos) To do this, simply cut your tortillas in triangles and deep fry in oil, dry on kitchen paper. You can serve this as a light lunch, or as delicious starter. You won't be dissapointed. Viva Mexico!
