Avocado Guacamole


2 large ripe avocados
1 small red onion, finely chopped
1 fresh red or green chili, seeded and very finely chopped
1 garlic clove, crushed
finely shredded rind of 1/2 lime and juice of 1 to 1-1/2 limes
8oz tomatoes, seeded and chopped
2 tbsp roughly chopped fresh coriander (cilantro)
1/2 to 1 tsp ground toasted cumin seeds
1 tbsp olive oil
ground black pepper
lime wedges and fresh coriander (cilantro) sprigs, to garnish
lightly salted corn chips, to serve (optional)


  1. Cut one of the avocados in half and lift out and discard the stone (pit). Scrape the flesh from both halves into a bowl and mash it roughly with a fork.
  2. Add the onion, chili, garlic, lime rind, tomatoes and coriander and stir well. Add the ground cumin seeds and pepper to taste, then stir in the olive oil.
  3. Halve and stone the remaining avocado. Dice the flesh and stir it into the guacamole.
  4. Squeeze in fresh lime juice to taste, mix well, then cover and leave to stand for 15 minutes so that the flavour develops. Serve with lime wedges and garnish with fresh coriander sprigs.

Makes 4 servings.
