The thing about me is, I love food and I quite like cooking but I’m a lazy cook and if it’s just for me, like it has been for pretty much 3 years of my university life, I’ll cook something big like chilli or lasagne and make it last 3 days or do something simple such as spicy chicken with some pasta and veg. So, there you have it, my cooking repertoire.
But, on that note I decided to try and improve my cooking skills because Luke ends up doing a lot of the cooking, because I’m crap and he’s not! It’s not fair on him and I probably need to learn some more skills in the kitchen!
Today, I bring you a recipe for homemade guacamole! Mexican food is one of my absolute favourites, it’s so tasty and quick. This guacamole is fresh, yummy and really easy to make. You could also make it a lot quicker by sticking it all in a food processor and just blitzing it but for this, I decided I should probably do some of the chopping myself.
You will need:
Depending on size, I used the pack of 4 from Tescos where they’re quite small
1 Large Tomato
Juice of a lime
A handful of Coriander
Clove of Garlic
Start with your avocado (don’t throw away the stones though!) and tomato and chop up really small and give it a bit of a mash together in a bowl. Chop up your onion quite finely too and pop that in. Then do the same with the chilli and squeeze in the lime juice. Crush your garlic and add that in too with a handful of coriander. Mix it all together and you’ve got chunky guacamole. So easy. I blitzed mine with a hand blender after I took these photos to make it easier to dip tortilla chips in but you can leave it chunky if you prefer!
This is totally fresh and healthy so it won’t last forever unfortunately. A handy tip to stop it going brown is to leave the stones in whilst it’s in the fridge. It makes you think how many preservatives must be in the shop bought kind which lasts for weeks!
