Guacamole, is an avocado-based sauce that originated with the Aztecs in Mexico. In addition to its use in modern Mexican cuisine it has also become part of Australian cuisine as a dip, condiment and salad ingredient. It is traditionally made by mashing ripe avocados with sea salt. Some recipes call for tomato, onion, lime juice, chilli, yoghurt and/or additional seasonings.
- Halve the avocados, remove the seed and using a spoon scoop the flesh into a bowl. Add chilli, coriander and a little onion.
- Mash together with a fork. Add tomato and lime juice and season with salt. Gently fold through.
- Guacamole should be made just before serving. Returning the seed of the avocado to the mixture will help keep the guacamole green.
