Guacamole is easy to make, and a tasty dip for tortilla strips and to compliment fajitas and Tacos. There are tons of recipes for guacamole on the web. When making it we like it ‘chunky’ rather than whipped up like mashed potatoes. To do this, we begin by cutting the avocado in half length-wise and removing the seed. We then take a paring knife and make criss-cross cuts in the avocado meat without cutting through the skin. Then scoop out the diced avocado into a bowl.
Another thing – ingredients like avocados, limes and tomatoes vary in size and juiciness – so be flexible when making guacamole – taste it as you go along. It is hard to make a mistake – it’ll all be good!
