Guacamole My Way

With the words “My Way” I don’t pretend having invented this version of guacamole. It’s simply a mixture of what I read in different recipes and what I added or modified over the years, adapting it to my taste buds. Apart from the ingredients the texture is also my favourite one, e.i. roughly crushed with a fork, but not mixed. After several encounters with Mexicans outraged at the “fancy”, “overloaded” “falsified” Western avocado sauces and claiming the real guacamole is nothing but avocado, salt and lime juice, somehow I feel I should add “My Way”, thus proving I don’t pretend mine being the traditional recipe.

Preparation: 15 minutes+ 1 hour in the fridge


1 avocado

juice from 1/2 small lime

1/2 flat teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon dried ground coriander

1 teaspoon dried ground cumin

1 small red onion

1 small tomato

1 tablespoon tabasco

Spoon out the avocado flesh. Put it into a bowl and squash roughly with a fork.

Sprinkle with the lime juice and stir.

Chop the tomato into small cubes.

Peel and chop the onion.

Add everything to the avocado, stir well and put into the fridge for at least one hour.

Serve with crackers, nachos or as a sauce for grilled chicken.
