Good Mexican restaurants prepare guacamole tableside gently crushing all the ingredients in a giant pestle and mortar. Guacamole is not a dip to be whizzed into mush in a food processor, it should be harmonious but chunky. Fresh jalapeño chillies are available in most supermarkets but just substitute regular green chillies if you can’t find them.



  • red onion ¼, finely chopped
  • garlic ½, crushed
  • fresh jalapeño chillies 1-2 (depending on your heat preference), finely chopped
  • limes 2, juiced
  • sea salt 1 tsp
  • vine tomatoes 2 small, diced
  • avocados 3 ripe, cut into large chunks
  • coriander a handful of leaves, finely chopped
  • plain tortilla chips to serve


  • Step 1

    Put the onion, garlic, chillies and lime juice in a large wide bowl, add the salt and leave for 5 minutes.

  • Step 2

    Add the rest of the ingredients and use a fork to gently crush together leaving enough chunky avocado so you have a bit of bite in the finished guacamole. Serve with plain tortilla chips for scooping.
