You just can’t beat a good guacamole, this recipe takes minutes tastes amazing and will have your friends green with envy! INGREDIENTS Enough for 1 bowl of guacamole Cooking time -15 minutes 2 large ripe avacado’s 1 tomato ½ small red onion, handful of coriander 2 limes, juiced 2 tblsp olive oil ½ tsp salt ground pepper METHOD Destone the avacados, I find it easier if you score the flesh in a criss cross style then scoop out, you end up with chunks.
