In a cooking blog that is meant to discover and inspire, it might seem a little odd to put up a guacamole recipe. According to Google, there are 2.380 million of the recipes out there and so it is safe to say that we don’t need another.
Except that it wasn’t until recently when I had a fresh guacamole and then made my own batch at home that I remembered just how awesome guacamole is. It is so spirited and exciting and fresh. And so healthy that the top result about guacamole in Google describes it as almost ‘superfood’.
I’ll run with that!
Also, this blog being for my boys so that they have a bunch of tested recipes to cook for their friends and family, Oliver (8), the eldest who is really picky and plain about food, demolished this guacamole. By itself, he would never touch avocado, red onion or coriander… or any of the ingredients.
He would just eat the corn chips and be done with it.
But he will eat this guacamole by the bucket and that is a great way to get great foods into him.
It is also why it’s called Oliver’s Guacamole.
Enjoy it like he does and go all in with the flavour!
Red onion, minced
Garlic, mashed with salt
Tomatoes, seeded and finely diced
Plain corn chips
- Mash the avocados roughly with the lime juice.
- Mix through the remaining ingredients except the coriander and correct the seasoning.
