Easy Traditional Guacamole Recipe

Guacamole is a traditional Mexican dish that is a favourite dip with many people made with avocado, earthy coriander and a citrus.

Guacamole is so easy to make that I often wonder why anyone buys ready made at the supermarket. Also making it fresh tastes so much better. I like it chunky, so I mash the avocados with a fork and add the rest of the ingredients, however I appreciate other people may like it smooth, so make it whichever way you prefer. I also like to use lime juice instead of lemon because limes are more fragrant and make it more authentic.

This is the perfect dip for your nachos, on it’s own or as an accompaniment for many Mexican dishes.
