Guacamole

Howdy folks! 😊

Avocados 🥑 are among my most favorite ‘fruits’ to eat. There’s just something special about them. I’m not sure if its the creamy texture or the non-sweet, earthy taste – but they are both delicious and versatile. 👌🏾

In these parts, Avocados are mostly eaten mashed up with sugar, but on this day, we went the savoury route with Guacamole. 😋

Guacamole is a Mexican dip/salad/spread that is served as a condiment or with chips and other ingredients as a side on its own. This one was served as part of a BBQ spread, to great reviews. 😋👌🏾

  • 1/4 Teaspoon Pepper

  • Juice of 1 Lime

  • 1/8 Teaspoon Chili powder (optional)

  • Depending on the size of your Avocado, you may need one or two. Remove the seed and cut the flesh into pieces. 😊

  • Also do the same with the red Onion and fresh Coriander. 😊
