Recipe 6: Traditional Mexican Guacamole

Last night my mom told me some regions is the US were expecting temperatures of -50 degrees celcius, and just the idea gave me shivers. If you are American: my (hopefully warm) love is going your way right now! I am lucky enough to reside on the Southern French countryside at the moment, and today was quite nice an warm: it was 16 degrees above freezing point. For lunch, we sat outside in the sun, drinking a glass of Rioja wine and enjoying some great food.

For the specific lunch, I prepared some traditional mexican guacamole, which originally only contains four ingredients: red chili pepper, lime juice, coriander, and obviously some avocado. I decided to go the traditional way today, but feel free to adjust it in any way you want, with either onion, tomato, or anything else you like.

What do you need?
  • 1 small red chili pepper
  • 1 lime
  • A handful of fresh coriander
  • 2 avocados
How to make it
  1. The first thing you need to do can be quite messy: getting all the green goodness out of the avocados. I used green ones, but the dark ones are definitely easier to use, as they have a hard skin.
  2. Now use a mortar and pestle (you can use something else though) to smoothen the avocados. I prefer chunky guacamole with little pieces of avocado still there, but you can make it as smooth as you want.
  3. Once you've put the avocado into a bowl, you can add all of the other ingedients: some chopped up red chili pepper and coriander, and you can squeeze in your lemon. Mix all in well.
  4. All you need to do now is serve the guacamole with some tortilla chips, veggies, rice cakes, or anything you like. The sky is the limit!
Do not forget to be happy today, even if you feel like the cold is nearly killing you!
