The Best Guacamole Ever

Who doesn’t love a good guacamole? In my humble opinion a good guacamole is one the greatest dishes on the planet — a dip, a side, a garnish and, I confess, sometimes even a snack on its own with a spoon!

It kills me when a perfectly good avocado is wasted on a mushy tasteless guac. So here is my contribution to avocado lovers: the best guacamole ever. 

Of course, as you’ll know by now, it’s never just about the ingredients. But here are some crucial tips in the creation process:

  1. Start with a really good, ripe avocado
  2. Never, ever over-mush your guacamole. Keep it chunky
  3. Be liberal with garlic, lemon and salt to pack a punch with flavor

Recipe Notes

I like it hot, so I spice up my guacamole with jalapeño peppers or crushed red pepper chilli flakes, but if you're sensitive to too much heat you can always hold back.
