Serve this homemade guac with tacos, or simply with sliced veggies and pitta for dipping.


Preparation method

  1. Slice each avocado in half, remove the stone and then spoon out the flesh into a bowl. Add the garlic, olive oil, lime juice, and Tabasco and mash with the back of a fork. You could also do your mashing using a pestle and mortar if you wish.

  2. When you have a smooth mash, stir through the chopped coriander. Season well with salt and black pepper. Garnish with coriander and lime wedges and serve within an hour of making.
