Guacamole

As long as you have a couple of ripe avocados then this is very quick and simple to make.
 

Ingredients:

  • juice of one lime
  • 3 tomatoes, roughly chopped
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 tsp chilli powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 ripe avocados
 

Method:

  1. Place all the ingredients other than the avocados into a blender and blend until smooth.
  2. Cut the avocados in half and remove the stones in the middle. If they are fairly ripe then you should be able to scoop the flesh out with a spoon. If they're not ripe enough for that then don't worry, just peel them carefully with a knife and chop them into 1 cm cubes.
  3. Add the avocado to the onion and tomato paste and blend until no large bits of avocado remain. It's a matter of personal taste, but I prefer a slightly chunky texture, so don't blend until it's entirely smooth. However it's up to you.
  4. Chill for at least half an hour.
  5. Serve with tortilla chips to dip or as a topping to quesadilla.
 
Serves 4 or more, depending on how hungry they are and what there is to dip.
