Guacamole is one of my favourite snacks! It’s so easy to make, refreshing, healthy and can be paired with just about anything. The wonderful thing about guac is, you can add any kind of combination of ingredients to this Mexican inspired dish. Here is a recipe that includes some of my most favourite flavour enhancers.


2 ripe avocados

1/2 onion, diced

2 garlic cloves, crushed and minced

1/2 tomato, diced

1/2 lime, juiced

Handful cilantro (for the non-haters)

Pinch of salt and pepper


To cut the avocados, run a knife around the avocado (from top to bottom) and twist in half. Pull out and discard the pit. Using a spoon or your thumb, remove the flesh and place into a medium-sized bowl.

Add the diced onion, diced tomato, crushed garlic cloves and cilantro (I honestly kind of eyeball it instead of using exact measurements).

Squeeze the juice of half a lime and sprinkle in some salt and pepper

Using a fork, smash the avocado until you get a creamy consistency and making sure to mix all the ingredients together.

This delicately balanced creamy, yet chunky guacamole is always a party favourite
