Smashed guacamole

It was only when putting a new website together for Guac that I realised I have never done a guacamole recipe. So here's my take on guac.

I hate it stodgy and creamy, that heavy mixture that reminds me of a neglected salad table at a barbeque. Instead of blending, I just mash guac with a potato masher, after chopping all the ingredients apart from the avocado really small. I like being able to see what I'm eating with guac.

This recipe is fresh and juicy.  If I've put a chili in anything else I'm serving I'll usually leave it out of the guac, so it can be refreshing against any heat, but add or takeaway to your own taste. 

Enough for four

3 ripe avocados

Add everything to a large mixing bowl and mash, then season to taste. Thumbs up!
