The classic Mexican dip is so much tastier if you make it yourself and our easy guacamole recipe will show you how.

You can make it as chunky or as smooth as you like – it’s up to you! If you have any leftover guacamole cover in clingfilm making sure the clingfilm touches the surface of the guacamole to help stop it from going brown. You can also drizzle it in lemon juice before covering too to help stop it from browning.

  • drizzle of olive oil
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • ½ fresh chilli, finely chopped

  • small red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tomato, chopped
  • 1tbsp chopped fresh coriander leaves
