Home made guacamole

Guacamole is a refreshing green "salsa" with its origin in the Aztec food culture. I make it for Mexican food, such as tacos, nachos or fajitas.

Home made guacamole

1 ripe avocado
2 tsp crème fraîche or sour cream
2 pinches chili salt
2 squeezes lime/lemon juice
½ clove garlic, crushed or grated
a very small handful coriander/cilantro leaves

1. Slice the avocado in two and remove the stone.

2. Mix the avocado, out of its skin, with the rest of the ingredients to a semi-smooth paste.

3. Sprinkle with chopped coriander/cilantro leaves.

4. Enjoy with your favourite Mexican food!

Oh no, I can't remember what went in it. All I remember is tomatoes, red onion, red chili, lime leaves, salt and pepper... I don't think I made it any fancier than that. Try it and let me know how it went!

Good luck!
