Who doesn't love a good guacamole? Great for kids and vegetarians, a must when eating nachos and is great as a dip or spread on sandwiches and wraps.
Avocados, the main ingredient, are high in potassium, B vitamin, vitamin E and vitamin K. They also contain more fibre than most fruits.
Traditionally, guacamole is made by mashing avocado with sea salt. The essence of my recipe embodies this simplicity; maintaining the integrity of the avocado while adding a few simple, complimenting flavours.
2 Hass avocado, skin removed
1 lime, juiced
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
tabasco, to taste
sea salt, to season
Step 2 - Taste, adjust seasoning as required and process.
Step 3 - Move to serving dish, sprinkle with paprika and serve with toasted turkish bread.
If you don't have a food processor, place ingredients in a bowl and mash with a fork.
Sweet chili sauce can be used in place of tabasco. As with all seasonings, add a small amount to start with, then add more if required.
This is a great recipe to get kids involved in! Reduce the amount of chili and encourage them to try it. As they build a tolerance to chili, increase the amount used.
