Hola everybody! Today I am going to share with you my recipe for the best guacamole you have ever tried! A bit of spiciness, and a deliciously smooth texture, I am sure that’s one guacamole you are going to love!
I LOVE avocados, especially the HASS ones for their creaminess! You can do so many different recipes with them, or just enjoy them on their own. And guess what, they are good for you! Yes avocado contains fat but it’s the healthy fat that your body needs to function properly and get you through your day.
And that’s not their only benefit!
- It contains lots of different vitamins that your body needs, amongst them Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Vitamin B,…
- An avocado contains more potassium (and less sugar) than a banana! Yep that’s right! We usually tend not to get enough of that mineral in our body so that’s a good way to fill up on it.
- Avocados contain monounsaturated fat, as I was telling you before, the good fat that our body needs.
- They are loaded with fibre which can help with weight loss.
- Eating avocados can help you reduce you bad cholesterol level (LDL), while increasing your good cholesterol level (HDL).
- They contain lots of antioxidants like Lutein and Zeaxanthin that are really important in maintaining good eye health.

So now, let’s get cooking! Below is a list of ingredients you are going to need to make this delicious guacamole.
2 ripe avocados
1/4 cup red onions – thinly cut
1 hot chilli or if you don’t have any you can use some red pepper flakes or Tabasco sauce
1 small tomato (or 1/2 a big one) – pulp and seeds removed, chopped
1 Tbsp of fresh lime juice
2 Tbsp of fresh cilantro – thinly cut
1/4 cup of Greek yogurt
Some salt and black pepper – to your taste
- Cut the avocados and remove the flesh. Then mash them in a bowl with a fork.
- Add the onions, tomato, chilli, lime juice, cilantro, Greek yogurt and the salt and pepper to the bowl and mix it all together.
- Don’t forget to taste your guacamole and add salt, pepper (or maybe more chilli) if needed.
- If you are not going to serve your guacamole straight away, cover it with plastic wrap and put it in the fridge. A trick for your guacamole not to turn brown is to press the plastic wrap on the mixture to get rid of all the air trapped in the bowl as the brown color is caused by oxidation of the avocados : problem solved 🙂
Now invite your friends over and enjoy this guacamole with some chips and salsa!
