Guacamole, the famous and classical avocado side dish, can be served as a dip or as a condiment in dishes such as burritos or burgers.
But please, don’t over consume avocado: even though I am a huge fan of avocado, I have it once – max twice – a month as the avocado boom is having disastrous consequences in Mexico, such as deforestation and environmental degradation due to an important use of chemicals. Without mentioning the fact that part of its production is controlled by drug cartels who give a hard time to the farmers. This being said, enjoy your guacamole (it’s a treat)!
- 2 ripe avocados
- 1 small red onion, finely chopped
- 1 small bunch of coriander, finely chopped
- The juice of one lime
- Cut the avocado in two and scoop out the flesh.
- Mix all of the ingredients together and mash the mixture using a fork. Final consistency must be a smooth spreadable mixture.
