It seems incredibly unfair to feature salsa without its amigo guacamole, so here you go! As with the salsa, making your own gives you the control to tweak the flavour – I usually bump up the lime juice in mine and enjoy a bit of heat from the chili. The recipe below opts for more subtle flavours and is a definite crowd-pleaser, but if you’re feeling adventurous, play around with the ingredients and figure out what you like!

What you’ll need

2 avocadoes
1/2 red or white onion
3 cloves of garlic
1/2 chili pepper (or more if you prefer)
1 lime
1/4 tsp salt

What to do

To begin, slice your avocado in half, remove the stone and scoop out the flesh into a bowl. Slice up the onion, garlic and chili pepper, add these to the bowl, then squeeze in the lime juice and add the salt. Using a potato masher, mash all of the ingredients until you have a relatively smooth paste, and serve. As mentioned earlier, play around with the lime juice, salt and chili until the flavour is just right.
