Method:
1. In a medium bowl, mash together the avocados, lime juice, and salt. Mix in onion, cilantro, tomatoes, green chillies and garlic. Blend for a few seconds in the blender, if the mixtures is too coarse.

1. It was awesome!!! 😀
2. This was my first time picking avocados in the market. My tip would be to pick the soft ones if you plan to use them immediately. If you plan to make the guacamole a few days later, you could buy firm avocados and keep them in a bowl in your kitchen, to ripen. If you keep them refrigerated, you’ll slow down the ripening process.
3. My guacamole looks ‘fine’ because I ran the ingredients through the blender. 2 of the 3 avocados I picked were nice and soft. One wasn’t so it was kinda difficult to mash them thoroughly. Hence the blender option.

4. Tostitos, lime or jalapeno flavoured, go best with guacamole.
5. It’s a 15 minute recipe and needs zero cooking. Please try making it. Pretty please! I know you’ll love it!
