Holy Guacamole

I've been told by a few people that my guacamole is the best they've had. It's not often I get a compliment like that! My secret to guacamole...sour cream. Very unconventional I know however the addition of sour cream turns up the dial a little, adding creaminess whilst also helping keep the guacamole looking and tasting fresh. The key to good guacamole is ripened avocado's, I only use Has and keep the texture of the guacamole chunky, you don't want to serve up what looks like pureed baby food.


Serves 4-6
4  ripe avocado's roughly chopped
1 tablespoon of fresh lemon or lime juice
1 tablespoon Sour Cream
1/2 Red Onion minced
1/2 garlic clove minced
1 ripened tomato seeds and flesh removed, roughly chopped
2 table spoons of cilantro/coriander
1-2 red chili's seeds and stem removed, minced (you can also use dried chili flakes)
Salt and Pepper

Place roughly chopped avocado's in a mixing bowl. Add the lemon or lime juice immediately and gently mash the avocado's with a fork (remember to keep the guacamole chunky!). Add the remaining ingredients and gently combine. Make sure you add enough salt and pepper. Serve immediately with tortilla chips or vegetable crudites. If making in advance, ensure to place plastic wrap right on top of the guacamole to prevent oxidation.
