Posted in What's for Dinner Mom?


Now that BBQ season is well underway it’s time to start whipping up a few tasty side dishes.  Guacamole is a super accompaniment to steak, burgers, chicken or just served with tortilla chips and a beer.  It takes 5 minutes to make and I would class it as a health food.

You will need:
2 ripe avocados
1 small red onion
1 lime
handful coriander
optional – 1 red or green chilli
Slice the avocado in half, remove the stone and scoop out the flesh with a spoon.  Use a knife to roughly chop the avocado.  Peel and finely chop the red onion.  Rinse and roughly chop the coriander.  Half and then juice the lime (you are only using the juice).  Deseed and finely chop the chilli if using.  Using a fork or a potato masher combine all the ingredients for a chunky guacamole (if you prefer it smooth use a food processor).  Enjoy.
Till next time, Sheila

  1. Hi Sheila,

    This looks amazing! A perfect recipe now the sun is finally here! Great ingredients, beautifully presented.

    Keep up the fantastic work on the blog. I’m well impressed that you managed to keep blogging while on holiday, even with the Cookie Monster as distraction!

    If you get a minute, you should sign up to Twitter (and get a page on Facebook) for your blog. It’s a fantastic way to meet other food bloggers and get a few more readers to your site. Let me know when you’re set up as I’d be more than happy to help spread the word.


    1. Thanks Darren,
      Twitter features somewhere on my to do list alright. Presume you tweeting (latest new word for me) so will get signed up to you and will get a facebook page sorted, thanks for the encouragement. Sheila
