This is an easy (mild) guacamole. The key is to toss all of the ingredients into the bowl before mixing and to mix with a slotted spoon, which mashes the avocados. If you need to refrigerate to use a day later, add the juice of an extra lemon then place in storage dish without lid, place cling (clear) film directly on top and pat onto the guacamole so that there is no air in the container. Then place lid on container. It should be good for up to 2 days without browning.

Ingredients: 6 ripe avocados (chopped), 2 tomatoes (chopped), 1 medium onion chopped, 1 bunch of coriander (cilantro) (finely chopped), juice from 2 lemons, juice from 2 limes, 1 serrano chile (ribbed, seeds removed and finely minced), coarse salt, tablespoon of cumin powder. Optional tablespoon of mild chili powder & tablespoon of coriander powder.

Toss all of the ingredients into a large plastic bowl. Using a slotted spoon mix, slightly mashing avocados. Enjoy with tortillas or in wraps.


  1. Dude, I was in Mexico for months and would make guac every couple days and there was ALWAYS something missing. I should have just emailed/asked you! haha I was missing the cumin and coriander. Must try this!

    1. Totally did the trick. I made guac last night and added cumin, chili powder and fresh cilantro. Soooo good. Thanks Gabs!
