I love avocado. The bright, fresh, green colour that greets you when you slice one in half. The versatility – you can put it in a salad or on toast, pair it with chicken or bacon, or mash it up and serve it on corn chips. Whatever you pair it with, it makes the dish better.

One of the reasons they taste so good is probably because of their very high fat content. But this is one fatty snack I don’t feel guilty about scarfing down. Avocados are full of the good fats not the bad ones and they have lots of antioxidants and other good things in them too. I made guacamole for the first time a couple of months ago and I’ve been making it a lot ever since. Its so easy and tasty.
Here’s how I make mine:



  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 2 tablespoons Red onion diced finely
  • 1 tomato, diced finely
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon mild chilli minced
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley (or coriander if you like that sort of stuff *bleh*)
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Peel the avocados, remove the stones and roughly chop into small pieces. In a shallow bowl, mash the avocado with a fork until its mushy with only a few lumps left. Add the diced onion, tomato, chilli, lime juice and parsley. Season with salt and pepper and mix until well combined. Serve with tortilla chips and homemade salsa om nom nom 🙂
