Recipe for Guacamole

2 ripe avocados
3 spring onions (scallions)
3 ripe tomatoes
1 red and 1 green chilli – preferably the small hot ones
1 lime
Good bunch of fresh coriander leaves
Milled salt and pepper

1) Finely slice the spring onions into thin rounds.
2) Finely chop the tomatoes and then absorb most of the water with kitchen towel.
3) Top each chilli and then slice open. Remove and discard the seeds. Finely slice.
4) Mix all in a bowl.
5) Finely chop the coriander – don’t worry about removing the stems. Add to the mix.
6) Good pinch of salt and a nice grind of pepper.
7) Use a fork to mangle up the flesh of half the lime, getting as much juice into the mix as possible.
8) Mix thoroughly.
9) Now, slice round each avocado and separate, remove the stones.
10) Scoop out the flesh and really scrap to get the green layer from inside each shell.
11) Use the fork to mash the avocado into the mixture and thoroughly mix again.
12) Gently tamp the mix down into the bowl and then squeeze the other half lime over the top.
13) Cover with cling film and chill – have a drink.
14) Serve with tortilla chips, slices of French bread or slices of pitta bread.
