Guacamole – Family Recipe
There are countless variations on how to make guacamole, but this is how it has been made in my Spanish family for generations.
Its a spicy alternative to the classic guacamole that does not contain jalapeno pepper or coriander.
If you don’t like it spicy, just leave out the jalapeno and only use the coriander – its still a very refreshing variation of a classic.
Put the meat of the avocados in a bowl.
Dice the onion and the jalapeno pepper (remove the seeds!) and add to the avocado.
Finely cut a handful of coriander and add to the mixture, as well as 2-3 TBSP of extra virgin olive oil.
Season with a pinch of salt and use a hand blender to mix everything into an even paste.
While you are blending, add the juice of half a lemon (or one lemon if you feel the quantity requires it). The lemon will prevent the guacamole to turn brown/black when exposed to air.
Keep in the fridge until 15 minutes before serving.
Tip: if you want to keep if for another day, store in the fridge an airtight container. Make sure the container is not too big, there should be as little air in it as possible.
