Guacamole – with zest…

This Guacamole is my families favourite, we were fortunate to have lived in places where avocadoes were easily available, so I have prepared this dip a million times for every occasion from birthday parties, brunch, or for sundowners with friends.  Now in Europe, avocadoes are really accessible something that makes me very happy!!!



  • 3 ripe avocados
  • 1 ripe medium tomato
  • Juice and zest of 1 lime or lemon
  • 1 spring onion
  • Coriander
  • Salt and pepper



  • As you chop all the ingredients, keep adding them to a bowl
  • Chop the avocados in small chunks
  • Chop tomato in smaller pieces
  • Chop finely spring onions (you can use also red onions if you like stronger taste)
  • Grind the zest of a lemon or lime…. this adds a great additional lemony taste.
  • Add the lime or lemon juice to taste… I used the whole lemon
  • Add fine chopped fresh coriander
  • Add salt and pepper to taste
  • For an additional spicy touch, you could also add a bit of hot chili flakes to taste.

Mix well… I don’t like to over mix it, since I like my Guacamole a bit chunky.  If you prefer a smother finish, you can also mash the avocado completely before adding the other ingredients.  You can serve it with chips, I served it with carrot and cucumber.

    Me gusta el aguacate, lo he probado en diferentes sitios, pero no hay como los aguacates de los valles alrededor de Quito 👌
