Chunky Guacamole


I bought Lowen a special children's safety knife for Easter - a strange present you may think but not for a food obsessed 4 year old - that's my girl!

As the Easter weekend was so glorious here in Cornwall, we set about testing out said knife making this simple yet tasty chunky guacamole  (it wasn't going to be anything other than chunky with a 4 year old doing the chopping). Guacamole is such a versatile dish, perfect as a dip with crudites as we served it but also as an accompaniment to a nice spicy black bean chili or even spooned onto a jacket potato.

Although wonderful, guacamole is not something that can be hanging around too long as the avocado's will turn a horrible shade of brown. It will taste absolutely fine, but wont be that pleasing on the eye. Here is a trick for you - don't discard the avocado stones, sit them on top of the made dip and they will prevent discolouration, retaining that gorgeous green colour.

If you are making this for adults feel free to add another chilli for additional heat.

  1. Lowen did a fine job with that guacamole. She will be taking over the cooking in no time.

    I really feel like saying "doh!". I knew leaving the stone in the avocado would prevent an unused half from browning, but it never occured to me to sit it in the dip for the same effect.

    "DOH!"
