  1. Step 1

    Cut the avocados in half, remove the stones and scoop the flesh into a bowl. Add all remaining ingredients except chopped jalapeños, and mash together, leaving some larger pieces of avocado if you prefer a chunkier guac.

  2. Step 2

    Alternatively, scoop the avocado into a food processor and add the garlic, salt, lime juice, and jalapeño pickling juice, if using. Pulse if you like your guac chunky, or blend if you like it smooth, adding the onion and coriander at the end and pulsing just enough to mix it in.

  3. Step 3

    Garnish with the jalapeño chillies, if desired. Serve immediately.


Finely dice 1/2 a red capsicum and mix that into your guac for another refreshing hit of flavour and colour!

Hot tip!

Guacamole is one of those things you can’t really screw up, as long as you’ve got the basic foundation: avocados and salt. Adapt this recipe however you like according to your taste.
