Chucky guacamole, so good you’ll never buy ready-made guacamole again

Chucky guacamole, so good you’ll never buy ready-made guacamole again

I am a little late to the avocado party. I never used to like avocados. All this smashed avocado craze has passed me buy. Every cafe I go into seems to be offering up smashed avocado slathered on toast. With or without a poached egg.  It was only when I made my own guacamole. I got it. I got avocado. It was a revelation. Wow! Avocado can taste this good. This recipe for chunky guacamole only takes 10 minutes to make, and there’s no returning to the ready-made stuff.

This is my take on guacamole. I am not professing that it’s an authentic Mexican recipe. This chunky guacamole is fresh, tangy and lip-smackingly-tingly good. Best eaten with simple, plain tortilla chips.

If you have a barbeque coming up, take the shop bought guacamole off your shopping list and buy the ingredients to make your own chunky guacamole.

Trust me, you will never buy ready-made guacamole again!
