Notes

  • You definitely don’t require a mortar and pestle to do this. Follow the same process to make it in a bowl and use a fork to mash.
  • All of the guacamole fixings can be prepared in advance. Combine all of the ingredients (except for the avocado) in an airtight container and keep it in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Then, mash up your avocados and fold the fixings in.
  • You can also add lime juice in the beginning to prevent browning of avocado, in case you are going to take a lot of time to prepare.
  • This is your guacamole, so don’t be afraid with the fixings! Go ahead and include or exclude any ingredients.
  • You can also include lemon zest if you prefer to.
  • Adjust fruit quantity and texture to suit your taste.
