Madhouse recipe : Guacamole

Guacamole is one of those things that I always make by throwing things together in a bowl without even thinking about it, let alone using a recipe. Sophie is taking a real interest in proper cooking now though, not just baking, so I gave her a quick masterclass today - I'll have my own sous-chef soon at this rate !

Madhouse Guacamole

ingredients :

2 avocadoes
a few cherry tomatoes or half a big tomato
a 1/4 clove of garlic
a slice of onion
a squeeze of mayonnaise
a squeeze of lemon juice
a shake of salt
a shake of chilli powder (optional)

Halve the avocadoes and keep the stones - you can grow them. Throw the avocado flesh, onion, tomato and garlic in a bowl. 

Get Billy out (he's our hand held blender and it says Billy on the box so that what he's known as. I used to call him Billy Whizz, but it went over everyone's heads so I gave up !) and mix it all to a creamy, smooth consistency.

Mix in a squeeze of lemon juice (to help preserve the green colour) then add a tablespoon full of mayonnaise to make it nice and creamy. Season to taste.

Guacamole is great with fajitas and tacos, but also spread over wraps filled with chicken and salad or alongside a plateful of carrot sticks and red/green/yellow pepper strips.
