A delicious chunky Roasted Avocado Guacamole from scratch made with only 5 ingredients and a few minutes of your time. Probably the most famous Mexican dish.
When I order avocado on my burger or toasted sandwich I want to see chunks of the real thing, not green slime the consistency of sour cream, wouldn’t you agree?
Why I don’t buy avocado guacamole
Guacamole is one of my favourite dips, but so often the store-bought versions disappoint. They contain very little of the fruit and plenty of fillers: cream cheese, cream, milk powders… Yuck!
So today, in a true Wholesome Cook spirit I’m saying no to store-bought dips. I’m sure there is an exception, but I am yet to find it…

How to make Avocado Guacamole
Make your own chunky avocado guacamole from scratch. All you need is a ripe avocado, or two, some lime juice, chilli, coriander and onion. Add 1 small chopped tomato for a more traditional guac dip.
While traditionally Jalapenos are used to add a spice factor to the dip, for a nice colour contrast I added red long chilli instead. To help lift the acidity of the dip and keep it green for longer, I also used baby cocktail onions instead of raw onion. Besides raw onion can leave you with bad breath, and I’m sure you don’t want that.
You can omit the roasting/grilling step if you don’t have time, but I find that you can pre-heat the oven grill and roast them while getting all your ingredients ready.
