Homemade Guacamole

We went to Mexican street food restaurant Wahaca last night. To start we had guacamole and their amazing puffed up pork scratchings. Sadly I have no idea how to make the puffed up piggy bits, but homemade guacamole is really easy.

The first thing you need are two avocados. Stone and peel them then cut the flesh into chunks. Mash the flesh up in a bowl with a fork (doing this at the beginning makes it a lot easier then trying to mash the avocado with the rest of the ingredients in the bowl). Then add half a finely chopped red onion, about six chopped cherry tomatoes and a very finely chopped red chili. To this add the juice of a lime and perhaps a few drips of Tabasco sauce, if you want it hot and give it a good seeing to with the fork. You can use a blender if you want to spend all evening washing up, but I prefer a bit of texture.

We had it with some French bread, but tortilla chips or crisps are good too.
