GUACAMOLE is a delicious no-cook sauce of very ancient Mexican origins dating back to the period of the Aztecs.
Simple to make, it is prepared without cooking and is characterized by its buttery texture, deep green color and fresh and irresistible flavor.
GUACAMOLE is prepared with avocado, white onion and tomato and is flavored with fresh coriander, lime and chilli.
The secret to perfect GUACAMOLE sauce is first and foremost the choice of avocado: it must be soft and ripe at the right point.
Another important thing is to prepare by hand and not with the mixer: you have to mash avocado with a fork or mortar together with lime juice until it becomes a cream.
To complete the GUACAMOLE sauce you need to use very finely chopped onion, chopped chilli, salt and pepper.
GUACAMOLE sauce, such as Hummus and Tzatzichi is perfect to accompany an aperitif.
You can serve in small bowls together with cornmeal nachos, with vegetable chips, or use to fill tortillas or fajitas, and it is also perfect as an accompaniment sauce for meat, fish and salads.

Guacamole should be consumed immediately after it has been prepared.
The trick to keeping guacamole green is to make sure the air doesn’t touch it.
You can store guacamole in the refrigerator for up to three days.
The trick to making perfect guacamole is using avocados that are just the right amount of ripeness. Not ripe enough and the avocado will be hard and flavorless. Too ripe and the taste will be off.
Check for ripeness by gently pressing the outside of the avocado. If there is no give, the avocado is not ripe yet. If there is a little give, the avocado is ripe. If there is a lot of give, the avocado may be too ripe and not good. In this case, taste test first before using.
Chili peppers vary individually in their spiciness. So, start with a half of one chili pepper and add more to the guacamole to your desired degree of heat.
If you don’t have a mortar, you can use a fork.
If you don’t like the taste of coriander or can’t find it, you can replace it with parsley or omit it.
