In the summer time there is nothing better than a big bowl of guacamole! It goes great as a side at a BBQ, makes a delicious topping on tacos and we all know it goes great on toast for lunch. Not only is guacamole so easy to make, but it is a big hit with friends and family too!
This recipe makes quite a large bowl of guacamole, as I firmly believe you can never have too much!
You will need:
- 4 ripe avocados
- 3 shallots or half a red onion
- 2 gloves of garlic
- 2 tablesoons of good quality olive oil
- A large handful of cherry tomatoes or 1 large tomato
- 1 teaspoon of hot sauce
- 1 teaspoon of Tabasco sauce

Chop the shallots, garlic and tomatoes and combine them with the mashed avocado.
Add in the juice from one lime, along with the olive oil.
Next, add in the Tabasco, hot sauce and some salt and pepper to taste.
Give is all a big stir, and you are done!
