What to do

  • 1. Mash the avocado flesh in a medium-sized bowl until almost smooth but with still a few chunks in it.

  • 2. Stir in the remaining ingredients and adjust the seasoning, to taste.

  • 3. If not eating straight away, cover the surface of the guacamole with plastic wrap to keep oxygen from discolouring the avocado.

  • 4. Garnish with a few pepitas and mint leaves, and drizzle over a little olive oil. Serve with tortilla chips for the perfect starter (but obviously, put this on everything!).
