And to make things even better, I cover FAQ and expert tips in the sections below.
You’ll need the following ingredients to make this fresh & fuss-free avocado dip.
Avocados – the riper, the better. I used Hass avocados, but any kind will do.
Limes – Use lemons if you can’t get your hands on limes. Make sure you’re using freshly squeezed juice rather than concentrate/bottled.
Fresh cilantro/coriander – to give it that punch of flavor & a rich aroma.
Tomatoes – I used large beef tomatoes, but the variety doesn’t matter too much. Avoid salad tomatoes as they can be quite bland.
Onion – You can use yellow, white, or red onion.
Garlic? Some people love garlic in their guac, while others don’t. I left it out, but feel free to add a couple of cloves.
You seriously won’t believe how easy it is to make your own Thermomix guacamole until you’ve tried it.
All you need to do is add onion & cilantro (coriander) to your B; bowl and chop (3 seconds/speed 6).
Then add the remaining ingredients. Mix for 5-10 seconds/speed 5.
Voilà! That is all there is to it!
💡 Pro Tips
- Remember – guacamole should be a chunky dip, so don’t mix/blend it too long!
- Before serving, taste and adjust guac to your taste.
- You could add more salt, pepper, or top it off with some fresh herbs and spices.
- Use RIPE avocadoes.
- Vine tomatoes are the best option – they’re often bolder and more flavourful.
Ripe avocado should yield to ‘firm, gentle pressure’ (Source). If it’s completely hard, it still needs a couple of days to ripen. If it’s mushy, it’s probably overripe. More tips on picking ripe avocados here.
Place it on a chopping board. Cut it in half lengthwise. Twist it and remove the pit with a fork/spoon. Then remove the flesh using a large spoon.
Missing a certain ingredient?
Or maybe you’d like to try out something different?
Here’s how you can switch things up a bit:
- Jalapeños: To add a spicy element, throw in some jalapeños (to taste). For extra spiciness, include the jalapeño seeds.
- Hot sauce: Instead of jalapeño, you could also add hot sauce or spicy Sriracha.
- Spices: To keep things as easy & universal as possible, I only used salt and pepper in this recipe. Needless to say, the options for adding spices are endless. I recommend cayenne pepper, ground cumin, and paprika.
- Garlic: If you’re a fan, why not add some fresh garlic.
To make WITHOUT Thermomix. Add avocados to a medium-sized bowl and mash with a fork. Chop or blend onion, cilantro, and tomato into small pieces and add to the avocado bowl. Then add lime juice, salt & pepper. Stir well until combined. Taste and adjust.
Always serve guacamole as fresh as possible.
Don’t let it sit on the kitchen counter for too long. This will alter its color as guacamole oxidizes quite fast.
Here are some serving ideas:
- Dip: Use it to dip tortilla chips, breadsticks, or tacos.
- Spread: Spread it on a slice of fresh bread or wraps!
- Filling/topping: Guacamole makes a lovely filling too! Use it to top off jacket potatoes and salads.
📦 Storing & freezing
To store – Spoon the guacamole into an airtight container. Slowly pour about 1 cm of cold water on top.
This will prevent it from going brown. Then place it in the fridge and eat within 2 days.
Depending on how ripe your avocadoes are, you might want to finish it even quicker.
When you’re ready to serve it, simply remove the top water layer.
To freeze – Spoon the guacamole into an airtight & freezer-safe container. Place it in the freezer for up to 1 month.
To thaw - Simply remove guacamole from the freezer and let it thaw in the fridge the night before serving. Easy!
