  • 1 lime to yield 2 tbsp of juice
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 fresh green chili
  • 1 scallion white and green parts
  • 2 ripe avocados (See notes)
  • 2-4 tbsp lukewarm water


  • Cut the lime in half and use a fork or a reamer to juice it into a small jug. (you want about 2 tablespoons of juice)
  • Dissolve the salt in the lime juice and set aside.
  • Finely chop the green chilli and the scallion.
  • Cut the avocados in half and remove the pit. Use a small spoon to scoop out the avocado flesh.
  • Mix everything together until you have a nubbly lumpy mixture.


  • Place the guacamole into a plastic container and use a spoon to smooth the top.
  • Pour over enough lukewarm water to cover the top of the guacamole by 1/2 inch. Ensure no part of the guacamole is poking out of the water.
  • Seal the pot and store in the fridge for 3 days.
  • When you are ready to eat, carefully pour away the water and give the guacamole a quick stir.
  • Taste your guacamole and add more lime juice and salt if needed.


If you can find them shepard avocados are the most perfect avocado for this guacamole! They are bright bright green and resist oxidation. But if they are unavailable then Hass avocados will work just as well here.
