I like a guacamole that is well seasoned, bright with fresh lime juice and has a bit of texture. Get someone else to pour the margaritas while you make this just before serving. Use a fork to crush the avocado and mix it up but don't go too far – you want to leave some small chunks of avocado in there. Check the seasoning before you serve to ensure you have the balance of flavours right.


2 large hass avocados

1 jalapeno, seeds removed and finely diced (optional)

40g red onion, finely diced

40g chopped fresh coriander

sliced radishes (optional)

1½-2 tbsp fresh lime juice

1 tsp fine sea salt


1. Place all the ingredients in a bowl and use a fork to crush and mix together until they're combined but not completely smooth.

2. Serve with corn chips or as a condiment for tacos.

Serve with my tacos al pastor and banana, caramel and rum tres leches cake for a Mexican fiesta.
