A very balmy 83F (28C) today. Its as if spring only lasted a week. What better way to enjoy the warm weather than some yummy guacamole.

After having Mexican food in the States, I don't think I can ever go back to Old El Paso ready-mix you buy in supermarkets in Sydney. There is such an abundance of Mexican restaurants in Manhattan ranging from dirt cheap but bloody good to gourmet and hideously expensive, you're bound to find one that you like. Our favourite by far has to be
Mexicana Mama located at 525 Hudson Street in Greenwich Village, a tiny place with only six tables (we have a tendency to like restaurants in tiny spaces) that's moderately priced. With daily specials, amazing salsas and magaritas that will blow your socks off, we've taken everyone who comes to visit us in New York there.

I created this recipe from trial and error as I was craving guacamole a few weeks ago (yes, in the middle of winter). You may think that one avocado is not enough, but trust me, its plenty for two people.

A perfect snack on a warm day. Icy beer optional.

1 Serving

1 avocado pitted and smushed
Half diced tomato
ΒΌ cup finely chopped cilantro (coriander)
1 minced garlic clove
1 thinly sliced green chilli
Half diced red onion
Half lime juice
Salt & pepper

Combine all the ingredients and serve with tortilla chips
