The one with the avocado and cilantro

I love dipping things in guacamole, and I love dishes with cilantro. I've never combined my love for these two favorite things, but I mixed them up together a while ago. Normally I don't use red pepper, but chopped cherry tomatoes. This is how I made this cilantro guacamole: 

What you'll need:
  • 2 avocados
  • 1 lime
  • a big handful of fresh cilantro
  • 1/3 red pepper
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil

Destone the avocados, scoop the good stuff out of the skins and toss in a bowl.
Mash them with a fork.

Squeeze the limes

and add the juice to the avocado

Finely chop the cilantro

And add to the mixture

Finally, chop the pepper and stir through all the green stuff
I added a pinch of salt and pepper too.

I served the guacamole with nacho chips and fresh bread. 
Are you an avocado aficionado? 
And what's your favourite guacamole recipe?


  1. I don't have a fave guacamole recipe coz I love all of them! :D TY for sharing this, Marieken. And Happy Monday!

  2. Delicious! Your recipe is a lot like mine, except I add a bit of red onion, too.

  3. I love this! I've not tried the spicy version before, but it looks amazing :)

  4. I bet my husband would love this! He really likes those posted red peppers. There really is nothing like homemade guacamole - the stuff in the stores just can't compare.

    Honestly, I haven't made any since he left on deployment. Some days I don't eat enough fat (what a weird problem to have, right?!), so I should probably pick up some avocado to have on those occasions.

  5. This looks and sounds delicious! I love a great avocado dip! I also love it spread on a wrap with salad.

  6. I love guacamole! Sounds really good right now. :)

  7. This looks amazing! I love avocado dips!
    Lovely photos btw:)

  8. Looks delicious! I love avocad dip. Thank you for sharing good recipe! I pinned your blog to my pinterest board!

  9. Yummy, your cilantro guacamole looks so good! Totally going to make some this week too. Kisses, love.

  10. This looks incredible. Guacamole is probably in my top five favorite foods.

  11. Yum! I need to get back to making this. Guac is so simple, healthy and delicious. I have to try it with cilantro. Love it with lime and spice.

  12. It looks delicious...and is healthy and pretty, too! :)

  13. I never thought of its. For me avocado means one thing : avocado shake. Haha I have never eaten raw avocado. In the workplace, they combine it with ice cream.. I don't like. Sorry

    But with the twist of your new ingredients, I think this can work for me especially with my favorite nachos.
