4 Ingredient Guacamole
Guacamole is the one dip everyone needs in their repertoire. With just four fresh ingredients, it only takes five minutes to make. Whilst it's an essential accompaniment to many Mexican dishes, it's delicious all by itself or simply spread on toast.

Choclette @ Tin and Thyme
medium ripe avocados
juice of ½ lime
fine sea salt
a good grinding of black pepper
ripe tomato - diced
spring onions (scallions) - finely sliced
or small bunch of chives - snipped
Half the avocodos with a knife and remove the pits. Use a spoon to scoop the flesh out into a medium sized bowl.
With a fork roughly mash the avocado with the lime juice, salt and pepper. Be careful not to overdo it, too smooth a texture and the avocado can take on an unpleasant slimy texture.
Stir in the tomatoes and onions or chives, reserving a few to sprinkle over the top.
Spoon into a bowl and scatter the remaining onions or chives on top. See below for optional extras.
Serve straight away. Guacamole really doesn't keep very well.
You can swap the spring onions or chives for a finely diced shallot.
Optional extras to either mix in or scatter over the top include:
pickled jalapeño peppers - thinly sliced
coriander leaves (cilantro) - roughly chopped
red or green chillis - finely diced
ripe tomatoes - finely diced
red radishes - thinly sliced
