Glorious Guacamole

I’ve been going out to a lot of Mexican restaurants recently – which means I’ve been having a lot of guacamole.

Guacamole Islandbell and Udi's Gluten Free Tortilla ChipsLondon is absolutely fantastic for food, but really amazing guacamole is something that I struggle to get here – I much prefer chunky guacamole over pureed, flavourless mush.

Guacamole Islandbell and Udi's Gluten Free Tortilla ChipsSo when Udi’s send me over a hamper of some delicious gluten free goodies, my eyes went straight to the pack of tortilla chips – and I couldn’t think of a better way to enjoy them than with a delicious emerald bowl of the most incredible guacamole.

I received a hamper from Udi’s Gluten Free for the purposes of review – if I didn’t like it, I wouldn’t blog about it!

  • I love guacamole, but I’ve never thought of making my own. Thanks for the recipe!

    I can’t stand guacamole, it’s the texture that puts me off. So I am wondering if I made my own at home and not mushy, I would start to like it! The recipe does look great. Am going to give it a go! Wish me luck!

    • Thanks Laura! I think you should – the homemade stuff is SO much nicer, and I hate the mushy texture too – chunky is the way to go! xx

  • I eat something avocado based almost everyday! Chunky, with chips and a movie is my favourite way to enjoy.

    • That sounds so good – I love avocados so much, ever since I was little! You really can’t beat a good bowl of guac xxx

  • I am totally the same with avocado. Seriously, I could just eat bowl after bowl of guac and chips!!

    Jasmin Charlotte

    • Same! Guacamole and chips are definitely one of your five a day… right? haha! xxx

  • This looks so good! I love guac, although I only discovered this fact a few months ago – so plenty of catching up to do!

    • Thank you so much, Milly! It’s so, so delicious – and it always makes everyone so happy when you show up to a house party with a massive container! xxx

  • You simply can’t beat a proper bowl of guac!

  • I agree that it’s really hard to find good chunky guacamole, and I hate the over processed stuff! This looks really tasty

    • Thank you so much, Suze! I don’t really like over pureed guacamole, it’s a bit too much like baby food! xxx

  • Have you found that in London restaurants if they purée the guacamole too much it’s indistinguishable from mushy peas? I’ve seen people did into mushy peas thinking it was guacamole and OMG THE EXPRESSION ON THEIR FACE hahaha

    • I have not yet witnessed this – but it sounds amazing. This is why we all have to stand up and right the injustice that is over-pureed guacamole! xx
