Probably the most famous of Mexican recipes, good guacamole takes some serious beating. Inspired by a trip to Southern California, we decide to play with the ingredients and make a Mexican guacamole recipe that was a little bit more adventurous by using our tomatillo salsa.

The result is a tasty Mexican guacamole recipe that is full of fresh flavour and would be a perfect accompaniment to all our Mexican recipes. 

Try serving this authentic guacamole recipe as a topping on our easy chicken fajitas, a topping on some beef nachos or dolloped into a chicken burrito.

Having recently bought a pestle and mortar, we made this guac in it using the Tomatillo salsa – it was delicious! Lots of zing, full of fresh lime and coriander, and pairs beautifully with tortilla chips for a snack. Muy bueno !
