3 tablespoons Coriander or Parsley, chopped
1 1/2 teaspoons Coarse Salt
Sprinkle of Cayenne pepper or Chilli Powder
juice of 1/2 Fresh Lime
How to make Guacamole:
Process tomatoes, onion, garlic, and chilli (or capsicum) in blender a food processor for about eight seconds.
Add avocado chunks, coriander, salt, chilli powder and lime juice to the food processor bowl. Process additional ten seconds.
