Chunky Crunchy Guac

So after doing my previous post on HOW TO: Peel Avocadoes, I had a few peeled and sad-looking avocadoes just sitting around waiting to be made into something and eaten. Therefore, what better to do with them than making my own version of the super easy, super quick and well-known Guacamole!

Pretty much all the guacs you get when you eat out or buy from the shops are mostly always in some sort of sludge form and doesn’t really have much bite or texture to it, apart from something reminiscent of slime?!? So, why not make a chunky and crunchy guac with extra ingredients in it to turn a simple and boring old guac into something amazing. Great to be enjoyed at parties, get togethers or even by yourself. Hope you guys enjoy!
