Why not celebrate Spicy Guacamole Day by giving your usual guacamole recipe an authentic Mexican kick? Avocados are not only delicious; they are also a very healthy food. Their succulent, creamy-white flesh is high in nutrients and has zero cholesterols. Avocados are perfect when they are just soft to the touch, so can be bought and stored a few days before you need them.

For a spicy guacamole, take four ripe avocados, peel, seed and cut them into chunks. Place in a bowl and mash with a fork. Add half a teaspoon ground cumin, one large tomato, diced, one large white onion, peeled and finely chopped, two Serrano chilies, seeded and chopped, and four tablespoons freshly-squeezed lime juice. Season to taste with hot pepper sauce, sea salt and ground black pepper. Stir together and pile into a serving bowl. Serve immediately with tortilla chips or your usual accompaniments. Enjoy!
