Here’s how to make our ultimate House guacamole
It’s National Guacamole Day, so we have the perfect recipe for recreating it at home

It may be the reason that no one under 30 can afford to buy a house anymore (who needs a first home when you’ve got brunch?), but we’ll always have a soft spot for avocado. And as we all know, the superlative iteration of this fruit (yes, it’s a fruit) is guacamole.
Obviously, you don’t need an excuse to whip up a batch, but as it’s National Guacamole Day there’s never been a better one. And lucky for you, we have the definitive recipe, courtesy of Maya, the pop-up-turned-permanent restaurant found in our Houses all over the world.
Best enjoyed with a Margarita in the living room of a flat that you’ll never afford to own.
2 ripe avocados
1 ½ tsp onion, diced
1 ½ tsp tomatoes, diced
1 tsp coriander, chopped
2 limes, juiced
Chopped jalapeno (added to taste)
Salt and pepper (to taste)
Optional: roasted corn, Cotija cheese, pomegranate seeds
1. Mash all of the ingredients together in a molcajete or with a pestle and mortar, and taste for seasoning.
2. Serve with totopos (aka tortilla chips) or crudites for dipping.
