Guacamole is a Mexican dish made from ripe, mashed avocado, traditionally served as a dip with nachos, as a side dish ir a sauce for tacos.  The word 'guacamole' is most likely derived from the "Nahuati" words ahuacati meaning avocado and molli meaning sauce. 

Guacamole is best made in a molcajete, a mortar and pestle made from basalt rock, which gives a crushed texture without turning the guacamole to a puree.

Halve 3 large avocados, remove the stones and scrape out flesh with a spoon.

In a mortar and pestle, grind 
1 small chopped onion
2 chopped serrano chillies 
2 tablespoons chopped corianter

Add avocado, mash until mixture is slightly rough, then stir in 2 finely chopped tomatoes.

Season well, garnish with chopped onion, tomatoes and coriander.
