Fresh Homemade Guacamole

Susan Feliciano


We used to watch the waiters at a restaurant make this guacamole. The restaurant is no longer in business, but the recipe I still use all the time at home. It is very similar to one I learned in Mazatlan, Mexico. Choose Avocados that give slightly to the touch, and hold at room temperature about 24 hours before making the guacamole.

How to Make Fresh Homemade Guacamole


  • 1Mash the avocados with the juice of the orange and lime; combine until smooth.
  • 2Add everything else and stir until well mixed. Taste and adjust salt.
  • 3Serve with tortilla chips, or other Mexican dishes, such as tacos, burritos, or fajitas.
  • 4This is best eaten as soon as it is made. If you want to try to save leftovers, place in a glass or ceramic container, sprinkle with lime juice, and cover with plastic wrap touching the entire surface. This helps prevent darkening.
