I love Guacamole but I never found a store brand one that I liked. I started to play with ingredients. After testing it on my children, I made it for my siblings at our Christmas get together. My brother lives in Houston and he tells me all the time that I couldn't ever make it as good as what he gets down there. So I made him eat his words! He loved it as did everyone else!

  • 3
    avacados, ripe
  • 1 large
    tomato, diced
  • 1/2
    red onion, diced
  • 2
    jalapenos, fresh, seeded and diced
  • 2 1/2 Tbsp
    garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 tsp
  • 1 tsp
  • 1/2
    limes, juiced
  • 3-4 Tbsp
    cilantro, fresh, washed and chopped

How to Make Guacamole


  1. Remove seed from avacado. Squeeze avacado out of skin. Using a fork, mash the avacado until it is half creamy and lumpy.
  2. Add diced tomato, diced onion, diced jalapeno. Mix completely.
  3. Add garlic, salt and pepper. Mix completely again.
    Sometimes I need to add more salt at the end but I only do it by taste.
  4. Squeeze the lime juice out of the lime half right into the bowl. Mix again.
    ***The other half of lime can be used with the margaritas!
  5. Add chopped Cilantro and mix again.
  6. Server and enjoy!
    If you are making it for later, cover with plastic wrap and make sure the wrap is laying right on the guacamole to prevent the brown color it gets from contact with air.
  7. Note* If you like it hotter then put some of the pepper seeds in the mix.
