This is the one -- the best EVER guacamole recipe, and it's been a closely held secret for decades. My family is crazy about it, and it's requested often. It's so easy you'll wonder why you ever bought that pre-made stuff at the store, and you won't believe the flavor!

How To Make guacamole ole`

  • 1
    Cut the tomato in half, scoop out the gooey seed center. With a sharp knife, cut the tomato into very small bits, being careful not to mush it. Place the chopped tomato bits on a paper plate, and blot carefully with a paper towel to remove any excess wetness. Set aside.
  • 2
    Peel an onion and grate it on the smallest side of a box grater. This will produce a watery onion mush. Place 2T. into a medium mixing bowl.
  • 3
    Add chilies, garlic, salt and pepper, stirring to combine.
  • 4
    OPTIONAL: If you want to kick up the tomato essence in the guacamole, mince several pieces of sun dried tomato and stir it in.
  • 5
    Peel avocados, and mash on a plate with a fork, with the lime juice.
  • 6
    Add the mashed avocado and lime juice mixture to the bowl, stir gently to combine.
  • 7
    Serve with tortillas, chips, or veggies. In theory, you could use leftovers as a yummy spread on a turkey sandwich, a nice tostada, or in a burrito... but who has leftovers?!

    NOTE: I prefer to make this just before I want to serve it, so the avocado doesn't darken. It's best served within an hour or two, at room temp.
