Holy Guacamole!

All right, maybe it's not holy, but it's the best guacamole I've ever had. Hands down.

1. Halve, peel and pit four avocaodos. Put them in a bowl.

NOTE: The easist way to peel avocados is to halve them and then scoop the fruit out with a spoon.

Add the following to the bowl:
  • Half a small chopped onion

  • 3 cloves minced garlic

  • 1 chopped jalapeno

  • 1/2 a lime's worth of juice

  • Salt

  • Chopped cilantro

2. Cut it all up into chunks. Mix it all together. Then mash with a potato masher.

3. Taste it. If you want it hotter, add more jalapeno. Saltier? Toss in some more salt. Need a little more zing? Squeeze in the other half of that lime. You get the idea..

4. Enjoy the heavenly guac with chips, or have it as a side dish with chicken or fish.

Let me know how it goes!



  1. Your guacamole sounds awesome! I'm getting some avocado tomorrow and will see what I make with it :)

  2. Simple yet so delicious & healthy, yum yum :)!!!

  3. mmmm..guac is one of my must-haves..I make it pretty much the same way, except I add some small diced tomato & sometimes use red onion...adds to the pretty, ya know?! Looks delish..I want to cook out some yummy Mexican steaks now and smother 'em w/ some guac!

  4. I also like to add a few dashes of cumin. Guac is my go-to party food -- so easy to make and everyone loves it.

  5. So funny to avocados in the mainstream. When I was growing up in the NYC area in the 50's, we ate them because my mother was Spanish. No one else new of them then :)
    Now the are loved by everyone!!
