guacamole ingredients

I’m all for using short-cuts; and when I need guacamole as part of my overall recipe –  like my loaded nachos or potato nachos, I don’t mind buying it from the store pre-made. For my palate, I can’t really tell the difference.  But when I just want to sit and munch with tortilla chips, there is really no replacement for homemade guacamole.

Two AvocadosI start with two jumbo avocados.  I wait to cut into  them though until everything else is prepared so that my guacamole will be extra fresh.

So dice your red onions, de-seed and chop your tomato and jalapeño, and mince your cilantro.  Have your lime juice already squeezed out and ready to add to the mix to keep your avocado from browning.Guacamole Veggies Chopped

I’ll let you in on a little secret.  I use bottled lime juice unless I’m feeling really ambitious.  I really can’t tell the difference when I do, but it does make me feel a little more authentic when I juice my own…but whatever.

Tamed Jalapeños


Here is another secret.  My family doesn’t like the heat of jalapeños but I like the flavor.  I use the “tamed” kind that come in a jar.  Use what makes you happy.


Whoa…look at these two perfect avocados!Two Avocados Cut

I like my guacamole a little chunky and so I very carefully cut/mash it up, being mindful to leave some chunks.Guacamole Mixing
