Guacamole is an incredibly easy “dip” to make.  Avocadoes are the main ingredient and one of my altogether favorite vegetables though technically a fruit. Guacamole is incredibly versatile.  When I make mine I like to flavor it with jalapenos, cilantro, red onion, tomato, lime, and a little bit of garlic salt.  Guacamole is completely up to whoever is making it and what they like. 

If you want to make variations to Guacamole you can add hot sauce of your liking to spice it up or sour cream for a smoother, less traditional version.  I love guacamole to have at a party because it never goes to waste.

  • 4 soft avocadoes*
  • 1 jalapeño minced (chopped really tiny)
  • ¼ cup onion minced (chopped really tiny)
  • 1 tomato minced (chopped really tiny)
  • Garlic Salt to taste
  • 1 to 3 limes use to taste
  • Cilantro optional

*A little hint with working with avocadoes. You always have to put lime or lemon (citrus) on them to keep them from turning brown or leave the big pit that’s in the middle of the avocado in with the mashed up avocadoes.


Take the avocadoes and slice them in half, rotate the two halves so they just pop apart.  Put the avocado in the bowl.  Squeeze one lime into the avocado.  Add jalapeño, onion and 1teaspooon garlic salt. Mash the avocado with a fork or your hands. I prefer using my hands because you can feel the texture of the guacamole so you know whether it is chunky or smooth.  Once it is to the texture you like mix in the minced tomato and cilantro if you choose to use cilantro.  Taste! Add more lime, garlic salt, jalapeño, onion and tomato to your liking!

Please leave your comments and what you would like to learn how to make next!  What do you like to add to your guacamole?
