I have used this recipe for years and always get raves. I like it a little chunky, so instead of mashing the avocado with a fork, I put it in the mixing bowl and cut it up with a knife, mixing other ingredients in with the sharp edge of the knife as well. One thing I noticed with the current recipe is that it left off the instructions to add the tomatoes just before serving. That is important to keep the guac from browning.
Hi Glenn, somehow that instruction got left off in the last revision. Have added back in, thank you!
Excellent. I was cautious with the serrano chile but ended up using one whole chili. Could have used a little more but I left it at one. Husband loved it as well. Two of us could have devoured the whole bowl but had to force ourselves to stop. A great Super Bowl appetizer even if my beloved NE Patriots aren’t in the game this year.
Glad you liked it so much, Betty J! Here’s to hoping next year is YOUR YEAR for the Super Bowl! :)
Real thing!!! Bravo!
The best! Took it to a neighborhood party. Someone else brought a store-bought version, and everyone said mine was so much better!
The best guacamole ever.
I am a 12yr old and I LOVE Guacamole and it’s one of my fav foods and I think this is the best recipe I’ve ever made I made this for my lunch tomorrow
Sounds great. I’ll just substitute flat-leaf parsley for the soapweed, er, cilantro. When actually cooking a dish, I use dried Mexican oregano in its place.
I often use baby arugula when I’m out of cilantro. You might try that as a substitute as well!
I roast a whole clove of garlic at a time so I put a couple pieces in and mash with avocados. I also put in about a tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce. Learned that at a Mexican kitchen I used to work… but just my added touch
great recipe, made it probably more than 10x everytime there is party in my house or just chilin on a Friday night with vino of course.
I loved the idea of just mashing and adding salsa to mix. Viola!!! Guacamole!!!!
Excellent recipe I make it twice a week
Delicious and so simple to make!! Great ideas to modify. Thank you.
So glad you liked it!
My mom was convinced she did not like guacamole until I made this for her! It is definitely a game changer. So good and fresh! Always my go-to recipe. Thank you.
Love and make Guacamole so often, I purchased a traditional Mexican molcajete and tejolote (mortar & pestle) to make it and serve it in. My molcajete holds up to 4 avocados worth of Guacamole. The only difference in my recipe is the addition of 1 small clove raw garlic and no cilantro (I find too many people don’t like the taste of cilantro.) My preparation is a bit different also in that I mash the garlic, salt, lime juice with 1/3 of the onion and chili first, making a smooth paste. Then I add the remaining ingredients. The mash more quickly melds the flavors together as Guacamole does brown quickly and never lasts long enough for the flavors to blend otherwise. I also serve it with crispy baked, thick sliced, 1/2 strips of bacon (pure decadence) on the side, along with the usual corn tortilla chips.
Oops, bit of a correction…”1/3 of BOTH the onion and chili first.”
This recipe is legit! Never getting guac outside anymore.
By far the absolute best guacamole I’ve ever had! Thank you so much for this recipe and the recipe name is spot on! I used all ingredients as described in recipe and would not change anything about it. Pure perfection!
Enjoyed this recipe. Used some hot sauce instead of chillies and cilantro in a tube instead of fresh. It was delicous
Basic and yum
I used this recipe recently when I made guacamole for the first time. It was literally the best I’d ever had! I think serranos are the perfect pepper for this dish, although they can be a little hard to find. I did leave out the tomatoes, though.
Hi Dan, I’m so glad you liked the guacamole!
Gorgeous flavours! I also like to add minced garlic or grated carrot!
