I've been making my gucamole like this for a couple of years now. I'm sure I had a recipe for this guacamole but I don't remember where I found it plus I've added and subracted items from it over the years. You can make it as spicy or as mild as you'd like. Again I didn't get a very good picture but will try again the next time I make it.

2 avocados

1/2 onion finely chopped

2 tomatoes, chopped and seeds removed

2 tablespoons cilantro

2 garlic cloves, crushed and minced

1 jalapeno (optional), chopped

juice of two limes

kosher salt


Chopped avocados with two knives. Add all the other ingredients. Add salt and pepper to your taste. Chill for one hour to blend flavors before serving.

  1. We love fresh guacamole! You put in a few different things we do, I will give your recipe a try. Thanks!

  2. Yes after trying fresh guacamole we've never been able to go back to the packaged or premade stuff. What I liked best about the original recipe was I could change it easily for what we liked in our family. I always add extra garlic and lime juice.

  3. My recipe is essentially the same as this. I usually use a sweeter onion like vidalia or purple onion, and I add dashes of cayenne pepper and cumin too. I agree you can't go back to the prepackaged stuff after having fresh!
