What to know how to make guacamole? This easy guacamole recipe is always on rotation in my house made with haas avocados, red onion, cilantro and lots of lime juice! Plus his secret ingredient, a little fresh garlic for some extra zing!! It made with just 5 ingredients and it’s the BEST! A staple at every gathering and a must when we have taco nights! Tommy is always in charge of making the guac, and he has converted many non-avocado lovers with this recipe.

How to make guacamole:

  • Start with perfectly ripe avocados. If it’s too hard, or over-ripe, the results will be less than stellar.
  • The trick is to a good guacamole is leave large chunks of avocado; don’t puree or mash them thoroughly.
  • Having the perfect balance of lime juice, red onion and salt is essential.
  • If you like it spicy, you can certainly add some diced jalapeño, some people also like to add diced tomato which is fine, but we like it just like this!

Tips For Making Guacamole Ahead:

  • Guacamole really is best when made fresh.  But, if need to make it a little ahead of time, put the pits in the bowl with it, along with some cut up lime wedges and cover it tightly with plastic wrap on the surface of the guacamole.
  • Adding extra lime juice help prevent browning.
  • I recommend making it the same day, but if you must this should keep 1 day. If the top browns, scrape the top off and the rest should be green.

Is Guacamole Healthy?

Avocados may be high in fat, but they have the good essential healthy fats which we should consume every day. They are also high in fiber, rich in vitamin B, E and K and have 60 percent more potassium than bananas.

What to serve with Guacamole

Guacamole is great with baked tortilla chips, lentil chips, Air Fryer Tostones, chicken fajitas, or even on a wrap in place of mayonnaise. Sometimes we even make guacamole turkey burgers.

  1. Any tips on how to pick fresh avocados? Mine always seem to be rotten when I cut into them; wonder if it is because they get frozen during transport? 

  2. This was a very easy recipe full of flavor.  

  3. another way to prevent darkening of the guacamole is to cover a the top with a small amount of water before refrigerating. the next day pour off the water without stirring the guac. it is as fresh as if you just made it. I have done this several days in a row and it is till perfect each time.

  4. I really enjoy this recipe, very tasty, super easy to make.

  5. I put the onion, garlic, and cilantro in our food processor and buzz 5-6 times. It releases all sorts of goodness and saves me time chopping! Love, love, love this guac!
