We all have those recipes that are our go-to’s…the recipes that everyone requests at a gathering.  This is that recipe for my dear friend, Debi. She recently came over and shared her recipe for authentic guacamole recipe with me, so I can share it with you!

This is truly the most delicious guacamole I have ever tasted. This recipe has become requested almost daily in my home! Once you try this easy to prepare recipe, you will never go back to store-bought again. 


Ingredients needed to make guacamole:

  • 4-5 ripe Haas avocados
  • 1/2 red onion, diced
  • 1 lime, halved
  • 2-3 plum tomatoes
  • jarred jalapeno peppers
  • Kosher salt
  • fresh cilantro (optional)

To make the most delicious guacamole, follow these simple steps:

  1. Dice half of a red onion.
  2. To the onion, add about 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt and the juice of one squeezed lime. (A little tip: roll the lime before slicing it in half and squeezing it. This will help you get the most juice out of it.)
  3. Next slice your avocados in half and remove the pits. Using a spoon slice the avocado into small chunks and then scoop them into your bowl. Mash the avocados.
  4. Once you have all of the avocado in your bowl, get ready to add jalapeno peppers. Take a tablespoon or two of the jalapeno peppers and dice them into small pieces. Add these to the mixture.
  5. Next start out by seeding the tomatoes. Then, dice the tomatoes. Add these to your guacamole. Save a few tomato pieces to sprinkle on top!
  6. Add chopped fresh cilantro and parsley, if you choose.
  7. Finally, mix the guacamole well. Salt to taste.


Since I began making this guacamole so often, I purchased this Marble Mortar and Pestle. I use this to grind the avocados and mix small batches of guacamole.


Why do you seed the tomatoes?

Seeding the tomatoes will prevent your guacamole from being too wet or watery. 


Can you omit any of the ingredients?

The best thing about this recipe is that you can adjust it to your taste. My family prefers that we skip the cilantro and parsley, but you can customize this recipe for your taste.

What can you serve this guacamole with?

Of course, this guacamole goes well with tortilla chips, but it also makes a great dip for veggies. I enjoy dipping carrots and cucumbers in it.

Do you enjoy avocado toast? Why not spread this delicious guacamole on multigrain toast for breakfast? Yum!

This delicious guacamole goes perfectly with my recipe for The Most Amazing Margaritas.
