You’ve Guac To Be Kidding Me

I’m ashamed to say that I didn’t try guacamole until I was 23 years old.  I went 23 years without taking the pleasure of dipping a tortilla chip into a mound of the heavenly greenness, known as guacamole.  But since I’m not fond of dwelling on the past, I’ll just savor in the past few years that I have been able to enjoy it and the many years of guacamole eating that are yet to come!

With that said, ever since realizing that I LOVE guac, I have done my best to perfect my recipe.


  • 3 Haas Avocados
  • 1 lime
  • 1/2 small red onion
  • 2-4 sprigs of cilantro (about 2 tbsp.)
  • 1 jalapeno
  • 1 tbsp. vinegar
  1. Peel and pit avocados and put them in a large bowl.
  2. Slice lime and squeeze juice over avocados.
  3. Dice onion and add to the mix.
  4. Chiffonade cilantro and add to the mix.
  5. De-seed jalapeno and dice.  Add to the mix.
  6. Add vinegar to the mix.
  7. Use a potato masher or alternative utensil to mash guacamole to your liking.


And that’s it!  You have yourself a wonderful bowl of guac!  Grab some tortilla chips for a dip or spread it over some chicken and rice.  However you choose to eat it, I’m sure it won’t disappoint!
