“This guacamole is what everyone asks me to make when they have a party. I am starting think they are using me for this recipe. I have always hated to go to parties where the guacamole is made out of a mix or it has sour cream in it. If you like those kind of dips then this recipe is not for you. For proper execution of this recipe please use the freshest ingredients as possible and try to keep the Avocado in chunks. Avocados should be ripe and preferably Haas but due to regional problems that might not be possible. The cilantro should be fresh not dried. The Olive Oils is purely for texture and adds very little to the taste of the dip. It is optional.”
5-6 cups

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Scoop out the flesh of the avocados into a large mixing bowl. Tip: to safely get the pit out the avocado give the pit a firm tap with the blade of you knife and twist it out the fruit. To remove the now stuck pit pinch it off from the back of the blade.
  2. Give the avocado flesh a good stir to break it up. There should be mostly large chunks at this point.
  3. Dice the onion. Place in the bowl.
  4. Chop the jalapeno fine. 2 if you like it spicy. Place in bowl.
  5. Rough chop the cilantro. Place in bowl.
  6. Dice the tomatoes. Place in bowl.
  7. Put the minced garlic in the bowl as well.
  8. Mix with a fork. Large chunks should start to disappear but it should still be chunky.
  9. Taste the dip and then a dd the lime, pepper and salt to taste.
  10. If the Guacamole is not smooth enough for you then feel free to add about 1 to 2 tbsp of olive oil to smooth out the dip.
