“Guacamolé is so much better if it's homemade. A few months ago, some co-workers wanted to have a group lunch in the office, and I was asked to contribute something to munch on. My first choice was a bust because I couldn't find all the ingredients, so in a pinch I thought of guacamolé. I figured it'd be something most everyone would like. Except I've never really liked it. I scoured the internet and wound up combining a few different versions and here is what I came up with. I like how there's much more than just avocado going on in it.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Open each avocado by running a knife around the long end until the blade hits the seed. Twist the halves and pull apart. Insert the knife blade firmly into the seed and twist to pull out.
  2. Scoop out the avocado flesh and place in a medium bowl.
  3. Gently mash together the garlic cloves and the salt with the side of a knife until it forms a paste. Add this to the avocado.
  4. Add the lime juice.
  5. Gently fold in the tomatoes, onion, jalapeño, cilantro leaves, and hot sauce.
  6. Refrigerate until using. Serve with tortilla chips.
