“An attempt to write down my Guacamole recipe - always a tasty addition to a Mexican meal.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Open up the avocado and slice in 1/2. Squeeze some lime juice onto the face of each half, and then add some salt.
  2. Pick up the first half, and slice pieces with a knife in a criss cross pattern (careful not to cut into the avocado peel). Then scoop the pieces into a mixing bowl with your fingers. Repeat with all avocados. Make sure to put 1 pit in the bowl. A friend from Costa Rica taught me this, and for some strange reason this helps the guacamole to stay fresh longer.
  3. Then mash the pieces of avocado with a fork, and stir in the other ingredients. Be careful not to add too much Worcestershire or Tabasco sauce - you really just need a few drops of each. The lime and salt amounts above are not fixed - just add a little, taste it, and add a bit more until it tastes right to you. Stir the other ingredients all up and you have yourself some tasty Guac!
  4. Variations: sometimes I use salsa when I don't have fresh tomatoes, or chopped Rotel or something similar from a can. I like the glass jar of Salsa Casera, or the Embasa small can.
  5. You can also add garlic, or top with parmesan cheese.
  6. Note: the portions for ingredients are estimates! You have to use your own discretion a bit ;).
