This is my own simple recipe for guacamole dip. It's an easy recipe but the flavor is just wonderful and has converted many non-guacamole eaters (like my mom who swore she hated guacamole). Every time I have made this guacamole for anyone else they either a. ask me for the recipe or b. ask me to make it again (and again, and again lol!). This is great dipping for corn chips, excellent on taco salad, adds a great flavor spread over quesadillas or tucked inside your favorite burrito. Hope you enjoy!
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 8 ripe Hass avocadoes (the perfect avocados will have almost black skin and will be soft but not mushy when gently squeezed)
- 1 medium tomato, coarsely chopped (the redder the better...best if fresh grown or from a good produce stand)
- 1 tablespoon mayonnaise (slightly heaping, I use Duke's real mayo...this is the secret ingredient)
- 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
- 8 dashes seasoning salt (see instructions)
- 6 dashes salt (see instructions)
- 10 dashes pepper (see instructions)
- 1Split avocados in half (Gently sink your knife into the avocado starting at the "stem" until you reach the pit then rotate your knife until you have completed a circle cutting it in half, gently pull 2 halves apart).
- 2Remove pits and use a tablespoon to scoop out the contents of each avocado half into a large bowl (use a bowl that has an airtight lid).
- 3Take your knife and just criss-cross through the avocados chopping them very coarsely (they will break down more as you mix remaining ingredients).
- 4Add chopped tomato, lemon juice, and mayonnaise.
- 5Gently stir until mixed (do not over-stir!).
- 6Begin adding seasonings in this order: Seasoned Salt, then salt, then pepper. Start with several shakes of each, stir and taste.
- 7Repeat until you get it the way you want it. (It shouldn't be bland and you should just begin to taste the salt coming through which will bring out the taste of the avocados. It takes more than you might think but be careful not to over-salt since your chips will have some salt in them).
- 8Seal immediately in an airtight container and refrigerate until serving.
- 9If serving this on hot dishes, do not cook or heat the guacamole with the dish -- use it as a garnish.
- 10This is best prepared fresh since avocados don't keep well (even with the lemon juice).
