    Emily Elizabeth's Note:

    My mom learned how to make this from a local of Guadalajara Mexico. It is very simple to make and quite delicious! It's always a big hit when I have guests over. Great for a margherita party! Serve with tortilla chips (try Healthy Baked Corn Tortilla Chips (Homemade)). Out of necessity, I have omitted the tomatoes and it still tastes great. I have also added a few tbsps of fresh chopped cilantro when I have it on hand.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Wash and discard the peels and seeds of your avocados and put the remaining flesh in a medium sized bowl.
    2. 2
      Add lime juice, salt and pepper and mash into the avocado with a fork or potato masher until smooth.
    3. 3
      Dice tomatoes, onion and jalapeño and stir into avocado mixture. Add more salt to taste.
    4. 4
      STORING: Put into serving dish and cover with plastic wrap so that the wrap is pressed directly on top of the guacamole (eliminating air exposure) and refrigerate until ready to serve.
    5. 5
      OPTIONAL PREP TIPS: Dicing Tomatoes - Half tomatoes then squeeze each half gently and use your fingers to get rid of seeds and excess juice then dice. Dicing Jalapeños - Slice the jalapeño in half lengthwise and pull out seeds and membrane. Slice lengthwise into long thin strips, then bunch the strips together and cut crosswise into very finely diced pieces. (Be sure to wash your hands and don't touch your eyes, I learned the hard way!).

      This is the same as my recipe, except I add 1/4 of a bunch of chopped fresh cilantro! Not sure if the cilantro is authentic, but good! 3 tips** 1) keep the pits, don't throw them away. after you make the guac, push the pits down in the guac, it will not trun brown (the top will turn a little if you don't put plastic wrap directly on top) **2) if a fresh jalapeno is too hot for you, try jalapenos from a jar. Slight heat, still great! **3) when you cut open the tomatoes, remove the seeds for a less watery product. And yes, NEVER buy guac ever again! ENJOY!

      This is my first ever review on this site. This recipe warranted a great review. Best guacamole ever!! I've made it twice now, exactly how the directions stated and both times were delicious! The second time I put the guac in a seven layer dip. I didn't have to change a thing. I didn't add any cilantro and I love cilantro... but this recipe really doesn't need anything extra.

      Made this for Let's Party 2011 and I did add a little cilantro and fresh garlic but otherwise followed the instructions. Delicious! Served this with Southwestern Stuffed Bell Peppers#76043, Homemade Baked Tortilla Chips#370127 and The Best Restaurant Salsa Made at Home#133436. Thank you for posting the recipe.
