I don't like guacamole to compete with the other dishes when preparing a Mexican feast. My tamales, beans, rice, etc. don't like the competition if the guacamole has too many ingredients; trying to steal the limelight. This is a condiment that I can throw together with very few ingredients, substituting as necessary. No chunky guacamole for me, this is creamy, delicious and simple!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. *Note: My husband however insists on using homemade mayonnaise when he prepares guacamole. I felt obligated to point that out.
  2. In serving bowl, juice the lime.
  3. Scoop the avocado into the bowl with the lime and lightly mash the ingredients together to stop the avocados from turning brown.
  4. Next add the salt, a few dashes of pepper and the sour cream, mashing the avocado mixture with fork until very smooth. Adjust seasoning and add more lime juice if necessary.
  5. Cover bowl well and refrigerate at least one hour.
  6. Guacamole is best eaten within a day. Leftover guacamole doesn't exist in our household.
  7. Yield: approximately 1 cup.

*Reviewed during ZWT5 Mexico visit for Cheese and Whine Team* A quick and easy quacamole to make. I used sour cream in my quac and garnished with a sprinkle of Mexican chile powder. A good basic quacamole recipe that you could add to if you wish .Photo also being posted.

I made this recently on a busy work night.. I really liked it. Only change I made was to add a clove of crushed garlic to give it a bit of heat. Thanks so much for sharing!
