    Theresa in Chi-town's Note:

    I am surprised how difficult it is to find a genuine guacamole recipe. No need for mayo or sour cream or all the other additives. This is the original, handed down generations, yet the most simple basic way to make Guacamole. I even make it better than my Mother in Law, which is a hard act to follow. :) Make this recipe and you will never go back. Hope you enjoy this like all my friends and family do.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 5 large Hass avocadoes (black in color,slightly soft to the press)
    • 2 large limes, juice of
    • 1 medium white onion (diced)
    • 3/4 cup loosely packed fresh cilantro (chopped finely)
    • 1 large tomato (Diced-make sure it isn't overly ripe)
    • salt
    • finely chopped fresh jalapeno (optional)


    1. 1
      Slice avocados in half. Discard the seed. Scoop out of shell with a spoon. Place in bowl.
    2. 2
      Add juice of one fresh lime immediately to prevent browning. Use a fork and mash to desired consistency.
    3. 3
      Add chopped onions, tomato, and cilantro. Stir gently to mix ingredients.
    4. 4
      Add juice of second lime and then salt to taste. Stir just slightly, until incorporated.
    5. 5
      Add jalapeño to taste.
    6. 6
      Serve with your favorite tortilla chips for a dip, or use with your favorite Mexican dish.
    7. 7
      a side note: this is to make a chunky, yet creamy guacamole. Some people prefer to use a food processor with all the ingredients to make for a VERY creamy dip.

      Great recipe. I would like to suggest keeping a couple of the avocado seeds to put in the finished guacamole to keep it from browning.

      My daughter just made this as a pre-Mothers Day treat for me and WHAT A TREAT! Wonderful. I had never tasted Guacamole before in my life, and now I shall never be even tempted to buy it but just make it and enjoy it with the help of this recipe that she used. What a great find - and I am so glad she printed if off so that I could also find it on your site. Congratulations on a superb recipe.

      Try this with some corn tortillas and carne asada (aka) steak,chicken or your choose of meat. A little bit of cabbage and salsa (optional). Don't forget the Guacamole inside the taco. So good you have to try..
