The World's Smoothest Guacamole With Sour Cream

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 25 mins

The lime juice in this recipe will keep the guacamole from turning brown and brings it a much more interesting flavor than lemon juice. The sour cream turns it to satin.


  1. Mash the avocado with a potato masher.
  2. Using a fork, whisk in the remaining ingredients except for the sour cream (or you can do it in the food processor for an even silkier texture.) Let stand at room temperature for 15 minutes.
  3. Whisk in the sour cream, and you are ready to serve.

Made this to serve with Bev's Bean Burrito Casserole. I followed the recipe exactly but had to substitute a yellow onion. Rave reviews from all. This will be my standard guacamole recipe.

I left out the cumin as I don't like it at all. Blending it in the food processor did make it delightfully creamy. I added a half avocado and the tomato after blending the other ingredients so to have some chunk. I found the 2 limes resulted in a taste comparable to vinegar, and so I didn't care for this recipe.
