Easy and Authentic Mexican Guacamole / Avocado Dip

Recipe by Amy Duchesne
READY IN: 20mins


  • 3
    ripe avocados (ripe as in really dark in color and slightly soft when squeezed)
  • 1
    small onion, finely diced
  • 1
    medium tomatoes, diced
  • 1
    lime (juice of )
  • salt and pepper (to taste )
  • Tabasco sauce (optional)


  • Take avocados and cut into and around the circumference of the avocado's pit.
  • With both hands twist the two halves in opposite directions and pull apart.
  • Remove the pit with a knife or a spoon.
  • Carve out the flesh of the avocado with a tablespoon.
  • Place avocados into a medium bowl and mash and stir until moderately creamy. I use a fork or a pastry blender.
  • Some people like the avocados more chunky than others-- either way it tastes great.
  • Add diced onion and tomatoes to the avocados.
  • Add salt, pepper, tabasco sauce and lime juice and taste to see if seasoned enough to your liking.
  • In a separate small bowl put in 2 tablespoons of the dip.
  • Add 1 tbsp of sour cream and adjust your seasonings again.
  • Taste it and decide if you prefer your guacamole with or without sour cream.
  • If you like with sour cream add 4 tablespoons or more to the avocado mixture and adjust your seasonings again.
  • If not, do nothing and leave it like it is.
  • Serve chilled with chips or add a little to your taco salad, tacos or fajitas.
