Best Guacamole Ever

guacamole-5 copy
A few years ago I decided I wanted to make guacamole. I looked online for recipes but couldn’t settle on one recipe.

guacamole-2So I decided to pick and choose the ingredients from a few different recipes and come up with the perfect blend of fresh ingredients to make the best guacamole ever.  I think I managed to do just that.  My family does too.

guacamole-4Of course, if you have a guacamole recipe that you think is the best ever you are more than welcome to stick with it.  If you don’t try mine you won’t even know you are missing out on the best guacamole ever 😉  heehee!

Here’s my recipe if you want to print it out and give it a try.

Best Guacamole Ever


  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 3 TBS fresh lemon juice
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 5 TBS chopped tomato
  • A lot of cilantro, chopped
  • 2 jalapeno peppers, chopped (seeds are optional)
  • salt to taste


  1. Peel avocados and remove pit. Add lemon juice and mash avocados with an avocado masher or a fork. Leave them a bit chunky.
  2. Add garlic, tomato, peppers, salt and lots of cilantro.
  3. Salt to taste
  4. You can add more or less of any ingredient to your taste.
  5. Making a double or triple batch is recommended.


I’m thinking I should have put avocados, cilantro and jalapenos on the grocery list this week.

guacamole-3Next time avocados are a good price at your market – buy some.  Add some jalapenos, tomatoes, garlic, cilantro, and lemons to the cart too.  And make yourself a batch of the best guacamole ever 😀

Have a wonderful weekend – I hope it’s warm where you are.

      Oh no – you have more snow?! We are going to be getting some pretty cold weather again this week with the possibility of snow. I think ‘this is the winter that never ends… no it goes on and on my friends… ‘ it’s a spoof on an old song – did you ever sing it? ‘this is the song that never ends, no it goes on and on my friends, some people started singing it, not knowing what it was, and they’ll just keep on singing it forever just because, this is the song that never ends….

      GAH! Now I’ve got it stuck in my head 😀 I think you are rubbing off on me my friend!

    I LOVE guacamole. BIG TIME! I usually just add a little salsa instead of the tomato & jalapenos mostly because I don’t always have them on hand but salsa, I do! Now you’ve made me crave some!

      I’ve used lime juice before too and I use lime in my fresh salsa. It seems the lemon juice helps the avocados not get dark as quick – even more so than the lime juice. Plus I tend to have lemons or bottled lemon juice on hand more than lime!

    You are quite the photographer gal, your photos are making me drool. I love guacamole something fierce and it’s hard to find really “good” guac. Can hardly wait to make this. Never made it myself so we’ll go crazy eating it. Yummmm. Happy Spring days and thanks so much for sharing your guac recipe.
