Homemade Guacamole

Hey Friends!

I have been on a major guacamole kick lately.  It might have something to do with my slight obsession with Chipotle.  So I decided to give making guacamole a try!

I looked at some recipes on Pinterest to get some ideas before I started.

So here is what I came up with:

 I am really bad at measuring out ingredients on recipes like this.  Guacamole is one of those things that taste good different ways to different people.  

I started by cutting and scooping out two avocados.  Next, I chopped up around 2 Tablespoons of Cilantro and I juiced a full lime.  I finely chopped up some onion.  Raw onion is either a love/hate.  I love it in guacamole, but it is definitely good without it too!  I took a spoonful of the Old El Paso Green Chiles and finely diced them as well.  Finally, I added some salt and pepper to taste.

Once all the ingredients are in a bowl, it is time for the fun part

Mashing it all up!

I decided to go with a potato masher because I like my guacamole smooth.  I'm sure a fork would work just as well.  Especially if you like your guacamole a little chunkier.

The finished product:

This recipe was so easy and yummy! It will definitely be a repeat.

Do you have a favorite guacamole recipe?


  1. Yum! I am one of those people that don't like to make it myself because I'm not sure I would like all the ingredients! But this looks yummy!

  2. I love guac, but It never has turned out good when I've made it myself. I'm going to have to try your spin on it!!

  3. Yum! I'm getting hungry just looking at the pictures! My wife loves making guac, but hates the onions, so I always cut them for her (she can't stand the stinging so I do it for her) because, you know, you gotta have it in the guac!

  4. I LOVE chipotle! husband and I have a serious love affair with delicious guacamole!

    We live off the road system in Alaska- so for now I can only dream of some good guac!
