Guacamole Recipe

Guacamole is one of my favorite things in the entire world. I love it as a dip, atop grilled chicken, along with any number of recipes, or even as a topping on a simple salad.

I love to go to restaurants where they make it fresh right at your tableside. The entire area is immediately perfumed with the scent of all the fresh ingredients and you know exactly what is going into your guacamole! In just a few minutes, your served a bowl of fresh, bright and delicious guacamole along with crispy chips or other items to dip into your guacamole.

But you know, guacamole is just as fast and easy to make at home.

You only need a few simple ingredients and in less than five minutes, you’ve created one of the best guacamole recipes I’ve ever tasted. And you didn’t even have to change out of your yoga pants.


We all know that the big game will be upon us soon. With that comes the absolute need for great game day recipes you can make and share with family and friends as you watch the game.

Do me a favor and go ahead and add this guacamole to the list.

You’ll be so glad you did!

With this simple recipe, you can then add so many other variations. Grilled corn makes a great touch as does grilled jalapenos or Serano chilis. The addition of the fire-roasted ingredients adds a whole new level to the flavor of this guacamole. You can also add a touch of fresh orange juice for a remarkable flavor.

  1. Can I just tell you I could eat guacamole every day? I love it on a turkey sandwich. 🙂

  2. Robyn, sounds like you and I share a deep LOVE of guacamole!! When I began making my own from scratch, it was life changing. 😉 There is nothing like fresh homemade guacamole…. though I’ve never tried adding cilantro or cumin and anxious to do so!

  3. Mmmm guacamole! You make yours the way I make mine…with tomatoes and onion! YUM!

  4. Oh yes, love me some guacamole! We make it almost the exact same way, except instead of Cumin – I add Fajita Seasoning… What can I say, those Texas roots run deep. 😉

  5. I could eat guac every day for the rest of my life and be completely happy. 🙂

  8. Very much how I make mine – such a great recipe!

  9. I am going to make this for the Superbowl! Thank you! It looks so delicious.

  10. Copied recipe as I have about 6 in frig… Hopefully not overripe.. found a bargin price at ALDI at .25 cents a piece.. Couldn’t pass them up at that price… Enjoyed then plain with a squeeze of lemon or lime juice but your recipe sounds delish!!!

  11. I made Guacamole for the first time last month, i surfed the net and your recipe was the easiest to work with. I didn’t include the cumin in mine recipe. Everyone loved it, so i’ll be making it again soon. I’m going to try the “strawberry Cake” recipe. I like that you recipes are simple and easy to follow. Most of the items on the ingredient list are things that most Ppl have at home already. Thanks for keeping the recipes fun & simple.
