The Best Guacamole You’ll Ever Make

If you know me, you know that it wasn’t long ago that I couldn’t stand avocados. The texture, the taste. It was all bad.

But my whole world has been changed! Now, if I have the opportunity to put avocado on anything I’m eating, I TAKE IT!

So when my hubby suggested we make guacamole to take to our family’s house for the holidays, I was all for it.

We combined a few basic guacamole ingredients with “secret” ingredients and techniques James learned from his Abuelita. The end result = AMAZING!

We’ve made this several times in just a couple weeks. It’s great with chips or even in burritos!

Prep time: 25 minutes
Yields: 1 1/2 cups of guacamole

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup red onion
  • 1/4 cup cilantro
  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes
  • 2 medium/large ripe avocados
  • Juice from 3/4 a lime (about 1 1/2 tablespoons)
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt + more to taste
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground pepper (feel free to add more if you like it spicy!)

Instructions

  1. Chop onion into small pieces. Then add cilantro and chop together until the onion is very fine.
  2. Slice cherry tomatoes in half, then scoop out the insides. Slice each half two more times so you have a total of eight pieces. Repeat until you have 1/2 cup of tomatoes. Note: Removing the insides keeps the guac from getting too runny.
  3. Combine the avocados, cilantro/onion mixture, lime juice, olive oil, salt and pepper in a medium-sized bowl and gently mash together. Note: You can make the guac as chunky or smooth as you like.
  4. Once you are close to the desired texture, mix in the tomatoes.
  5. Taste and adjust where needed. If it’s too bitter from the onion, try adding a bit more lime juice or a dash more salt.
  6. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Do not leave the guacamole out of the fridge for more than 2 hours.
When refrigerated in an air-tight container, it will keep 1-2 days.
