Mexican guacamole in a bowl served with tortilla chips.

Homemade Guacamole

Homemade guacamole is the crowning piece of many Mexican dishes. It’s creamy, rich and adds a cooling element to spicy dishes.

Like all good guacamole, this recipe has got layers of different flavors; the smooth avocado mellows out the pepperiness of the red onion and the jalapeños, while the acidity of the lime cuts through and adds freshness.

How To Make The Best Homemade Guacamole

This homemade guacamole is made using ripe avocado, garlic, red onion, jalapeno, fresh cilantro, zesty lime and a dash of hot sauce. Start by chopping up the fresh components. Guacamole can be smooth or chunky, so cut your ingredients according to your preference. As a general rule, once you pick a style, cut all the ingredients into similar sizes.

Dice 1/2 a red onion, chop 3 cloves of garlic, cut 2 jalapeños (remove and discard all the seeds) and finely mince around 2 tablespoons of cilantro. Add all the ingredients into a large mixing bowl. Next, juice 2 limes and add to the bowl. Mix together until well combined.

To prepare the avocados, slice in half, remove the pit and then scoop out the flesh – throwing out any bruised areas. Place the avocados into the mixing bowl and then add the salt and pepper. Next, mash the avocados with a spoon until it reaches the desired texture (chunky or smooth). For the finishing touch, add in hot sauce and stir until well mixed.

When serving, keep guacamole fresh by nesting the guacamole bowl in a larger bowl. Place ice cubes around the sides of the small bowl to keep it chilled.

Guacamole is tasty when eaten alongside Loaded Cheese Sauce Nachos and just as tasty when it’s the star of the show, scooped up by crunchy tortilla chips. Did you like this recipe? Subscribe to my newsletter, leave a rating below and don’t forget to tag @PlantBasedDogGuy on Instagram!
