We eat guacamole almost every night, and because it browns rather quickly, we whip up a new batch every night. So this recipe is about enough for two people on your dinner of choice:


  • 1 avocado
  • 1/4 cup cilantro
  • 1 medium clove garlic, chopped lightly
  • 3 tbsp salsa (we use it from a jar… very fancy)
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • salt to taste


  1. Toss all ingredients in a food processor. Process til smooth. (If you don’t have a food processor and own an immersion blender, that will also do the trick!)
  2. If you like chunky guacamole or don’t own any type of blending equipment– mash all ingredients with a fork!!! (but don’t forget to chop up your cilantro and garlic into finer pieces)
  3. Serve with anything and everything.
Mmm... guacamole goes on everything...
Mmm… guacamole goes on everything…

  1. Yum! A girl I used to be friends with, her mom made us some homemade authentic-y guacamole… but it was spicy! I think it was made with cayenne pepper or something. I wish I could remember!

    1. Yes!! Guac is super delicious when spicy! Some cayenne or chopped up chili peppers will do the trick.
      We use this recipe that I described here almost as a sour-cream substitute- it helps balance the spiciness of the other dishes it’s served with.

      1. Ooo. That’s interesting! I’m sure my husband will love it. I probably will too. Grew up loathing avocado and guac, but through sushi, and occasionally trying it at mexican places, I’ve gotten used to it. Prefer avocado chunks to guac, so this sounds fantastic. 🙂
