Why I Love This Homemade Guacamole Recipe

Fresh homemade guacamole is one recipe everyone should have in their recipe arsenal. It’s healthy, easy to make, and elevates any meal. Our version features a perfect blend of fresh tomatoes, cilantro, lime juice and seasonings.

The secret to delicious guacamole is choosing the freshest, best avocados lime juice,seasoning. To determine if an avocado is ripe, look for dark green/black avocados. It should be hard, but if you put it on your palm and squeeze it lightly, it will dent a little. If it looks mushy or has dents when you press it, it’s probably overripe. If the avocado isn’t quite ripe yet, leave it on the counter until it’s fully ripe. Once ripe, store them in the refrigerator to keep them ripe for a little longer.

Ingredients for homemade guacamole:

  • avocado– Make sure you are using well-ripened avocados that are slightly compressed.
  • tomato・Roma tomato is used.
  • lime– Use the juice of 1 lime. Fresh is best, but bottling is also a pinch.
  • garlic– I like fresh garlic, but if you’re using garlic powder, start with 1/4 tsp.
  • coriander– Use as many as you like. I usually use about 1/4 cup chopped.
  • sea ​​salt– Start with about 1/2 teaspoon and adjust to taste.
  • onion powder
  • Tony Chasser seasoning・This is the secret ingredient! It adds great flavor, but is completely optional.

How to make homemade guacamole:

  1. Mash the avocado. Slice the avocado, remove the seed, and peel the shell. Mash it until it reaches your desired consistency. We like the chunky side.
  2. add flavor. Dice the tomatoes, mince the garlic, and mince the coriander. Add to the mashed avocado and mix gently.
  3. Season to taste. Taste the guacamole and add salt, lime juice, and/or Tony Chacher if desired.
  4. Serve and enjoy!

Tips and Suggestions


  • Add diced red onion or radishes for a crispy finish
  • Add cumin for a smoky flavor
  • For guacamole with kick, add chopped jalapenos. If lowering heat, remove seeds and guts before dicing.leave them alone for more intense heat
  • Use orange juice instead of lime juice
  • Add diced mango for a sweet and savory finish

Storing Leftover Guacamole:

Guacamole is best eaten the same day it is made. Leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Press plastic wrap over guacamole to keep it green. Alternatively, lubricate in a storage container and carefully add cold water about 1/4 inch from the top. Just pour water before serving.

How to use frozen avocado:

If your avocado is fully ripe and not ready to use, put it in the freezer. Simply wash, dry, wrap in plastic wrap, and store in a resealable freezer bag for 3-6 months. Frozen avocado works well with guacamole.

How to enjoy guacamole:

  • As a sandwich spread or in sliced ​​turkey and veggie wraps
  • spread on toasted bread
  • As a veggie patty topping
  • For baked sweet potato
  • As an ingredient for deviled eggs
  • as a vegetable dip
  • on a grilled cheese sandwich
