The Best Guacamole' in the World

Thanks to everyone who has emailed asking for this recipe.

Many years ago having a few avocados and tomatoes needing to be used my guacamole' was created.   I am not a fan of creamy guacamole'.   I love sour cream... mayonnaise, but I don't want either in my guacamole'.   I want it chunky and full of flavor.   This is so simple and tasty, I promise.

The Best Guacamole'

3 to 4 avocados, (depending on size) chopped
1 to 2 tomatoes, chopped
1/2 onion, chopped
(a purple onion adds nice color, but I use whatever is on hand)
1 jalapeño, seeded and chopped
2 to 3 cloves garlic, chopped
A handful of fresh cilantro, roughly chopped
salt and pepper to taste
Juice of a lime or 1/2 of a lemon

Throw everything in a bowl.  
Gently toss.  You want to mix it, but not mash it.
I often use my hands.
Squeeze lime juice to coat ingredients.

I hope this does not disappoint anyone who emailed asking for this recipe.
 Calling it the "best" is actually a joke between my daughter and I.  I don't really remember how it began; I may have said something about receiving a few accolades.
It is all in good fun and continues to make both of us giggle.  

And, yes, I think my pizzas rock as well.

Bon Appetite!

I hope your week is going well!


  1. I love that you love everything you do. I love guacamole, now don't laugh...my recipe is almost identical but without the jalapeño!!

    The pizza looks amazing!! And I could get use to this, seeing you more often!!

  2. I am going to try "your best!"
    I think it will be like mine . . . except for the jalapeño . . .

  3. Thanks Bonnie. I also look forward to seeing you more often :)

    1. Sue, you are so kind. I hope to return on a more regular basis. As you well know, it is all about time. I hope you are having a wonderful week.

  4. That guac recipe is perfect. My daughter is lactose intolerant so this is perfect for her.

  5. Looks delicious. I like that you didn't add mayo or sour cream. Must try this recipe. Thanks.
