My guacamole….


…is GOOD. Finally, my guacamole is GOOD.  I’ve spent years making guacamole for different festivities, and finally decided that I never liked it as much as the store bought kind. But then, I decided that I didn’t like a lot of store bought kinds because they had too many red onions. So, with my back up against a wall (so to speak), my hand was forced. I had to give it another whirl.  And guess what? I will never eat another guacamole again. This is simple – really simple, and I guess that’s how I like my guacamole.

And, it’s Cinco de Mayo so I thought I should blog about guacamole!! What better way to celebrate the Mexican army’s unlikely victory against Napoleon’s French army in the 1800s than a good ol’ bowl of guacamole.****


  • 2 large ripe avocados
  • 3-4 tablespoons chopped tomatoes (seeds removed and patted dry)
  • 3-4 tablespoons chopped SWEET onion
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice (about 1/2 lime)
  • Several dashes hot sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher/coarse salt
  • Pepper to taste

And….mash it all together. I like it a little chunky, so I don’t over-mash. Serve with bite-size Tostitos, THE BEST TORTILLA CHIPS OF ALL TIME.

****Did you think Cinco de Mayo was Mexico’s independence day? It’s not.
****Do you think Cinco de Mayo is a huge holiday in Mexico? It’s not. In fact, they barely celebrate cinco de mayo at all!

    Guacamoles are such a formidable staple in Mexican meals. Not only that, they are fundamentally great, with their avocados providing the 'meat' for the whole thing. It is perfect for vegetarians as well, who are looking for alternative takes on familiar textures that only meat usually provides. Anyway, thanks for sharing your recipe with us. Have a great day!
