The Only Guacamole Recipe You’ll Ever Need

There’s something happening with guacamole these days.

People are junking it up with this and that (beans, tomatoes, tequila?) and causing it to lose it roots. In my opinion, guacamole should be simple! Five ingredients or less with an emphasis on creamy, ripe avocados and limes. There’s no need for all that fancy funky stuff. Get back in the game, people. This doesn’t need to be difficult.

This recipe is for the guacamole I’ve been making for years and years. It’s the guacamole mom made for my eighteenth birthday party when we all sat around my family’s kitchen table, eating red velvet cake and guessing what we would be doing in five years, the guacamole I made for my college roommate and I during numerous Lifetime movies and the guacamole I continue to make for each and every function I attend.

It’s simple, really. And so, so, so good.

And I’m blogging about this today because I figure every girl needs a good guac recipe. It comes in handy for those hot summer nights when the cute boy from the beach asks you over for dinner and the only thing you can think of is if your favorite sundress is clean.

I’m telling you—you can go FAR in this world with a good guacamole recipe.

It’s okay. You’ll thank me later. I promise.

    sounds amazing, but i say you gotta have some tomatoes in there too! the contrast in texture is fantastic and goes so well with the red onion. now you have me craving guac!

    i agree that i love simple guac! i was thinking that yesterday when i made it. my favorite combo is avocado, onion, a little tomato, lime, garlic and S+P. of course i guess that isn’t that simple. sometimes i just totally fake it and just mash up the avocado, add S+P and pretend that’s guac. why not??

  • Lauren at Keep It Sweet

      I actually use a can of Mexican flavored Rotel which comes with enough tomatoes, limes, seasoning, etc. So, avocados, Rotel, red onion and of course FRESH cilantro. Now I have to admit I do fall into that group that can get carried away if I know that I am eating most of it during a football game on Saturday and add chipotle chili powder to it which gives it a smokier flavor than straight jalopenas. Chips and guac, just may become dinner now. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I’m sitting here eating a bowl of oatmeal, reading about guacamole and somehow now craving it at 8:45am!
    I love the simplicity of this. I hate the new “throw in everything under the sun” trend that does seem to be happening everywhere. I usually make it pretty much the same, sometimes I add some diced tomato. only sometimes ๐Ÿ™‚

    I have a similar recipe for simple guacamole. Mine always has garlic in it too – essential for my garlic loving ways! I’m not 100% against it being tarted up from time to time (I can support the diced tomato people) but I just love it simple.

    This way, in the summer, you almost always have all ingredients on hand. Love it!

    Ok when I just went to comment, the comment field was pre-populated with Brandi of BranAppetite’s information. And this is my laptop. Ok that was weird!

    Anyway though..the guac..looks delish and I agree, KISS method (keep it simple, sweetie). I have what i call “cheater’s” guac which is avos, lime juice, and a few shakes of Mrs Dash (b/c it already has the onions,garlic,peppers, jalepenos) in it. Not for everyone but sure saves me time ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Michelle @ Turning Over a New Leaf
    May 18, 2011 at 7:11 am

    My guac recipe is simple. Avocado and lime juice. Maybe salt and pepper. Though when I went to a restaurant this past weekend with tableside guacamole service, we added cilantro, tomatoes, and garlic. ๐Ÿ™‚ For some reason I’m not into spicy stuff in my guac. I figure I have the salsa for that.

    • Sarah
      May 19, 2011 at 2:48 am

      Perfect! I do avocados, salt, crushed red pepper, a bit of black pepper
      Use a sharp knife or two to combine and smoosh. Yum! The flavors speak for themselves!!

  • Nadine
    May 18, 2011 at 7:12 am

    That looks alot like mine! The only difference is that I add a little garlic & some diced tomato.

    May 18, 2011 at 10:14 am

    We’re way too obsessed with guac ourselves. Your recipe is very similar to mine but with two small difference — I shake in a few sprinkles of dried cilantro (sometimes fresh but usually dried) and I use smoked hot sauce instead of jalapeno.

    So good, though. So good. And now I’m going to have to make some for dinner.

  • Veronica (Run Write Repeat)

    There are so many ways to make good guacamole, but we agree that guac should be made with avocados! We raise avocados and ship monthly subscriptions and gift boxes direct from our family farm. Most of the time we use salsa and cilantro in our guacamole…with a little garlic powder and other seasonings. If you like fresh avocados and want them direct from a USA farm, please look us up! Thanks for the beautiful recipe and photographs of our favorite fruit!

    We’ve made guac this same way for years except for one minor change. We don’t add the red onion.

    We run it through the food processor then squeeze the onion juice through a clean towel into the avocado mixture. And if it’s the right time of year we’ll use a sweet onion (Walla Walla type) instead of red.

  • yummy supper
    May 18, 2011 at 10:34 pm

    Nothing beats a good bowl of guac – for me, the ultimate comfort food! Glad to see you are keeping it simple…with creamy avocodos, not much more is needed, right?

    I sometimes go even easier if I don’t want to chop anything or bought avocados and forgot the jalapeno and red onion – smash the avocados (and keep it chunky, please!) with salt, a squeeze of lime, and a sprinkle of cayenne pepper.

  • Jenny K.
    May 19, 2011 at 7:56 am

    I TOTALLY agree with your guacamole statements. My dad, who pretty much throws garlic in everything, tried adding it to guacamole. He strongly warns against it. I think he was slightly bewildered that garlic didn’t make it better, haha. But he learned his lesson after that experiment. Guacamole should be simple. I’m glad he tested it out and passed the lesson along, so I don’t have to.

    I agree it should be simple. I make mine nearly the same, sans the jalopeno and add a clove of garlic, generous dash of cayenne and a very light splash of worcestershire sauce. Num!

    I made this today and it’s delicious, and very addicting! I usually add more things like tomatoes and garlic, but I really liked the simplicity of this one. Definitely will make again!

    Great recipe! I think the juice of one lime would be just perfect for our taste though. It was so limey, I couldn’t taste much of anything else.

    My recipe is VERY similar, sometimes it’s lemon if I don’t have lime…and I do half a red bell pepper (small dice) because I can’t eat spicy foods ๐Ÿ™‚ love it. I always tell my friends, when it comes to guac the simpler the better.

    I think cilantro and tomatoes are fine. Even the onions. But I came looking for a real recipe and found it. I only want the original ingredients in this one. Thank you so much.
