Ingredients for making Guacamole
  • 3 avocados — ripe & soft
  • 1/2 of a large jalapeño, minced (I scrape the seeds out of mine before mincing.  If you prefer more spicy-heat in your guacamole, keep the seeds before mincing — or half of the seeds)
  • leaves from 15 stems of cilantro, minced
  • 6 small garlic cloves (or 3 large garlic cloves), minced
  • juice of 1-1/2 limes
  • 4 large green onions, white & green parts, sliced
  • salt, to taste

Combine ingredients in bowl, and use spoon to mash-up the avocado.  Taste and adjust all ingredients according to what tastes best to you.

The ingredients above are what I had on-hand — you could certainly substitute minced red or white onion for the green onion.  And I happened to be making this for people whose preferences for hot foods I wasn’t sure about … hence, the quantities in the recipe above for a mild guacamole.


I would have added one more avocado and probably the juice of two entire limes (versus 1-1/2 limes) if the last avocado I cut into hadn’t already gotten too old/brown.  🙁  Sad panda.

Some people like seeded, diced fresh tomato in theirs.

I have made what I call “cheater guacamole” by stirring store-bought salsa into mashed-up avocados. Olé!




    1. Totally agree with you about the daily consumption of guacamole! LOVE that stuff, and could find a way to enjoy it with anything/everything!
