Today I want to tell you about a recipe that was shared by my good friend Mare over at I Got It Free With Coupons on Facebook. She made us a batch of easy guacamole last year for Super Bowl and it was amazing! I asked her for the recipe thinking it was something that was super complicated. I did not think that in less than 10 minutes, I could have a fresh batch of guacamole ready to serve and enjoy!

Today we are sharing this easy guacamole recipe with you to serve up with your friends and family.

Start with fresh ingredients and a clean working space.

We recommend a good cutting board for this recipe. Check out these CC Boards – 3-Piece Nonslip Cutting Board Set: Juice groove stops meat and vegetable spills; nonskid for chopping and dicing; plastic cutting surface will not dull kitchen knives; dishwasher safe

 Make cuts length wise along the purple onion about a half-inch apart. Then cut width wise to create small cubes. Dice in to smaller pieces.

easyguacamolerecipe - jalapenos

 Cut jalapeno length wise and wash out seeds in the sink with cool water (or put seeds on a paper towel to dry and save for your spring garden). Cut off the stem. Then, make length wise cuts on the pepper and then width wise to create small cubed pieces.

Cut tomato length wise and wash out seeds in sink with cool water. Then cut tomato length wise and then width wise to create small cubed pieces.

easyguacammolerecipe - avocado

Make sure your avocado is dry. Use a chopping board and carefully cut length wise along the avocado. Then grab the top and bottom pieces and twist so they come apart. Take your knife and tap the avocado seed. The knife will grab the seed, then twist and it will come away from the avocado. Use your knife to cut thin strips length wise down the avocado flesh. Be careful not to cut through the skin. Then, take a spoon and carve between the skin and the edge of the avocado flesh and scoop out. With the flesh on a cutting board, cube avocado in to bite size pieces.

easyguacamolerecipe - mixed guac

Add avocado, onion, tomato, cilantro and jalapeno to a mixing bowl. Using a fork, mash some of the avocado so that it becomes a creamy texture. Leave some larger pieces to keep the consistency. Mix in juice from half of a lemon and a fourth of a teaspoon of McCormick Chipotle Chili Pepper seasoning. Add salt and pepper to taste.  Mix well and serve immediately or keep chilled in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

[ *Edited: I previously posted to use a teaspoon of McCormick Chipotle Pepper seasoning in the guac recipe and realized this would turn us all in to fire breathing guac eaters. So, in the interest of our Easy Guacamole Recipe and your digestive system, I recommend you scale back the Chipotle Pepper seasoning… and I edited the recipe on 2/18 ]

Here is a link to my favorite brand of spatulas. Have you tried using them before?

TIP: Guacamole will keep well in the refrigerator for about a day. This is a recipe that you would want to prepare, chill and serve all within a few hours to get the best taste from the ingredients.

Mix it up a bit by substituting lime juice instead of lemon. You can also experiment by using Serrano peppers instead of jalapeno but be careful because the Serrano pepper is 5x hotter!

Have you made homemade guacamole before? I would love to hear your comments on this recipe and your tips on making it your own! 

Until the next Hot Mess…..

  1. Avocados are something that I really really want to like, but they aren’t my favorite. One way that I do like them, however, is in a guacamole that is full of other goodies (can’t stomach the ones that are just mashed avocado). Your recipe looks so much like the first guac I ever tried, made by a student of mine from South America. Pinning this one!

  2. Thanks for checking it out. I agree with you on the chunky avocado vs the mashed. We can’t do creamy over here either. I guess it is a texture thing. Hope you enjoy it if you follow this recipe!
