Perfect Guacamole (Recipe)

Perfect Guacamole (Recipe)


Earlier this week, we brought you great recipes for homemade chips and salsa for your Cinco de Mayo Fiesta. We’d be remiss if we didn’t provide a recipe for another favorite dip. Try out this guacamole, and come back tomorrow for some drink recipes!



  • 2-3 Cloves garlic, peeled
  • 2 Serrano chiles, stems removed
  • 3 Ripe Hass avocados, halved and pitted
  • 2-3 Tablespoons fresh cilantro
  • 1 Small white onion, finely chopped
  • Coarse Salt
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh lime juice

1. Finely chop the garlic and chiles. Transfer to bowl.
2. Score the avocados in a crosshatch pattern. Don’t go through the skin. Using a spoon, scoop out into bowl with garlic and chiles. Mash with the back of a spoon or a potato masher. Stir in cilantro and herbs, and combine. Add salt and lime juice to taste.

Sounds good, although I don't put garlic in my guacamole :)

The best guacamole I've ever eaten contains only three ingredients: Avocados, lemon juice and garlic. I've made this simple recipe for other people, and they agree it's the best they've had.
