Guacamole Recipe

Written by CMP on May 29, 2008

Guacamole is one of those dishes that is so incredibly easy to make and yet I find lots of folks who think it can only be obtained from a mexican restaurant. Well, I'm here to lead the avocado revolution and say that you, too, can make good, fresh, guacamole in your very own kitchen. And you can do it in about 5 minutes. Read on, intrepid soul.


  • 4 Ripe Avocados, roughly mashed
  • 1/2 of a Medium Red Onion, chopped
  • 2 Medium Tomatoes, diced
  • 2 Garlic Cloves, crushed
  • Juice from 1 Lemon
  • 1/2 Tsp Kosher Salt
  • 1 Tsp Chili Powder
  • 1/2 Tsp Ground Coriander
  • 1/2 Tsp Fresh Ground Black Pepper

Mix it all together and there you have it. I prefer my guacamole on the chunky side, but the texture is directly proportional to how aggressive you are when mashing the avocados. So after a long, hard, day at the office you may end up with a creamier product.

Fetch a bag of tortilla chips and dig in.

Today was the second time I've made this recipe. The last time I halved it and today I 1.5-timesed it. The last time I used dried cilantro leaves instead of ground coriander and today I used a handful of fresh cilantro leaves (chopped, of course). Both times I used canned diced tomatoes. Got all that? :-)

Both times my family loved it. I am not much of a guac eater but they are and they raved about this recipe. Nicely done.


Thanks for the note, Sacha. I like your use of fresh cilantro (a favorite of mine) - I'm going to have to try that!

Totally solid recipe. I omitted tomatoes and added some cumin and one more clove of garlic, but besides that it was the same, and INCREDIBLY popular. Thanks!
