Classic Guacamole Recipe

Guacamole has long been one of my favorite dips, both for meals and snacks. It’s quick, super easy to make and always a hit of the party.

Classic Guacamole

I have made this guacamole dip literally hundreds and hundreds of time over the years and my husband always rave about it. This is a staple at our table, whenever we are having any Indian and Mexican inspired dishes, or just for dipping. I have tried adding different things to my guacamole, but I always go back to this simple recipe. I really like to enjoy the flavors of the avocado, cilantro, and garlic. It is perfect in its simplest form.

What Do You Put Guacamole On?

I think a better question would be, what DON’T you put guacamole on?! Guacamole is delicious as a dip with tortilla chips and fresh veggies, but also fantastic as a topping to delicious Mexican meals. I also eat it with Indian curries and tortillas. It’s perfect for spreading on toast and burgers, topping your tacos, nachos, filling quesadillas, and wraps. Sometimes, I make guacamole sandwiches too.

So, grab some ripe avocados and let’s get started. Shall we?!

To make this classic guacamole, gather up the ingredients. You want ripe, but not over-ripe avocados. For the best guacamole texture, you want slightly chunky avocado and finely chopped onion, tomato, garlic, serrano pepper, and cilantro. Cut each avocado in half around the pit, carefully remove the pit, and scoop the avocado flesh into your bowl with a spoon.

Mash the avocado quickly and easily with a potato masher or with a fork. Stop mashing when the guac is still a little chunky. Add the other ingredients to the bowl and mix well.

This delicious guacamole is ready to serve, Enjoy!
