what's your guacamole recipe?

Mine is to take three or four soft but not too soft avocados and to cut them up in a medium sized bowl. I then add 1 freshly chopped tomato, and about a half a cup of onions. I then add salt, pepper, garlic, and tapatio (or some other kind of hot sauce, if I'm out.) Then I add enough sour cream to make it creamy. I used to simply cut avocados and add salsa and sour cream... but I've also heard of people using seasoning packet, mayonnaise, and various other recipes. What's yours?

  • 4 or 5 guacamoles, salt to taste, onion powder, crushed red pepper flakes, and a teaspoon or two of water. Mash with a bean/potato smasher. Just simple and fresh!

  • It depends on what I have on hand. Usually I just mash avocado with salsa and plain fat free yogurt, with a squeeze of lime juice.

  • 1 jalapeno, 2-3 avocados, 1 ripe tomato, 1 clove garlic, coarse sea salt, juice of 1 lime.
    dice all veggies.
    start with avocado, mash with fork.
    Mix in rest, taste. add 1 avocado seed to prevent browning.

  • Since there are only my husband and I that eat it, I usually only use one avocado and we finish it at one sitting but here is what we add.

    Avocado, fresh garlic (usually 2 or 3 cloves), one jalepeno without the seeds, chopped tomato, fresh cilantro, juice from one lime, salt

    I don't like onions or we would add some onions, too
