This Mexican guacamole is creamy, delicious, and refreshing. It is made with clean ingredients, and just takes a few minutes to make a batch of fresh guacamole from scratch! Great as a healthy dip with some baked chips or the perfect accompaniment to go along with your favorite Mexican or Tex-Mex meals. Vegan & gluten-free!
Guacamole served in a white bowl.
I had mentioned in my previous post, that I’d be sharing some more Mexican sides. So, Mexican guacamole it is, for today! Let’s learn how to make this easy guacamole dip that requires a few ingredients and minutes to whip up.
A few years ago, avocados were not really a thing in India. I hadn’t even tasted an avocado until I relocated to the US. Besides being popularly used in guacamole, it is used in so many other things in the US.
Now that we moved back to India, I’m so glad to know that things have changed here. We get most of these exotic fruits and vegetables made possible through e-commerce. In fact, they are even available in the local vegetable and fruit markets. This means we can continue to incorporate this exotic fruit (yes! avocado is a fruit) and continue to make guacamole 😀 That is undoubtedly the one thing that I make the most with avocados besides using them in smoothies!
I like my Homemade Guacamole recipe on the chunky side with a few tomatoes, jalapeno, onions, lime, and cilantro.
prep time: 10MINUTES MINStotal time: 10MINUTES MINS servings: 8 SERVINGS
- 4 ripe Hass avocados
- 1/2 cup red onion, diced finely
- optional 2 roma tomatoes (seeded and diced finely)
- 1/4 – 1/2 cup cilantro, chopped finely
- 1 lime, juiced
- 1 teaspoon minced garlic
- salt and pepper to taste
- optional 1/2 jalapeno, seeded and diced finely
Cut avocados in half and remove pit. Scoop out flesh of avocado and coarsely chop it. Place in a large bowl and slightly mash with a fork.
I like mine on the chunky side. Add the diced onion, tomatoes, cilantro, and garlic and toss together with the avocados. If you like your guacamole on the spicy side add some diced jalapeno here.
Add the lime juice, salt, and pepper to taste.
Chill until serving. If not serving right away place saran wrap directly against the guacamole so that it does not oxidize and turn brown.
Serve with tortilla chips.
