Homemade Guacamole

Homemade goodies are healthier and tastier than store bought.  PERIOD!

I don't care what anyone says but to me there is nothing like better than sitting down and enjoying one of your favorite snacks or treats when you know exactly what went into them, and know that it's full of delicious fresh ingredients.

One of my favorite treats is Guacamole and I've tried quite a few, some are good, some not so good and some just plain dreadful, but through all the trying, I finally nailed it by just adding what I wanted and seeing what would come of it. 


Homemade Guacamole

4 medium avocados, halved, seeded and pulp removed
Juice of half a lemon
1 tsp cumin
2 garlic cloves, chopped finely
1 roma tomato, chopped
onion, chopped
cilantro, chopped
1 tsp kosher salt

Homemade Guacamole

Place the pulp from the avocados in a bowl, squeeze the lemon juice over and using a fork mush it all up.  You can leave it chunky or smooth, it's up to you, we prefer smooth, so I really mash it up with the fork.  

Homemade Guacamole

Add the chopped garlic, tomato, cilantro and the salt and cumin.  Mix well.

I then spoon the guacamole into a tupperware container, cover it and let it sit for about 30 minutes, then serve.

If you're not going to be eating it soon after making, then place in the refrigerator.



  1. Hi,

    This homemade guacamole avocado dip is so easy and fun. These rarely eaten fruits are rich in vitamin and proteins and provide prevention in many of the diseases. Thanks a lot...


  2. The great thing about guac is that you can add or subtract a whole variety of ingredients and it'll still taste absolutely delicious.

    I like my guacamole smooth, but I always do it with a fork. Duh, use a hand mixer..../facepalm. I'll have to do this from now on.

  3. YUM! I'm going to have to try this. I like guac. but not all guac is created equal in my book.
