Traditional Mexican Guacamole Recipe
This guacamole uses the traditional ingredients of avocado, lemon juice, cilantro, and onion. Spice it up with jalapeno pepper if you like!
I do have a tried and true, favorite way to make guacamole but boredom set in and I wanted to try something new. I resisted the temptation to add the things to this recipe that I’m so familiar with doing, trying to stay true to the recipe. But I just had to cut back on the tomatoes; a full cup for two little old avocados seemed more like salsa! So I did reduce the tomatoes to just a half cup and I’m sure I didn’t add as much onion or cilantro as called for either. I stuck to the remainder of the recipe faithfully and took the submitter’s suggestion to throw in some fresh minced jalapeno pepper, but considerably less than the one pepper directed. Hubs and I both thought this was pretty good, but just a tad too lemony as I kind of figured it would be as I was mixing this up. The bottom line is that keeping in mind that I reduced all ingredients but the lemon (and should have done so with that too), I think this would be remarkably better if the exact recipe simply called for three avocados rather
Yummy and fresh! Even the kids liked it!
I used this recipe today and the guacamole was delicious. I only added two cloves of garlic to the recipe. I was pleased with the result. Thanks!
Good, but I halved all the ingredients except the avocados and jalapeno. Needed garlic when I taste tested so I subbed garlic salt for the plain salt. Like I said, it was good, but it won't replace my favorite guac recipe.
Full of New Mexico-inspired flavor, this easy chilled guacamole is stuffed with chile peppers, avocados, and cream cheese.
Cilantro and cayenne give this classic guacamole a tasty kick. Serve it smooth or chunky.
