Guacamole Recipe

This easy Guacamole comes together quickly, and is much more tasty, frugal and fresh than store-bought guac.

guacamole My dad loves to have guacamole.  My sister and I grew up having it all of the time, and even to this day, if we are having a family dinner at my house, no matter what the theme of the dinner is (pizza, pasta, chicken, soup, birthday, etc…), he’ll usually bring some avocados and tomatoes to make guacamole.  We love it, and we don’t complain of the array of tasty cuisine.


If you have never made guacamole, it’s time to give it a shot!  It hardly takes any time at all, and it taste so much more fresh than what you can buy at the store.

    I just tried this recipe. It is good, but I find it to have slightly too much lemon juice and salt. But that’s for my tastes. Thought I’d share. Thank you for the recipe!

      Hi Sarah, One of my daughters is a lover of all things lemon and sour, so we tend toward the sour. Feel free to reduce both as needed for the future. The great thing is you are making it from scratch. Thanks for sharing and visiting!

    Something I like to do is also add some fresh, chopped up cilantro and I usually use fresh lime juice instead of lemon. So delicious!

    Just made this last night and it is amazing! It tastes sooo much better than the one we buy which I just realised is actually “guacamole STYLE topping” and has barely even seen an avocado! Will be making this from now on. Thank you!
