Perfectly ripe avocados loaded with healthy fats, lots of flavor and a chunky rustic texture, makes this the best homemade guacamole dip you’ll find yourself making over and over again. 

The secret lies in finding the perfect balance between the acidity from the limes, the sea salt and the spiciness of the peppers. 

Yes, you can definitely make it without cilantro, but If you want to stay authentic you really want to keep it in there. It is lovely!

To attain that rustic chunky texture just scoop out the flesh out of the avocados, pile all your ingredients into a large bowl and gently fold to combine. Easy, right ?

No mashing allowed!

Scoop it over these shrimp tacos or serve with chips and salsa, fresh tomato salsa, black beans or sour cream on the side.

Note worthy: To keep your guacamole from browning or oxidation, throw a couple of the avocado seeds in the bowl. You could even layer a few lime or lemon slices on top before covering with plastic wrap, the acidy will keep it nice and green, like magic!

  1. I have never had much luck with making my own guacamole. I will have to give this a shot and see if I can get it right!

  2. I love guacamole and your presentation looks so delicious. With that said, I can’t wait to try your recipe.

  3. This looks like a great recipe for guacamole. I have not made it myself yet but want to give it a try. I do not like it when it is too smooth like a puree, like that you made it chunky.

  4. Funny story, I hated guacamole before I became pregnant with my daughter. During my pregnancy, that was one of my biggest cravings! Now I can’t get enough! I need to try this recipe, it looks amazing!

  6. YES. Leave that plastic bag guac alone! Fresh and From Scratch is ALWAYS better. This looks amazing!
