Sharing is caring!

We love, love, love a great bowl of guacamole, the kind that makes us eat it by the spoonfuls.  This recipe for guacamole is exactly that;  delicious (spoon worthy) and easy to make.  We have been making it the same way for years, and it came about after a trip to Mexico.  The simplicity of fresh ingredients was perfect so we recreated the recipe at home.  


This recipe is simple, just a few fresh ingredients.  No tomato and no salsa added.  It is flavorful and it is creamy.  A little sour cream is added as it not only makes the recipe even creamier, but it helps prevent the guacamole from turning brown.  Brilliant right?  

All that is left for you to add is open a bag of salty tortilla chips and to mix up a batch of margaritas!

Recipe:  Guacamole


2 large and ripe avocados
1 tablespoon jalapeno, finely minced
4 tablespoons red onion, finely minced
1 tablespoon fresh garlic, finely minced
1/4 cup cilantro (leaves and stems), finely minced
1/2 lime juiced
1 tablespoon sour cream
kosher salt, to taste
fresh cracked black pepper, to taste
tortilla chips

How To:

Cut the avocados in half, removing the pit, then dicing and placing into the bowl.
Smash with a fork.
Add the red onion, garlic, cilantro and sour cream.
Squeeze in the juice from half of the lime.
Stir with a fork until creamy. We do not like if too smooth, some chunky pieces of avocado are good.
Season to taste with salt and pepper, then let sit about 30 minutes before serving.

Did you do half a lime worth of juice or the whole lime? I like the sour cream addition for creaminess.

HI Jamie, sorry about that we just fixed. It is half of lime juiced! Enjoy.

My word, what a glorious bowl of guacamole. When I spotted the image on Instagram yesterday, I was hoping to see it here. And voila, you're a holdout no more! So going to try this for the Superbowl. Thank you for sharing the recipe.
