This is my basic, go to, never fail- guacamole recipe. Enjoy with tortilla chips, tacos or fresh cut guacamole2


  • 5-6 ripe avocados
  • 1/2 onion, finely chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed and divided
  • 2 tomatoes, diced and divided
  • Bunch of cilantro, finely chopped
  • Lemon juice and/or some lime juice
  • Salt to taste


  • Heat some olive oil in skillet
  • Add onion and sauté until mostly done
  • Add garlic (careful not to let it brown as it turns bitter) and half of the diced tomatoes and sauté for 30-60 seconds more
  • Remove from heat
  • Peel/core avocadoes and mash coarsely with a fork
  • Add the sautéed onion/garlic/tomato to the avocados along with the rest of the fresh chopped tomatoes, chopped cilantro, lemon juice, salt
  • Add some additional fresh crushed garlic if desired, salt and more lemon juice to taste
  • Mix to desired consistency, serve fresh or let sit and flavors will meld

Serve with tortilla chips or cut fresh vegetables!blog guacamole 1

Super mom tip: don’t have time to chop onions and tomatoes and cilantro? Get some Pico de Gallo and save a step or three!dit-elle-Esther
