Jeff's Guacamole Recipe

Prep Time 20 minutes


  • 2 Medium Ripe Avocados
  • 1/2 Cup Freshly Diced Tomatoes
  • 1/2 Cup Diced Red Onion
  • 1 Clove Minced Garlic
  • 1 Tbsp Fresh Lime Juice (Juice from 1 Medium Lime)
  • 1 Tbsp Finely Chopped Fresh Cilantro
  • 1/2 Tsp Tabasco - Add more to spice it up!
  • 1/4 Tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/4 Tsp Onion Powder
  • Salt and Pepper to taste (Less ripe Avocados need more salt!)


  1. Combine all ingredients except avocados in medium sized glass or plastic bowl.  Allow to marinade for 5 minutes or more. As a shortcut, I sometimes use store bought freshly made pico de gallo for the tomatoes, onion and cilantro.

  2. Chop avocados into bite size chunks and gently fold into previous mixture. If you like a creamer texture, use a fork to mash some or all of the avocados as you fold them in.

  3. Taste and add more salt and Tabasco as needed.  Remember less ripe avocados will likely need more salt to help bring out the flavor.

  4. Serve immediately and Enjoy!
