  • Cut the avocado horizontally or lengthwise. This fruit has a pit hence, cut it all around and then twist it around to open the two pieces.
  • Remove the pit or the seed, scoop out the flesh into a bowl and mash it using a fork or a back of a spoon.
  • Cut tomato in half, remove the pulp and chop it.
  • Chop onions and green chilies or Serrano peppers.
  • Add these to avocado along with salt and lime juice, mix well.
  • Taste and adjust the seasoning. I added a pinch of black pepper, yet the dip wasn’t spicy enough to my taste.
  • If serving right way, add cilantro and serve it with tortilla chips or fresh warm tortillas. I had some left over toasted pita bread from yesterday and served it with guacamole.


  • All the ingredients listed above can be adjusted to taste
  • Few recipes on the web call for garlic as well. Can add it if one like the flavor for garlic. Though I like garlic, I prefer not to use it in guacamole.
  • One of my cousin’s adds dry oregano to the dip and it tastes fine. Use this as a base recipe and adjust or add more flavors to one’s liking.

  1. I love guacamole and can eat it with anything. In fact after seeing your post, I am reminded to redo mine as well as my pictures are really bad. I love how you left the old picture as well in the post to see the growth in your photography!

    1. I was meaning to do it for a long time Sandhya, but never got around to click new pictures. This theme has forced me to do it sooner than later.

    1. Wow, that is quite an observation! Yes, I posted this long time ago when I just got my dslr and felt I got better pictures with my P&S than with a dslr. 🙂 That is quite a change for me, come a long way in my photography journey.

  2. Avocado, being the only fruit allowed in my diet, I love making Guacamole. But, I end up with a chutney-like thing. Yours has got the perfect texture Usha..the pics make it all the more appealing..
