This guacamole recipe is the traditional recipe I’ve used for more years than I can count! My sister just recently shared with me that she frequently visits my site to look up this recipe because it’s such a hit…which is why I’ve decided to update the pictures and repost this tried and true guacamole recipe.

Guacamole Tips

  • You want to make sure to pick the perfect avocados. They should be firm, but give just a little when you press your thumb into them. If you buy them at the store like this, but don’t want to make guacamole or use the avocados that day, you can place them in the fridge to halt the ripening process. If you buy them and they are rock hard, placing them near bananas and in a paper bag will help them ripen quicker.
  • Adding the lime juice at the beginning of the guacamole process helps to make it easier to smash the avocado.
  • I love having pieces of tomato in my guac, but if that’s not your style you can leave that part out 🙂
