Guacamole GF

I have been slightly on the obsessed side when it comes to guac! I have been making this for years and I always make it the same way cause I love it so much! This is also one of those recipes that lots of people ask for my recipe on, so I figured it was about time I got it up! We had some good friends over today for a cook out, and with Don and Caryn it is tradition to make this stuff! Another thing about guac is that I think you have to eat it with blue corn chips! It is just soooo much better that way! Now I will give ya a heads up, this makes quite a bit. If you aren't crazy, die hard, shovel the guac type of people you may want to halve the recipe. Also, I made it for company.....there were 4-5 of us eating it along with other food and we polished it off.....So, if you are making it for 2 people than halve it, otherwise I suggest keeping it just as is!..........If there isn't green goo on your face after taking a bite, then there wasn't enough guac on your chip!


7 Avocados
2 Limes juiced
3 cloves garlic
1/8 of a red onion
1/2 bunch cilantro
Salt to taste


Cut the avocados in half and remove the pit. If you are careful, the easy way to remove it is to hit the pit with the blade of your knife and then give it a half turn. Here is a link to a youtube video to show you how. I don't have the capacity to get a video "how to" on here just yet. :) Remove the avocado from its skin and put into a bowl. Immediately squeeze the juice of your limes onto the avocado and smash it in. This keeps the avocado from turning brown. Finely dice the onion, crush the garlic thinly slice the cilantro and add into the avocado. I like to keep mine a little chunky so you get big bites of avocado every now and then, but smash it all in to your liking. Add salt to taste.


  1. I LOVE YOUR GAUC! Forever and ever amen :)

  2. lol Thanks! Now you can make it!

  3. Oh my goodness, I am a huge guac fan. Funny thing is before I was preggo w/Jaydon, I wouldn't even touch that stuff. While I was preggo I took a liking to it, and now I love it! I am so excited to try your recipe. I just printed it off. Unfortunately I have to wait til I finish off the guac that I just made last night w/a Tastefully Simple mix.
