6. Squeeze out avocado from peel. Make criss-cross cuts in avocado flesh for a chunkier texture.

7. Empty avocado into a bowl (avoid using an aluminum bowl as it has an adverse reaction with avocado.)

10. Serve with tortilla chips and enjoy! Note: If making ahead of time (1-3 hours), cover guacamole with plastic wrap to create a seal directly on top of guac and refrigerate.

  1. Looks fantastic ladies! Like Chris R. I make mine with lime, cilantro and I use red onion, but I also sneak in another ingredient: a few drops of honey – makes it nice and sweet. Yummy! Anyone stock up on avocado’s before the big storm?

  2. I’m obsessed with Guac, and it’s SO good for you! Mine is almost the same except I add fresh cilantro (lots of it!) and lime instead of lemon. The avocado is so versatile, so many great ways to make guacamole! Looks beautiful and now I want some for breakfast 🙂
