Guacamole recipes

I LOVE chips, salsa, and guacamole! It's no lie when I say I could eat those three things every single day.


A number of years ago, a friend gave me her recipe for her homemade guac. I started making it and it became my "go to" dish whenever I needed to bring something to a gathering and I always received rave reviews.


Here's the recipe, but keep in mind that I have no idea how much it feeds and I don't know exact measurements. It's one of few recipes I make without needing an actual step by step recipe tutorial:


*4 avocados (peeled and mashed up)

*1 can of Rotel (don't drain it)

*Cilantro (I typically use the entire bunch, but I know cilantro isn't everyone's favorite. Tip - you can cut up the stems and use them too!)

*Small red onion (chopped in small pieces)

*One lime (squeeze the juice into the mixture)

*Minced garlic (start with a teaspoon and adjust according to your taste)

*Season Salt (start with a teaspoon and adjust according to your taste)


You mix all of the above ingredients and you have yummy guacamole!


While in quarantine, I started making pico de gallo. I think I've made about 1000 batches of it. (I will get to that recipe in a minute) I started experimenting and now I mix my pico with the avocados. So, essentially I've made my own guac recipe! Yes I will pat myself on the back for that!!!!!



Here's the recipe for my pico, but again, keep in mind that I have no idea how much it feeds and I don't know exact measurements.


*4 Roma tomatoes (chopped in small pieces)

*Small package of cherry tomatoes (chopped in small pieces)

*Cilantro (I typically use the entire bunch, but I know cilantro isn't everyone's favorite. Tip - you can cut up the stems and use them too!)

*Jalapeno (seeds removed, chopped in small pieces)

*Small red onion (chopped in small pieces)

*One lime (squeeze the juice into the mixture)

*Minced garlic (start with a teaspoon and adjust according to your taste)

*Sea salt (start with a teaspoon and adjust according to your taste)

*Distilled white vinegar (start with a teaspoon and adjust according to your taste. I typically use a tablespoon)

*Tajin Clasico Seasoning (start with a teaspoon and adjust according to your taste)




You mix all of the above ingredients and you have delicious pico de gallo!


Recently, I came across a recipe for Tom Brady's favorite guac recipe. I tried it and it's good! It's definitely going to be in the guac rotation.


Good Morning America posted the recipe:


Tom Brady's TB12 Guacamole Recipe


Ingredients: 1 ripe Haas avocado 1/4 cup diced white onion, rinsed and strained 1/2 green jalapeño, seeded and finely diced, optional Zest of 1 lemon or lime + 1 tablespoon fresh juice 12 fresh basil leaves, rolled and sliced into thin ribbons 1 clove of garlic, finely grated or minced 1/2 teaspoon Himalayan salt (you can add more to taste at the end) 1/4 teaspoon ground coriander


Directions: Place the onion, garlic, salt, spices, juice and chilies in a bowl.


Zest citrus into mix and mix well. Run your knife around each avocado lengthwise, carefully cutting down to the pit.


Twist the avocado in half and remove the pit. With the cut side up, slice the avocado into cubes. With a spoon scoop the cubes of 1/2 the avocado into the bowl, mash with a fork until smooth, add the cubes of the second avocado and the basil and fold into mix, mashing slightly but leaving big chunks mostly intact.


Adjust salt and jalapeno to taste and serve immediately.
