Homemade Guacamole Recipe From Scratch

This traditional guacamole recipe goes great with many dishes. Personally, I prefer it with chips! It is simple and easy to prepare and only requires a few ingredients. Follow this guide to make the BEST guacamole ever.

The #1 Secret to the Best Guacamole

High-quality avocados are essential to making great guacamole! Look for avocadoes with a deeper green color when you’re at the grocery store. Ripe avocados should yield slightly to gentle pressure, just like a ripe peach. If it feels extremely soft and mushy, it may be overripe; if it’s hard and doesn’t give at all, it’s not yet ripe.

From Scratch Guacamole Recipe Overview

This homemade guacamole recipe is quite simple. After slicing and preparing your fresh avocado, simply add tomato, onion, garlic, cilantro, lime, and jalapeno and serve. This is a fantastic dish to make when you’re entertaining or looking for something to complement any Mexican-rooted dish.

Tools to Make Homemade Guacamole

My personal favorite tools to make guacamole are this 3 in 1 Avocado Slicer and this Avocado Masher. While these tools make it a bit easier to make fresh guacamole at home, they are by no means necessary. You can always use a good quality kitchen knife to slice the avocadoes and a fork or spoon to mash them down!
