What is an authentic guacamole recipe? A guacamole is a mexican food made of mashed avocado served as a dipping sauce, salad dressing or sandwich spread. It is seasoned with herbs and spices that makes it so yummy to any tortilla chips or garden fresh salad. The mexican would call it “Guac”.

What are your favorite guacamole ingredients? Here are some add-ons you may like to add aside from the authentic recipe.

I make mine a bit different each time. You can add a teaspoon of mayonnaise, coarse salt, lime juice, tomatoes, garlic, cumin, nutmeg, and paprika. Adding mayo can make it so smooth and creamy.

How do you keep guacamole from turning brown? I know some of you may have experience this. But did you know that you just have to leave the pits in it, it won’t turn brown? Yes, that’s the secret of making it stay fresh green and not brownish after sometime.

I could eat guacamole every. single. day.  Real authentic mexican “Guac”!

2 ripe avocados (black in color, slightly soft to the press)

1 tablespoon minced jalapeno (optional)


1. Slice each and pit the avocados.

2. Scoop out their flesh and transfer into a large bowl. Then mash the flesh with a fork. Mash it until it becomes a coarse paste. You can also use a blender to make it so smooth in texture.
