Mario and I love this guacamole!  But, when the kids see it they about die.  "Oh, no...I don´t like it...please don´t make me eat it."  Last night we had Mucho Nachos and Jonah wanted to help with dinner.  He spooned the avocado into a bowl, mashed it, and added most of the ingredients himself.  He even chopped some of the cilantro.  When I told him he needed to taste it to make sure we didn´t need to add anything else, he said, "It´s delicious!".  During dinner he kept asking for more guacamole.  So, if your kids don´t like something, try having them help make it!

Tip:  Add 1/2 of the jalepeños, cilantro and lime juice, taste and add more as your taste desires.

1 or more tablespoons jalepeño chiles, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
2 ripe avocados, halved, pitted and peeled
1 large, ripe tomato, finely chopped
1/4 cup lightly packed cilantro (coriander) leaves, finely chopped
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
Salt to taste

Mash the chiles and garlic with a fork to form a paste.  Add the avocado and mash until incorporated.  Stir in all but 2 tablespoons of the tomato.  Mix in the cilantro and lime juice.  Season to taste with salt.  Adjust other seasonings to taste. Let stand for 5-10 minutes before serving.  Sprinkle the guacamole with the remaining tomato and serve.

Makes approximately 2 cups, depending on the size of the avocados.


  1. Hey Rachelle,
    That's a good idea! I'll have to try the recipe and the helping. Our Christmas card will get to Holland late but better late than never! Merry Christmas!!!

  2. That is a lot like the recipe I grew up on...but we also add a little lawry's seasonings as well. I am pretty sure that is just unique to our family though... Hope you are having a great holiday season!
