    This is an easy to make, flavorful, and slightly spicy guacamole. Previously I never blended the onion, garlic and cilantro into a puree as this calls for, and I think it does a better job of distributing the flavors evenly. It also reduces the amount of fine mincing required. Even if you've got a trusted guacamole recipe, you really should give this a try!


    • 2 rlpe avocados
    • 1/4 cup chopped onlon
    • 2 cloves garllc
    • 1 serano or jalapeno chlles, coarsely chopped (use 2-3 for extra spice)
    • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
    • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt, or more to taste


    1. Peel, pit, and coarsely chop the avocados. Combine the onion, garlic, and chile in a food processor or mixer and process until finely
    2. chopped. Add 1/4 cup lime juice, the cilantro, and 1/2 teaspoon salt and process just to blend.
    3. Add the avocados and process to a puree, or if you prefer a thicker guacamole, add the ingredients from the processor to the avocado bowl and mash and mix with a fork. Taste for seasoning, adding lime juice and salt as desired.
    4. 2. Transfer the guacamole to an attractive bowl and serve immediately.

      This guacamole was excellent. I liked the spice added by the chiles and the garlic...especially in a tortilla as this was served.

        I have tried this and it's delicious. I add some blue cheese crumbles to make it thicker even.
        The thin extra hot style of guacamole from El Paso has Yucatel green Habanero sauce for heat.

        Sometimes a thick Guacamole like this can be served as a salad.
