The Best Guacamole Recipe - Guacamole Dip Recipe

Updated on March 10, 2011

The Best Guacamole Recipe - Avocado Dip

     Guacamole has never been my favorite Mexican appetizer, maybe it was the color that turned me off (Shrek Green) or maybe I didn’t know what the heck an avocado really was either way every time I seen it I cringed. It wasn’t until a trip to the Moon Palace Resort in Cancun Mexico that I even had the thought of ever trying it. Years later my wife and I were eating at Chipotle and she ordered the guacamole because it was advertised as being made fresh daily. I decided to give it a whirl with their hint of lime and sea salt chips and it was actually not too bad. A few weeks later I went to the store thinking I could make my own so I bought a few avocados and a pre packaged guacamole dip packet and off I was to make the world’s best guacamole. This stuff was terrible, so back to never eating guacamole again. Ok, I don’t quit that easy one more try, I began to search Google for an authentic guacamole recipe for Chipotle style guacamole dip and I found several, so I went to work in the test kitchen and what I came up with surprised the heck out of me and everyone who has tried it since. I even like guacamole now, so below I am going to share my best guacamole recipe with you to enjoy, I hope you like it, I think you will.

What’s Inside My Guacamole Recipe?

Don’t get intimidated by all the fresh ingredients it’s really a simple and fairly quick guacamole recipe to make.

The Measurements:

    This recipe is for a 1 to 2 person portion size, for 4 people you should double, and if you are serving at a party or get together you may just want to hi-jack an avocado truck, please do not actually hi- jack an avocado truck! That was meant to be a joke like; you will need a lot of avocados to make that much guacamole dip.

      I will have to try this, minus a few (lot) of those jalapeno's you used. Too much heat for me, but I love the fresh ingredients.

      My recipe has a little fresh garlic and a chopped tomato at the end but this one sounds pretty good. Just finished putting a batch of the buffalo chicken dip in the oven. It is so good.
