Does anyone have a good guacamole recipe? Found one that was 90 minutes to prepare, is that normal?
I was in the store yesterday and they had free samples of fresh avocado (it was so good) and tomatoes. Then when I got home I thought why not make some guacamole because I love it and remembered I've never made it before. I didn't think it would be to complicated but when I saw a 90 min prep time I kind of wish I had bought it already made. So not to complicated please.
I know the feeling, I like to take advantage of avocados when I can also. I generally just mash an avocado, add onions, chopped tomato, and cilantro in a bowl and serve that way. Adding a squeeze of lemon or lime juice which is a great flavor and also keeps the avocados from changing color. One of my favorite recipes for guacamole though is Alton Brown's. Enjoy!

Thanks Karla with a K It sounds easy and delicious. I also went to the Alton Brown site. I don't know why I drew a blank but I did. Thanks again and have an incredible day.
We do about the same. If we are feeling really lazy, we will mash an avocado and mix in our favorite salsa. I have never heard of guacamole taking more than 10 minutes - simple like your post is the best!
90 minutes??!! That's just crazy, unless part of that time is to allow the flavors to meld.
A good one is: mash 2 or 3 avocados, add a squirt of lemon or lime juice and salt & pepper. Mix well, then add 1/2-1 teaspoon of grated onion, a scant tablespoon of mayo (optional), and your favorite picante sauce or salsa to your taste. Stir until well incorporated.
It's very simple and really good. The onion enhances the flavor of the avocado instead of drowning it out. (I know some recipes call for 1/4-1/2 cup of diced onion per 2-3 avocados. That's way too much!)
Sound yummy and easy. I kind of like the ease of the salsa for flavor and tomatoes. Thanks and I thought the 90 minutes was kind of out there and there was a lot of ingredients.
It is. Sometimes I add the mayo, sometimes not. Can't use too much of that either, lol. Simple is best and now I really wish I had some. Sometimes a bowl of guacamole with chips is all that's needed for a meal.
Definitely could make a meal out of it and chips
I wouldn't bother messing up your blender to make guacamole. Avocados are so easy to mash by hand, making a mess in the blender (or food processor) just isn't worth it, IMO. Also, you lose guacamole that sticks to the sides.
Tried this recipe (no blender) with Julie's idea of the muffin and egg this morning (4am) along with my coffee and Coldstone creamer and it was fabulous. Thanks to both of you and going to try some more recipes later with chips or quesadillas.
I spend a good three days to make a good guacamole. 90 minutes is way, way too short. A good guacamole, if you're doing it properly, needs a lot of patience -- something that's rather lacking in today's society, I might add.
It takes me three days to make sauce, lasagna, and several other recipes I just really wanted some guacamole after getting the avocados and couldn't think of how to make it. So whats the recipe? It must be really really good if it takes three days
There's little point unless you possess a guacamole fork and bowl made from pseudophoenix sargentii. Without these utensils, the avocado won't keep for long enough, I'm afraid.
weekend is being facetious with the palm tree bowl. A molcajete is a stone morter/pestle. Soft avos taste better anyway!
If you don't mind, Ptosis, my guacamole fork and bowl were made with my own fair hands during my time in Mexico. With these utensils, I produce the best guacamole imaginable.
Make easy guacamole. Three avocados. 1/2 small onion, 1/4 cup of salsa--medium or hot. One green pepper, one garlic clove, one tablespoon olive oi.
Season with basil, oregano, cumin, salt and pepper. Run thru your blender until totally blended. THis takes about 15 minutes total time.
90 minutes, you must be kidding. In 90 minutes you could probably grow an avo tree. No honestly, I saw Jamie Oliver making guacamole on TV in less than 5 minutes. All you need is a food processor or blender and it's just fabulous. Just google Jamie Oliver Guacamole dip and you'll have a quick and easy recipe. Beware of the storemade guacamole. Some of the stuff doesn't even contain avocado and has ingredients like artificial colouring and flavouring as well as preservatives. Terrible stuff!
I've seen it made fresh right at the table at one of my favorite mexican restaurants. Basically, you get the Avocado, cut it in half, remove the seed and then scoop the avocado out and put into a small mixing bowl. Mash the avocado with a fork, add cilantro, lime, chopped onion, peppers (habanero, jalapeno, or chile), and mash some more. Chill in fridge for ten minutes if desired and add chopped tomatoes right before you serve.
I make a quick and simple guacamole. Peel and remove the pits of two or three avocados. Cut away and discard dark areas. Place them on a platter and mash them with a fork. Add some finely chopped onion (perhaps half a small onion), a little salt and pepper, a splash of lime juice (juice of half a lime or less), a dash of Worcestershire sauce (perhaps a half teaspoon; I use Wizards vegetarian), a small shake of cumin powder and garlic powder (maybe a half teaspoon of each) , and optionally, some finely chopped ripe tomato, a little chopped fresh cilantro, and a heaping tablespoon or two of sour cream. Mash it all together and test it with a tortilla chip. This takes less than 10 minutes to prepare. All the measurements are guesstimates since I just throw it all together and don't measure anything. After you get the hang of it, next time, try the juice of half an orange, in addition to, or in place of, the lime juice.
Ok... after much experimentation and eating a great and unbelievable guacamole at a Mexican restaurant year after year... I tried many. Now, guess what? It is mash the avocados and add a tablespoon or two of your favorite salsa. Voila? Couldn't be easier.
---What!? I made guacamole yesterday and it took less than 90 seconds. I came home, cut half an avocado, put tablespoon of miracle whip, salt, pepper, garlic powder, squirt of lemon and mashed everything together, then put between two breads - ditto!
If it is a gourmet recipe, it is normal. I have two recipes that I use, one is fairly quick and just requires a bit of salt, cilantro, sour cream, and and advocado. The other is more time consuming, about 30 minutes and is in a liquid form, it is very pretty and my most popular version. I have not made it in a while, nor do I have any pictures to show how to make it or to describe the guacamole. I can give it to you if you like.
That would be great if you don't mind I love trying different recipes and don't mind taking the extra time sometimes when I'm not really really wanting something. The sour cream and cilantro sounds great also. Thanks
1 avacado diced, 1/2 cup milk, 1/2 cup sour cream, 2TBS copped cilantro, 1/2TBS salt, 1TBS onion power, 1 small Jalapeño pepper with seeds removed or 3TBS jalapeño juice from jarred jalapeños, 2TBS lime juice. Blend in blender until smooth liquid.
Oohh oohh! Me I wrote a hub for guacamole that is authentic and good and only takes a few minutes!!!
Loved the recipe, pics, and muffin egg idea. Here's a link so others won't have to search

What!?! 90 Minutes!?! That's completely insane! I make guacamole once or twice a week and it takes 5 minutes...tops. The recipe is as simple as can be, completely authentic, and tasty. You can certainly find others online as well, but mine is available under my profile under recipes, if you are interested.
Whatever you do, NEVER spend 90 minutes on guacamole. That's just nuts.
90 minutes seems crazy to me, or that is a whole level of guacamole I've certainly never experienced!
We usually just sort of wing it with guacamole, and it always ends up tasting good. I think the essential ingredients are: avocados (obviously), cilantro, lime, and salt (I think kosher tastes best). You can go with or without tomatoes (I love them but my husband doesn't), and red onion chopped very small can be nice too. Minced garlic is also a nice addition, as is a little bit of cumin. But really you can't go wrong if you have good avocados, in my opinion!
I don't use a recipe, but just throw together the following ingredients and it is delicious: 2 advocados (mash with a fork), juice of one lime, 1 or 2 garlic cloves crushed, chopped fresh cilantro, salt and pepper to taste. Optional: diced roma tomatoes and jalepeno peppers. This takes about 10 minutes to prepare.
Avocados must be soft enough to mash with a potato masher, lemon juice, salt.
Never thought of adding all those other things suggested by other people but now I have new ideas to try! Thankx everybody for all the info.
Avocado being one of the healthiest foods you can find, I eat it often. In this heat we have been having I even make an evening meal of it and it takes no time at all to get it ready.
I scoop out the flesh of one or two avocados depending on the size of both the avocado and the level of my hunger and remove the stones. I mush the flesh with a fork in a small bowl and add some lemon juice from an actual lemon as opposed to the bottled juice. Then I peel and press a piece or two of garlic, add a dash of salt and pepper....all to your personal taste. Stir it all with the fork and I am done in a few minutes. This has a nice fresh taste and if you can find the kind of rice cakes that many stores are now making on the premise they are great for breaking in smaller pieces and using to scoop up the guacamole.
Like to add that I grow garlic in my garden and if you have never tasted home grown garlic, you might want to try it. Plant it in the fall and it is fun to watch it grow because it is very decorative
You can whip up a batch of fancy guacamole in just 15 minutes! I wrote a very long, geeky hub on the subject if you're interested. http://hubpages.com/hubtool/edit/3268842. The secret is Key lime juice. I'm embarrassed to admit it after reading all the helpful responses you've already received!
I have a simple avocado dip, that is quick and easy to make. I can see you have many suggestions if you like check out one recipe here http://miss1magination.hubpages.com/hub … Guacamole. Enjoy!
