My husband and I went on a business trip to Mexico years ago. For a company teambuilding workshop, we had to make guacamole in a group, and whichever group's dip tasted the best won the contest. It was lots of fun, but I didn't realize how easy it was to make guacamole. Fast forward; I have been making guac for over ten years and have created it just as I like it. Recently I had a Mexican Taco party around the holidays and made this delicious starter. Visitors couldn't stop raving about the recipe. I hope you love it too. Keep in mind; you can add more cumin because it will give you more of an aroma which is always good in my book.
Guacamole is usually served on Super Bowl Day and Cinco De Mayo. Feel free to check out my collection of Cinco De Mayo recipes you may want to try.

The History of Guacamole.
September 16th is the national holiday for Guacamole. It dated back to the 1500s when the Aztecs of Mexic created a saucy green spread. Read more about it here.
Ingredients used to make this guacamole dip recipe?
4 Avocados (ripe)
3 Roma Tomatoes diced
1 -2 tablespoon cumin (to taste)
One can of chili peppers (mild)
1 ½ of the juice of a lime
½ of a red onion (minced)
1 teaspoon of dried cilantro or fresh 1-2 tablespoon cilantro
Jalapeno (diced to taste)
salt and pepper to taste
How to make this guacamole dip recipe?
1. Cut open and remove the pit from the avocado, and using a large spoon scoop out the avocado inside and place in a bowl.
2. Add lime juice, and using the back of the fork, press the avocados until they are combined.
3. Add minced red onion, cumin, chili peppers, cilantro, and diced tomatoes. Mix well. Add salt and pepper to taste.
4. Cover with plastic wrap by pressing out all the air so the plastic wrap is touching the guacamole. This will prevent the avocados from turning brown—place in the fridge for 1 hour. Then pull out and enjoy.
Tips and other things to add to the Guacamole recipe:
- More Flavorful - You can add more cumin to boost the scent while eating.
- Salter - If you use salt, check that your nachos aren't too salty. Adding less salt if your nachos are too salty helps balance the flavor.
- Add Garlic - There are a lot of recipes that use garlic. However, I found that using garlic and letting it sit for an hour or overnight creates a pungent taste and overpowers the guacamole, so I leave it out. If you don't mind this flavor, add 1 minced garlic clove.
- Spicier - You can easily add more jalapenos to your liking.
