Here is where I take pride! is the one side dish I have spent the most time making and making it oh so good!!! It is the best you will ever have anywhere. But my Nana use to bad mouth me about making it. My Mom like to put powdered garlic in it (which gives it the most amazing flavor) and my Nana would call us dirty girls for adding it. In the end the secret it to dice well, use a lot of tomatoes and the juice from them and the garlic. Never ever ever add mayo...if you do you will be disowned. Just making sure we are all cooking on the same page. I was teased as a kid when I would make the guacamole because I absolutely LOVE avocados. I would sneak into the frig and just eat them plain and leave nothing but a few teeth marks behind. So when asked to make it the family never knew how much I would eat before actually putting it out on the table. Sucks for them, great for me! But here I want to warn you that it will take time to get this one down. Never leave chunks, always use garlic and always taste test before you serve it!

2 Hass avocados
2 Small tomatoes diced
2 Green onions finely diced
1/4 Bunch of cilantro chopped
Garlic powder (to taste)
Salt (to taste)

  • It's OK to buy avocados that are hard, just put them away for 2 days in a dark place and then once they are ripe put them in the frig. There they will last a lot longer and will not keep getting ripe to fast.
  • use a potato masher to mash down the avocados (I never knew it was called a potato masher...we only ever used it to mash avocados or beans!)
  1. Cut avocados in half and scoop out the meat from the skin (keep one pit for garnish)
  2. Mash avocados and add garlic powder (just a little bit at first like 1/8 of a teaspoon)
  3. Dice and add tomatoes, make sure to get all the juice in there. Mash this together with a fork.
  4. Add green onions and cilantro.
  5. Add salt to taste and a little more garlic powder. Mix well with a fork!

Extra help:

This is what I call a bunch of cilantro and a small tomato.

Here's to some good food!
