Restaurant Style Guacamole

Have you ever purchased pre-made guacamole from the store? Have you ever made your own? Chances are you were highly disappointed with the pre-made stuff. Am I right? When it comes to good restaurant style guacamole, nothing is tastier or more satisfying than using the right recipe to make it your yourself. Avocados are 10 for 10 at our grocery store right now so we have been eating this guacamole left and right here in the Carpenter House.

Restaurant Style Guacamole is fast and easy. In less than 10 ten minutes and with only one dirty bowl, you can have real, authentic, restaurant style guacamole right at your finger tips!

I have been a fan of the packet guacamole mix in the past. It really isn't too bad, but I know it is loaded with salt and other "bad" things I don't need. And I still enjoy the fresh stuff from Mexican Restaurants a lot more. This is a GREAT recipe for original restaurant style guacamole. Numero Uno in my book! Fresh, fast, and natural. So good you'll forget you are at home in your own kitchen.

Take it from me! Restaurant Style Guacamole is as easy as 1-2-3!

Restaurant Style Guacamole

3 Hass Avocados - perfectly ripe
1 Small Roma Tomato - diced small
3/4 cup Purple Onion - diced small
2 TB Diced Jalapenos from jar
3 TB Cilantro - minced
3 TB Lime Juice - fresh if you can
1/2 tsp Sea Salt
1/2 tsp Cumin Powder
1/2 tsp Garlic Powder

- Slice and dice up the avocado, discard the peel and pit.
- Put all the meat in a large bowl. -Throw in all the rest of the ingredients on top of the
- Use a large fork to smash and stir around the ingredients until you get the consistency
  you desire.
- Enjoy with chips.


- If you like things a little spicier, you can add some red pepper flakes, cayenne, or hot sauce. I am a hot and spicy kind of gal, but I like this Restaurant Style Guacamole just the way the recipe reads. I leave "heat" to my salsa. Spice it up if you like, but not before you try it the way it is:)

-Leftovers? Don't discard your pits! Rather, store the guacamole covered in an airtight container in the fridge with the pits. This helps it from turning too brown...We always think we'll have leftovers but it never winds up that way.

Sooooo Good!!
I bought them at Target.
