How To Make Guacamole

This is surprisingly easy to make and super healthy! I am always asked to bring this simple and creamy recipe to parties- it is famous! I prefer this homemade recipe a little chunky and a little spicy- that's where the Frank's Hot Sauce comes in. You can eat this avocado dip with tortilla chips or veggies, on a salad, or right off the spoon! It is the perfect appetizer to bring for Super Bowl or Cinco de Mayo!

  • cutting board
  • knife
  • large bowl
  • avocado masher
  • spoon


  • 10 avocados, small to medium in size
  • 2 Roma tomatoes or 1 cup finely diced
  • 1/2 red onion or 1/2 cup finely diced
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp lime juice or 1 lime juiced
  • 1 tsp Frank's Hot Sauce
  • 3/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder


  • In a large bowl, add the avocados, pits and outer skin removed, and roughly mash. I leave large chunks because I can always smooth out the consistency later if I need to, but I can’t add in more chunks if I mash it too much.
  • Next, gently mix in the remaining ingredients. Taste to see if you need to add in more salt, lime juice or garlic. Depending on the size of your avocados, you may need to add in more spice! If you don’t instantly love this guac the moment it hits your tongue, you need to add in a little more pizzazz!
  • You can eat this guac: 1. Straight up with a spoon! 2. Use it as a dip for chips, carrots, or sweet bell pepper strips 3. Spread on your favorite sandwich or burger 4. Add to a taco salad. 5. Anything really! Just eat it ;)
