Viva Mexico Guacamole

After my first trip to Mexico, I began a quest to find a recipe for guacamole that tasted like the REAL thing! To me, guacamole is the purest form of Mexican comfort food. There is nothing better than a big bowl of fresh guac, warm salted tortilla chips and a frosty margarita on a hot summer’s day (or any day for that matter) Here is THE recipe and it is so simple! The key is fresh ingredients – no bottled lime juice here! Just chopping these ingredients will fill your kitchen with the fragrance of a fine Mexican restaurant. Make a bowl of this just before your guests arrive and they will walk into your home salivating!

This recipe makes a really large quantity, but every time I have made it, the bowl has quickly disappeared and my guests look at me expectantly as if I have more hiding somewhere in a corner of my fridge. I hope you like it!


2 large Haas avocados, peeled and diced
2 large beefsteak tomatoes, cored, seeded and diced
½ large red onion, diced
1 bunch cilantro finely chopped
juice of 2 fresh limes
½ to 1 tsp. good quality salt (we use Himalayan Crystalized salt in our home)


Add all ingredients to a bowl and adjust the quantity of salt. If it needs tweaking, play with the amount of lime juice and salt. This is the key to the recipe.

Serve with tortilla chips and lime margaritas and enjoy!
