Looking for a vegan recipe your family will definitely like? They try my Brand New Vegan Guacamole but watch out, it’s so good there may not be any left for you!

I have used guacamole in several of my recipes but finally realized I never gave it its very own recipe post, so here we go.

And it’s so easy to make too.

Of course, what you dip INTO your guacamole is entirely up to you, but I like to cut corn tortillas into chips and toast them in my air-fryer.

Another nice thing about guacamole is you can tweak it to how YOU like it.

  • Red onion can always be used in place of white.
  • Don’t like cilantro? Leave it out, or try some parsley or mint.
  • Don’t like tomatoes in your guac? Leve them out too.
  • Like it spicy? Replace the canned green chile with a little jalapeno or serrano
  • Make it the way YOU like it

All you really need are avocados, not too green, and not too ripe….but ones that are juuuuust right.

And the rest is up to you.

Here is how I make my family’s guacamole and everyone loves it.

I hope you do too.

I like garlic in my guac so I mince a single clove and add it to a small bowl.

Next, I finely dice about ⅓ cup of white onion and mix that in too.

I like tomatoes in my guac, so I used about 8 cherry tomatoes (about ½ of a regular tomato would work too). Dice the tomatoes and add them to the mix.

For my spice or heat, I used about 3-4 tablespoons of canned, fire-roasted green chile (and the canned chile is really not that hot, so feel free to use the whole 4oz can if you want).

But if you decide to substitute them entirely for a whole jalapeno or serrano… you’re my kind of people.

Finally, chop up a little cilantro, about ¼ cup, and stir that in too. Skip this if you are a cilantro hater and no, no judgment here, I get it, it’s genetic.

Now on to the avocados

They have to be somewhat firm but will give a little when you press them, that’s how you know they are ready. I used 3 large avocados, cut them length-wise, and carefully remove the pit. I use the old whack it with your knife and twist method myself, but whatever works for you.

Take a spoon and scoop all that creamy flesh into a larger bowl and add a pinch of salt and the juice from 1 lime. One-half teaspoon of kosher salt is about the right amount for me along with 1 tablespoon of lime juice.

Now we mash – and I use an old-fashioned potato masher or sometimes just a fork. I never use a food processor or blender as I like my guac chunky, not smooth,

Once you get it as smooth or chunky as YOU like it, add the onion/tomato mixture and stir thoroughly.

Now take a taste and add whatever you think is missing, more salt, more lime, etc.

If you WANT to refrigerate it now you can, to allow those flavors to meld for a while, but it’s also good as is, just don’t eat the entire bowl as it’s SUPPOSED to serve 4-8 people.

It can be covered in plastic wrap and stored in the fridge for a few days, but after that, it will turn dark and watery – so eat it quickly!

Hope you like my very simple recipe – and be sure and tell me in the comments how you make yours differently. Got a secret ingredient you’d like to share? Come on then, spill it!

That’s it for now so until next week – have a very Happy Memorial Day.
