The PERFECT Guacamole

1:45 PM

Like most people, I am absolutely OBSESSED with guacamole. I have tried many different recipes for guacamole but none stand as true as the one I am going to share with you today.

Guacamole is one of the finest things in life. A little avocado, margarita and some blue corn chips..uhmmm, yes! or should I say yumm, yes!

The key to a perfect guacamole is to not over mix it. DO NOT I repeat do not blend it. Blending the guacamole takes away from the organic-ness of the avocado.

Ingredients for the perfect guacamole: Brynne's Famous Guacamole:
  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 1/3 cup white/yellow onion
  • 1 spicy jalepeno (optional)
  • 1/2 cup cilantro
  • salt & pepper
  • squeeze of fresh lemon or lime 
The first thing you want to invest in if you want to be a great guacamole maker is a molcajete. You can find one at any Williams Sonoma.

If you don't have a molcajete, thats okay you can use a glass bowl and a fork or spoon. It doesn't work quite as well, however.


  1. Dice onions into small pieces. They don't have to be perfect, or too small. 
  2. Chop up jalepeno into small pieces. Again, it doesn't have to be perfect
  3. Give the cilantro a rough chop
  4. Combine onion, jalepeno, cilantro, and salt & pepper in the molcajete or bowl.
  5. Take a fork or spoon or your pestle and mash them together. You want the consistency to be paste-like.
  6. Next, cut the avocado into large pieces and add it to the paste
  7. Fold in avocado with a spatula- make sure its FOLDED in and not mixed or stirred. You want the avocado to still be chunky. 
  8. Finally, add a squeeze of 1/2 lime or lemon. 
  9. If you like tomatoes you can add them, too! I don't like tomatoes in my guacamole, but by all means, if you like them, add them!
