(Secret ingredient)


    Secret Ingredient Revealed!

    • 10
    • Serves 4
    • Easy



    This is my all time favorite way to make Guacamole, that is why I call it “The Best Homemade Guacamole”. 

    Now there is a trick to making the best guacamole so follow along.

    Now, I know there are a ton of so called AMAZING Guacamole recipes out there. However most are mediocre if you ask me, as I have been making this stuff for years.

    In my pursuit for the best recipe, I have also spoken to many Mexicans who have shared some of their recipe secrets with me. If that is not market research, then I don’t know what is. 


    The Aztecs from the old world have been credited for inventing this delicious dip. The dip was called ahuaca-molli; molli was the Nahautl word for “something mashed or pureed.


    • I don’t know about you but I like my guacamole to be medium spicy, so I will add 1 serrano pepper to 3 avocados.
    • Also I like to make my guacamole in a traditional pestle, however it  will turn out the same way if you decide to make it in a bowl and then mash it with a fork. 
    • Be sure to not over mash the avocados, because you want to leave some small chunks in there. It just tastes better that way 🙂
    • Season well with salt and the right amount of citrus and you will have the best guacamole ever!


    • It is in the ingredients, true Mexican guacamole uses:
    • Serrano Peppers not Jalapenos and White Onions not Yellow or Purple.


    • The ratio of ingredients that are used
    • The right amount of spices
    • The right ingredients 

    How do I know how to make real Guacamole you ask? Well I have traveled to Mexico before along with have visited Old Town in San Diego and ate at every single Mexican restaurant I could find! Asking how it’s made, if that is not market research, then I don’t know what is. 

    I’ve also spent a lot of time testing many of those recipes and came up with our favorite way to Mexican Guacamole at home. 

    Real Mexican Guacamole highlights the avocados and does not allow any other ingredient to take over. That is why I do not add roma tomatoes anymore as they take from the avocados.

    In this house we eat guacamole every week, because we adore Guacamole. And whenever we go down to Mexico or the States we always order it as an appetizer.

    Okay, I’m now ready to reveal the SECRET  ingredient.

    Ready? It’s Fresh Squeezed Orange juice!

    • They’re are immune-boosting, so forget an apple a day eat an avocado a day.

    • They can curve hunger, eating just one and you will feel full. 
    • The antioxidants in avocados are good for fighting off cancer. 
    • They lower cholesterol and help fight diabetes and so much more. 

    If that is not reason enough to eat more Guacamole, than I don’t know what is. I really encourage you to try a few Guacamole recipes to decide what is your favorite!

    Below you will also find my favorite recipe for Cabbage Pico De Gallo it’s AMAZING!

    If you want it more spicy, simply chop more of the Serrano pepper.

    Also you can add a diced roma tomato if you’d like. Also be sure to not over mash the avocados, because you want to leave some small chunks in there. It just tastes better that way 🙂 Want to store it in the fridge for a couple of days, be sure to place the pit from one avocado into the dip. This will allow it to store longer and not brown to fast.
