This is a Traditional way to make Guacamole, that is why I named this recipe “Mexican Guacamole”.
You can adjust the heat by the amount of Serrano Peppers you decide to add to it.
I like my gucample to be medium spicy, so I add will add 1 serrano pepper to 3 avocados. Also you can make the guacamole in a traditional pestle like i did or you can make it in a large bowl with a fork. Both ways work well!
HOW GUACAMOLE IS MADE?
What makes a guacamole authentic is the ingredients, Mexican guacamole uses:
- Serrano Peppers not Jalapeno
- White Onions not Yellow or Purple
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.
WHO INVENTED GUACAMOLE?
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’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.
Guacamole not only goes well with nachos, it also goes good in a burrito on tacos and pretty much alongside any type of Mexican meal.
Also you can mash the white onion before you mash the avocados or you can leave the white onion in small chunks.
Just be sure to not over mash the avocados, because you want to leave some small chunks in there. It just tastes better that way 🙂
I really encourage you to try a few Guacamole recipes to decide what is your favorite!
Also if your looking for another Mexican snack food that can work along with this guacamole.

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.
