Easy Homemade Guacamole Recipe

Janet’s Guacamole : The Dip, The Recipe

This is a Guacamole recipe I created years ago and often make for parties, Cinco de Mayo, or as a yummy starter appetizer for a home-cooked Mexican dinner. Making Guacamole from scratch using fresh Avocados is definitely the way to go for the best tasting flavor – and so easy. Skip the Sour Cream if you want to go for a more healthy dip, it will still taste really good. If you are having this for a party, be sure to double (or even triple for a large group) the recipe. Serve your Guacamole with a big bowl of crisp, fresh Corn Tortilla Chips. Enjoy!

  3. Add Sour Cream and gently mix in with fork.
  4. Finely chop the Tomatillo, then mash up using a mortar and pestle.
