Holy Guacamole!

Since the 4th of July (and lots of barbeques and picnics) is only a week away, I thought I’d share my (somewhat) famous guacamole recipe with you. It’s quick and easy to whip up and can satisfy a crowd for only about $10.

Jess’ Holy Guacamole

prep: 15 minutes


4 large ripe Hass avocados
1 jalapeño, seeded and diced fine
1 medium yellow onion, diced fine
2 roma tomatoes, seeded and diced
1 lime, zested and juiced
2 cloves garlic, minced


  1. Dice the jalapeño, onion, tomato, and garlic and add to a large work bowl. Add the lime zest and juice.

  2. Halve the avocados and scoop out the flesh into a separate work bowl. Using a fork or potato masher, squish them until they look like the Hulk in a blender.

  3. Fold the other ingredients into the avocado. Season to taste with salt and black pepper. Enjoy with tortilla chips, fresh veggies, or use it for a topping on your favorite burger. We added pureed chipotle peppers in adobo, goat cheese, and bacon to a freshly grilled burger, then topped it with our homemade guacamole all on a toasted kaiser roll. It was, hands down, the best burger we’ve ever made here at the Little House!

What do you put guacamole on? Do you have a go-to staple for your summer get togethers? What was the best burger combination you’ve ever had?

  1. Potato Masher = genius! We use our mortar & pestle now (I am mildly obsessed with it…) for guacamole and anything that needs a good smash but I love the idea of the masher.

We'd love to hear what you have to say!
