  • 3 large Hass Avocados
  • 1 juiced Lime
  • ½ large Red Onion - Diced Small to Medium dice
  • 2 Garlic Cloves Minced and Pasted Pasting releases all the flavor of the Garlic
  • 1 Roma Tomato ( Slice 4 side off the Roma Tomato and remove the middle section
  • 1 Fresno Chili Minced Fresno Chilies are not hot peppers, they are more of a sweet pepper
  • ½ Guajillo (dried pepper) Minced
  • For Extra Heat add one minced Jalapeno or Serrano Pepper
  • cup Mango Adding ½ cup total works as well. Give both amounts a try.
  • 2 teaspoon Sea Salt


  • First, combine the Avocados and Lime juice. Mash the Avocados, but not too much. You want texture in your finished Guacamole. More mixing to come, so be gentle.
  • Next, add the Red Onion, Garlic, Peppers, and Salt and mix.
    When using fresh garlic, I suggest you paste the garlic using a knife.
  • Add the Roma Tomato last so as not to destroy them from all the mixing. Perform and small dice on the tomatoes.
  • Chef Tip:
    Tomatoes carry a lot of extra water and will make your Guacamole watery if you do not remove the middle section.

The Dry Chilies

  • Split the chilies in half and remove the seeds. Use scissors.
    Place in the microwave covered with water - Set timer for 3 minutes
    Chop the chilies up, then add the guacamole.


Texas Guacamole - Secret Ingredient - Hint: It's Huge


  • Traditional Guacamole does not have tomatoes
  • Buying limes a few days before and allow them to denature on the counter will help them become juicier
  • The brown part of Avocados is oxidation and not harmful to humans. If the discoloring is too great, discard the avocado. 
  • Discolored avocados impart a small bit of bitterness
  • Mangos are best when the outside skin is soft. This means the mangos are fully ripe and will be the sweetest.
