  • Hass Avocados 3 large
  • Lime 1 juiced
  • Red Onion - Diced (Small to Medium dice) ½ large
  • Garlic Cloves (Minced and Pasted Pasting releases all the flavor of the Garlic) 2
  • 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) 1
  • Guajillo (dried pepper) (Minced) ½
  • For Extra Heat add one minced Jalapeno or Serrano Pepper
  • Mango (Adding ½ cup total works as well. Give both amounts a try.) cup
  • Sea Salt 2 teaspoon


  • 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.
