There are two types of guacamole lovers in the world. Those that love the classic guacamole; very simple mixture of smashed avocado, lime juice and salt. And then there are those that love the loaded guacamole; jalapenos, cilantro, tomato, red onion, and all the spices.

Which one are you? I have always been a fan of the classic guacamole because of it’s simplicity and the avocado flavor just shines through. But….. then I fell in love with this salsa verde version! Even if you *think* you don’t like the loaded guacamole, just wait until you try this because it may just change your mind like it has mine.

Start off with mashing 3 avocados, lime juice, garlic powder, and salt in a bowl. I find that using a fork is the easiest way to mash avocado. And because everyone likes their guacamole different, mash as much or as little as you like. I prefer my guacamole on the smoother side with just small chunks so I mash it pretty well. If you like chunkier guacamole then just mash it minimal. 

Add some chopped tomatoes, red onion, cilantro, jalapeno, and salsa verde. Mix it all up until it’s combined. That’s it.

Serve right away or put it in the fridge for 1-2 hours so it can get cold. I prefer cold guacamole so I always refrigerate it. 

A tip to prevent the guacamole from browning is to take two of the avocado pits and press them into the guacamole. Then you cover the bowl with plastic wrap and then press down on the plastic wrap so it’s against the guacamole. The plastic wrap against the guacamole prevents air from getting to it, and the avocado pit is a trick I learned from watching Food Network 🙂 Not sure how or why it works, but it does!

It’s important to seed the tomatoes or otherwise the guacamole will have too much liquid. To easily seed a tomato; stand the tomato upright and cut straight down the middle. A vertical cut, not a short horizontal cut. Take one half and cut again in half. Take out the white membrane part and the seeds, and then chop the remaining into small chunks.

The recipe as is, is not spicy at all. My 1 year old ate it with no problems. Just see my Instagram stories for the proof 🙂 He had his hand in this stuff as soon as I put it out to photograph ♥

If you want more heat and spice then do not take the seeds out of the jalapeno and/or use the entire jalapeno. You could also add a few dashes of hot sauce as well.

If you want more avocado recipes then you also must try this avocado dip or this game day dip. Both are perfect for a football or Super bowl party, or for a tasty party appetizer.

Ingredients

  • 3 avocado, peeled and pit removed
  • juice of 1 lime (about 1 tablespoon)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 roma tomatoes, seeded and diced small
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped red onion
  • 3 tablespoons salsa verde
  • 1/2 of a jalapeno, seeds/white membrane removed

Instructions

  • In a mixing bowl, combine avocado, lime juice, salt, and garlic powder. Use a fork to mash the avocado to desired texture and stir to combine everything together.
  • Add the remaining ingredients and stir together to combine. Taste and season with more salt or more of the other ingredients, as wanted.
  • Serve immediately with tortilla chips or store in the fridge for 1-3 hours if you want to serve it cold.
  • ** To prevent browning- take 2 of the avocado pits and press them into the prepared guacamole. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and press the plastic wrap up against the guacamole to prevent air from getting to it. The guacamole will stay green for several hours in the fridge.

Notes

This recipe is very versatile. If you want more jalapeno then add more, if you want more spice then add a few dashes of hot sauce, or if you like less tomato then add less.

As always, season with salt to your preference.

You can find salsa verde by the salsa in the grocery store. It is a green salsa.
