In nature of today, Cinco De Mayo, I wanted to post a delicious and fresh guacamole recipe that is not only tasty, but festive! Olé!

What you will need:

1 ripe avocado
1 tbsp onion, diced
1 small vine-ripe tomato, diced
1 jalapeno chili, seeded & chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 tsp ground cumin
1 tbsp fresh lime or lemon juice
2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
2 tbsp cilantro leaves, chopped
salt & pepper to taste

Simple directions:

1. Take the avocado cut across the center to split in halves.

2. Take the pit out and spoon the avocado out of shell.

3. Mash avocado in a bowl with lime/lemon juice.

4. Fold in all the other ingredients and serve with chips.

(I even like to put the guacamole back into the shell)


One to two people. Definitely triple recipe if making for a larger party.


  1. So delicious!! I love guacamole! And what a cute idea putting it back into the shell :)

    I usually 4 or 5x my recipe when entertaining- it goes so quick!

  2. mmmm that looks so yummy! I definitely need to try that!

  3. oh check you out! i totally cheat on the ingredients and just add a scoop of salsa. i also add salt and pepper and lemon juice...but now not only do i totally want some guacamole, i kind of want to make a non cheater version. ;)
    happy day!

  4. Yum, that sounds so good right now. I am addicted to all things avocado.

  5. Isn't it totally cute to put the guac back into the shell? I love the idea, especially if each person gets one!

    A scoop of salsa would be a great idea to some mashed up avocados. super simple.

    I looooooove avocados too! I like to just spoon them out of the shell with a little salt. And on sandwiches, omg!

  6. Yum! I love guacamole <3

  7. Yum! It sounds amazing and I *love* how you put it back into the avocado shell- too cute!
