I love fresh guacamole and will put it on almost anything. Chips, tacos, salads, burgers, tortilla soup, they’re all fair game for a dollop of guacamole. Luckily, fresh guacamole is incredibly easy to make with a good blender.
I’ve purposefully made this recipe to be a bit spicier, but you can adjust the recipe to your heat tolerance by adjusting the amount of jalapeno and chipotle pepper or completely leaving it out.
- 4 ripe avocados, peeled and pitted
- 1/2 red onion, cut into 4 chunks
- 1 roma tomato, sliced in half
- 2 jalapeno peppers, de-stemmed and cut in half
- 1/2 cup cilantro leaves
- 1 lime
- 3/4 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/4 teaspoon chipotle pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon cumin powder
- Add all of the spices, salt, cilantro, jalapeno peppers, tomato, onion, and the juice of one lime to the blender container.
- Quickly pulse ingredients 5-10 times on a low speed setting (variable speed settings 2-3), using the tamper to push ingredients down into the blades while blending.
- Once the ingredients are chopped, add the avocados and pulse again 5-10 times on low speed, using the tamper to push ingredients down while the motor is running.
- When everything is thoroughly combined, scoop the finished guacamole from the container and serve with chips, use to top almost anything.
Storage tip: Place any remaining guacamole in an airtight container, packing it down to remove any air pockets. Squeeze a bit of fresh lime juice onto the top, cover with plastic wrap and secure lid. Store in the refrigerator for 2-3 days.
