Classic Guacamole

I was sitting poolside with a Corona eating chips and guacamole in Ft. Lauderdale with my college roommate, her boyfriend, and his parents. This is circa 2007. She did not stay with this guy so I have never seen him or his parents again but I still have his mom’s guacamole recipe. I told her how much I loved it and she gave me the recipe and it’s the only way I make it.

P.S. look in the right hand corner it’s the 13 year old recipe and it’s straight from the bag of avocados. That was her secret recipe 😄


I used only 2 avocados because it’s all I had but if making for a larger crowd (which is rare now if days) double this recipe. The original recipe is the doubled version.

2 avocados

Juice of one lemon if very juicy just use 1/2

1 small shallot

1/2 of a Roma tomato deseeded and diced

1 clove of garlic- grated

Small palmful of cumin

S&P to taste

5 dashes of hot sauce

Place avocados into a bowl and squeeze lemon juice then mash with a potato masher. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir with a fork.
