The packaged guacamole doesn’t even compare the the awesomeness of making it guacamole at home! Plus it doesn’t take long at all to make a big bowl of this tasty dip! This easy guac recipe is the perfect side dish to your favorite Mexican dinner recipes!
Totally fresh ingredients make all the difference when you are making guacamole and once you try this Homemade Guacamole Recipe you will never buy the prepackaged stuff again!

The only downside to this Homemade Guacamole Recipe is that everyone in my house devours it so quickly that it doesn’t last more than 5 minutes on the table if I don’t make a double batch.
We have taco night a lot in our house and as much as everyone loves homemade salsa, homemade guacamole is their favorite. It doesn’t matter if I am making crockpot chicken tacos, crockpot taco meat, Taco Cups, Chicken Taco Lettuce Wraps, Taco pockets or chicken burrito bowls, guacamole is always going to be made also.
Great party dip!
Dinner time is not the only time we enjoy this delicious dip! It is perfect for serving as a snack with some cheese quesadillas or tortilla chips.

How to Keep Guacamole from turning brown
One of the worst things ever is to go in the fridge expecting some tasty guacamole and finding that it has turned brown. That browning that you see is the oxygen hitting the guacamole and causing it to oxidize. Good thing is there is a simple trick that will help you keep your fresh guacamole from turning brown in the fridge.
When you are getting ready to store your guacamole pour it all into a plastic air tight container. Press the guacamole down with a spoon to remove all of the air pockets. Gently pour 1/2 inch of cold water to the top of it so that it covers the surface of the guacamole completely. Put the lid on top of the container and store in the fridge for up to 3 days.
When you go to serve the homemade guacamole drain the water off the top before scooping any guacamole out of the container. When you are putting any left overs back into the fridge follow the same steps of adding water to the top of it before putting it back in the fridge.
Guacamole Recipe Ingredients
- 4 Ripe Hass Avocados
- 1 tomato
- 1/2 white onion or red onion
- 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
- 1 tablespoon garlic powder
- 2 tablespoons lime juice
How to make The Best Guacamole
Wash and dice your onions and tomatoes and set them aside.
Cut your avocados in half length wise and remove the seeds. I find it easiest to stab the seed with a knife and gently pull the seed out.
Using a spoon scoop the insides from all of the avocados into a large bowl.
Once all of the avocados are scooped out use a potato masher and smash all of the avocado. You can make is as smooth or as chunky as you would like to. I personally like to have chunks in my guacamole.
Add the lime juice, garlic powder and chili powder to your avocado and mix well.
Then add in the diced onions and tomato and gently stir to incorporate into the guacamole.
Serve as desired.
