Guacamole – Family Secret Recipe



It took me years to get this recipe out of my friend. It was held tightly as a family secret recipe. It is without a doubt the best guacamole I’ve ever had.


3 medium sized, ripe avocados

1 large ripe tomato, about 1 cup chopped

½ small yellow onion, about ¼ cup diced

3 stems cilantro

3 fat jalapeno peppers

3 thin jalapeno peppers

½ teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon lime juice or lemon juice


Wash and finely chop tomato, place it and juices in medium bowl.

Peel and finely chop onion. Put into bowl.

Rinse and dry cilantro. Remove leaves from stems. Finely chop leaves and add to bowl.

Seed and finely chop jalapenos. Add to bowl. Add garlic powder.
