- Rotel: I love using a bit of Rotel for my guacamole because it adds a lot of flavor, texture and I always have it on had. If you do not have any you could add fresh diced tomatoes instead, or leave it out completely.
- Red Onion: Personally, I love the taste of raw red onion, but a white onion could be swapped in.
- Jalapeno (Optional): If you do not want any hint of spice or making for children then I would reduce or leave out the jalapeno. That being said, I would consider this guacamole dip mild and both my kids (even my 1 year old) eat this with jalapeno in it.
- Lemon & Lime Juice: I think the combination bring out the best flavor, but you could just use lime juice if you want a classic guacamole flavor.
- Sour Cream: This adds lots of creamy goodness to guacamole AND helps it stay fresh longer. It does not impact the flavor and I highly recommend including it.
How to Make Guacamole
- Prep the Ingredients
Begin by dicing your red onion and jalapeno pepper. Remove the seeds and ribs from the jalapeno and discard them. Set the red onion and jalapeno aside. Cut the avocados in half and remove the seed. Scoop out the inside of the avocado and add to a blender or food processor.
- Blend the Avocados
Once all your avocados are sliced and added to the blender, blend on low-med until smooth and creamy. If you want more chunky guacamole you can just pulse until it reaches your desired consistency.
- Combining the Guacamole
Add the blended guacamole and all the remaining ingredients to a large prep bowl and stir to combine. The mixture will be creamy, smooth and not super thick.
- Finishing Touches
Taste the guacamole and adjust salt and pepper if desired. Serve immediately with recipe of choice, or tortilla chips. Enjoy!
I recommend keeping the guacamole chilled in the fridge until you are ready to enjoy it. If serving at a large party try putting the dip in a bowl then placing it in a large bowl of ice, so it will stay fresh longer.
I love eating this creamy guacamole recipe on its own with tortilla chips, raw veggies, on grilled burgers, paired with some tacos or even added to a quesadilla. This dip is very versatile and tons of great ways to utilize it.
Store leftover creamy guacamole in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days, or when it starts to turn brown. Stir before enjoying.
No, I do not recommend freezing guacamole. While technically it would be fine to eat, once it thawed the texture would be strange and it would brown very quickly.
No, I do not recommend making avocado dip ahead of time. Because it has a short shelf life I find it best to make it right before serving.
The secret to green guacamole you ask? SOUR CREAM! I swear I would get so frustrated that my guacamole would go brown within hours, and I finally discovered how to extend the dips life. My adding a small amount of sour cream it helps keep guacamole green for 2-3 days. It usually never lasts that long though!
