Tyler Florence's Guacamole Recipe

4 ripe avocados
1 lime, juiced
1/2 medium red onion, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
1 vine-ripe tomato, diced
1 big handful fresh cilantro leaves, finely chopped
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper [or about 1/4 tsp of Paula Deen's house seasoning]

Halve and pit the avocados; scoop out the flesh with a tablespoon into a mixing bowl. Mash the avocados with a fork, leaving them still a bit chunky. [Instead, I was able to easily peel my avocados, then dice them. I left the entire mix chunky.] Add the remaining ingredients, and fold everything together to gently mix.

Lay a piece of plastic wrap right on the surface of the guacamole so it doesn't brown and refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving.

[I have left the original recipe intact but added my notes.]


  1. Ciao Haley!

    Thanks for the image, i understand better for me unknown recipes!
    we like salads, fruit and vegetables, but we do not use many spices, only lemon, olive oil, salt and pepper
    Have a lovely Sunday!

  2. Try substituting half the avocados with either half a can of black beans or green peas (rinsed and drained). Mash them up a bit to the desired consistency. Yummy and less fat!


Thanks for your feedback!
