Ina has some of the best recipes, one of them is this easy and delicious guacamole!  The dip only takes about 10 minutes maximum to make from scratch and the outcome is perfect.  I love how chunky it is!  This is great to bring to a party with some baked chips or to use for dipping with some of your favorite Mexican dishes.  Enjoy! 


  • 4 ripe Haas avocados 
  • Juice of 1 lemon (a little over 3 tablespoons)
  • 8-10 dashes of Cholula (or your favorite hot sauce)
  • 3/4 cup of red onion, diced 
  • 2 large garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tsp of kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp of freshly ground black pepper 
  • 1 large tomato, seeded and diced 


First juice the lemon and set aside.  Then chop the onion, tomato, and mince the garlic.  After all those ingredients are prepared, cut the avocados in half, remove the pits, and scoop the flesh of the avocados into a bowl.  Immediately after the avocados are in the bowl, add the lemon juice, hot sauce, onion, garlic, salt, and pepper and toss well with a large spoon.  After that, slice the avocados into chunks using a sharp knife until you get your guacamole to the desired consistency (I like mine a little chunky).  Add the tomatoes, toss some more, and then taste to see if the dip needs more salt, pepper, or hot sauce.  Serve immediately or refrigerate and save for later.
