This is the basic recipe for making guacamole recipes. 

You can use a variety of spices, herbs, onions, citrus juice, and tomatoes to flavor your guacamole.  Some people prefer to leave the tomatoes out of their guacamole recipes.

My parents actually put mayonnaise into their guacamole, but this is only what happens in Hawaii - LOL

Instructions:

  1. First, cover diced onions with warm water to tone down the raw onion flavor.
  2. Then add lime juice to the avocados and mash lightly with a fork or to the desired texture.
  3. Add in the diced tomato, chopped cilantro, and seasoning.
  4. Finally, remove soaked onions with a slotted spoon and add to the guacamole.
  5. Stir ingredients together and serve with your favorite chips.

How to Make Guacamole Recipes - in a Blender

Ingredients:

  • Flesh of 2 Ripe Buttery Organic Avocados
  • 1 Organic Roma Tomato (seeded)
  • 1/4 of a Small Organic Sweet Onion
  • 1 Tbsp. of Freshly Squeezed Lemon Juice
  • Optional:  1/2 tsp. Garlic Salt or Freshly Minced Organic Garlic

As you can see, how to make guacamole in a blender is very quick indeed.

You could also use a small food processor to make blender guacamole recipes.  This is a great way to make creamy guacamole instead of chunky.

Instructions:

  1. Scoop out the avocado flesh and add to your blender with the other ingredients.
  2. Blend on low or pulse ingredients until the desired consistency of your guacamole is reached - Done!

Spicy Guacamole Recipes

Ingredients:

  • Flesh of 3 Ripe Buttery Avocados
  • Organic Habanero Paste (to taste)
  • Juice of 1 Organic Lemon or Lime
  • 1 Minced Organic Garlic Clove
  • 1/2 an Organic Diced Jalapeno (seeded)
  • Pinch of Organic Cumin Powder
  • Small Bunch of Fresh Organic Cilantro (finely chopped)
  • Optional:  Sea Salt (to taste)
  • Optional:  1/2 tsp. Organic Lime Zest, Organic Diced Tomatoes, and Organic Diced Red Onions

You can choose from a variety of chilies or hot peppers.  However, the jalapeno is the most popular choice for a spicy guacamole.

The heat level of the jalapeno ranges from medium to hot - less hot without the seeds.  This fruit is dark green in color and then turns red when it ripens. 

Instructions:

  1. Blend Habanero peppers in a magic bullet to make your Habanero paste.  Keep in mind Habanero peppers are one of the hottest peppers around!
  2. Then add the citrus juice to a mixing bowl and add in the avocados - coat them with the citrus juice to prevent oxidation.  Then mash them using a fork.
  3. Add in the other ingredients to the bowl or put ingredients into a small food processor.  Mix ingredients together until desired texture is reached.
  4. Eat with homemade tortilla chips or your favorite chips from the store.

By the way, the Chipotle pepper is a dried or smoked jalapeno pepper.  You can even use a store bought chili pepper sauce or paste as a convenient choice when making guacamole on the spicy side.  However, be careful with the heat level of your guacamole as you don't want to overpower the other ingredients in your guacamole dip. 

The Hass Avocado

The Hass avocado or Haas avocado is one of the best avocados for making guacamole recipes.  It is a favorite because of its buttery and creamy texture - which is important when making a great guacamole.

Avocados are a fruit or a large berry which contains a very large seed. They actually do belong to the berry family.  This fruit is cultivated in tropical climates such as Hawaii, but are also grown in places like California.

In fact, most of the avocados grown in California are the Hass avocado or Haas avocado.

Signs of ripeness will vary from one variety to another.  The Hass avocado will turn black when ripened - while most avocados (in Hawaii) stay green.  However, when ripe most varieties including the Hass avocado will give under gentle pressure when you press its outer skin.

How to Keep Your Avocados From Turning Brown

The Hass avocado isn't cheap, so learn how to keep your cut open avocados from oxidizing and going brown to save some money.

Brush the surface of the halved avocados with good quality olive oil or squeeze lemon or lime juice on the avocados surface to keep them from turning brown.

Store the avocado in an airtight container or better yet in a plastic bag with the air removed

Also, keep the pit in the Hass avocado or in your guacamole when storing in your refrigerator.

You can also chop an onion and place the chopped onion on top of your guacamole to stop the browning process.

This is How Nature Stores an Avocado

It's interesting to note that avocados do not soften on the tree. 

Therefore, an avocado tree can actually be used as a storage area for keeping the avocados once they mature.

Most people in Hawaii have an avocado tree in their yard.  Also, most of the avocados in Hawaii are a lot bigger than a Hass and just as buttery.

Avocado History

The Aztecs used the avocado as a sexual stimulant.  The early Spanish explorers noticed how much these people enjoyed the fruit they called Ahuacati.

That is how the avocado was discovered and how it became the popular fruit that it is today.
