DaRecipeEasy Guacamole Alton Brown Recipe – Easy and super delicious guacamole! I love guacamole. It is the perfect accompaniment to many of my favorite foods: fajitas, quesadillas, nachos, tacos. There’s not much that guacamole doesn’t improve. It’s also just insanely addictive with a big ‘ole bowl of tortilla chips. Anyone else notice that the jalapeno is included in ingredients but cannot be found anywhere in the directions?? I added it of course. Just thought it was curious. I thought this was great. I left out the cilantro, too. I just don’t like cilantro. Otherwise I followed the recipe and it turned out very well. Served at a party and there was none left.

Preparation time              Cook time                    Ready in
20 Minutes                         1 Hour                   1 Hour 20 Minutes


  • 3 Hass avocadoes, halved, seeded and peeled (or 4 small ones)
  • 1 lime, juice of
  • 12 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 12 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 12 teaspoon cayenne
  • 12 medium onion, diced
  • 2 roma tomatoes, seeded and diced
  • 1 tablespoon cilantro, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced


  1. Wash and prepare produce.
  2. Put avocado innards and lime juice into a large bowl, toss to coat.
  3. Add salt, cumin, and cayenne, and mash with a potato masher or whatever you can find to mash it with.
  4. Fold in onions, tomatoes, cilantro, and garlic.
  5. Let sit at room temp temperature for an hour, then serve.


I made this per the recipe the first time.  It was really good but I felt it was missing something.  I couldn’t quite put my finger on it but…one time I made this recipe and was out of Roma tomatoes.  So in a pinch I used a can of Ro-Tel diced tomatoes (original).  Well let me tell you this was that flavor I was missing! So my suggestion: follow AB recipe but instead of diced romas just toss in a can of Ro-Tel and your taste buds shall be rewarded ! Taste it !
