Gourmet Guacamole

Recipe by Chef ShamyCourse: Sides
Prep time


Cooking timeminutes


  • 2 or 3 Ripe Avocados (semi-soft to finger pressure)

  • 1 Tomato (seeded and diced)

  • 1/4 cup diced onion

  • 1 TBL diced Jalapeno pepper

  • Dash of Tabasco pepper sauce

  • Juice of a fresh lime

  • 1 TBL red wine vinegar

  • 1 TBL Mayonnaise

  • Salt and Pepper


  • Cut to the pit around the circumference of each avocado and separate into hemispheres.
  • With care, chop gently into the pit with chef’s knife. The embedded knife will act as a lever to twist and pop out the pit.
  • Scoop the contents of each avocado half with a spoon to remove all of the flesh from the skin, into a mixing bowl.
  • Mash avocado with a fork. Guacamole dip is best hand whipped to leave it slightly chunky.
  • Add remainder of ingredients and mix.
  • Great dip served with tortilla chips or as a side dish to any Mexican or southwestern dish.
