Maria’s Guacamole

I thank my friend Carmelie for teaching to make guacamole from scratch! This is my version of this divine dip. I also have it on good authority that adding cumin to guacamole is also delicious.


  • 2 ripe avocados, peeled, seeded and mashed (I like mine quite smooth)
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 1/4 c. chopped or diced red onion
  • 1/2 c. chopped tomato
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • salt & fresh-ground pepper to taste
  • 10-15 shakes of Tobasco sauce (I use red)


Blend all ingredients and serve with corn chips, on salad, on sandwiches, etc.
