Bobbi Jo's Perfect Guacamole

15 mins

Recipe by: Bobbi Jo Lathan

Recipe type: Appetizer

Cuisine: Southern


3 ripe Hass avocados (peeled and deseeded)

¼ cup white onion (finely chopped)

½ fresh small jalapeño pepper (stemmed, seeded and finely chopped)*

2 tablespoons fresh cilantro (roughly chopped)

1 clove of fresh garlic (peeled and minced or garlic-pressed)

1 plum tomato (seeded and chopped)

½ fresh lime (juiced)

1/ 4 teaspoon salt and freshly ground black pepper

¼ teaspoon ground cumin (optional)


  1. Git out your mixin’ bowl.

  2. Place your avocado pulp into the mixin’ bowl and either mash with a fork or a potato masher. I like mine more chunky, so I don’t mash it as much as I would, a potato.

  3. Once the avocado is roughly mashed, add the lime juice and stir. Lastly, add the rest of the ingredients and gently stir ‘til blended.

  4. Now, taste a big spoonful (which is sooo good that you wonder why you don’t make this stuff all the time) and add more salt or pepper, if needed.

  5. Serve with some crispy tortilla chips, or spread it on top of a corn or flour tortilla and top with an egg-over-easy, for a little huevos rancheros. Dadgum! This stuff is so good that I even eat it on a piece of toast for breakfast. YUM!


*Use rubber gloves to chop your jalapeño pepper, ‘cause you sure don’t want that hot pepper on your fingers, which might end up rubbin’ your sweet little eyes!
