Chunky Guacamole

This is one of those recipes that I know by heart because I’ve made it so much.

I know guacamole is nothing new.  In fact, I’m sure there are thousands of recipes, blog posts, pages in cookbooks dedicated to guacamole.  This is, however, my family’s favorite recipe which is why I’m sharing it with you today.  It may not be new but it has been {dare I say} perfected over the years.

In this family we tend to celebrate holidays before their actual date, usually because I want to go all paparazzi on the food.  So this past Sunday we ate all the Mexican food we could possibly fit into our mouths.  Not only did I want to take pictures but I’m going to be at Camp Blogaway this Saturday and I love Mexican food almost as much as I love cheese.  That’s a lot.  

Whether you will be celebrating Cinco de Mayo this weekend or are just in need of a snack this is sure to impress.  And now excuse me while I get back to all the laundry that I’m trying to wash BEFORE my trip.  I don’t even want to imagine all the clothes I’ll have to wash once I get home.  EEEEEK!  I’ll probably need another little guacamole pick me up in between loads.




  1. I really wish I was going to be at Camp Blogaway!! It would be so fun to hang out with you!!! Maybe we’ll get a chance at Foodbuzz this year? 🙂

    The guacamole looks great. I also prefer mine chunky, and this is pretty much the recipe I use. Down here in MS, they seem to whip it up to a very creamy texture…not to my liking. But, hey, whatever floats their boat! 😉

  2. CHUNKY guac? Doesn’t get better than that!
