Guacamole is a wonderful addition to nachos, burritos, tostadas, chimichangas, and even tacos. Also wonderful as a party dip served with fresh tortilla chips.

Serves: 4-6


  • 4 large avocados
  • 4 medium tomatoes, diced
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons salt, or to taste
  • 4 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder


  1. Cut avocados lengthwise. Twist to separate the avocado into two sections and remove the pit. With a large spoon, remove the avocado from its shell to a bowl. Mash well with a fork or masher until the avocado reaches a smooth consistency.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and mix well.
  3. Refrigerate until serving.
