Chunky Guacamole Recipe for Cinco de Mayo
This is one of my most favorite times of the year. Cinco de Mayo is like a true treat for the taste buds. And when it comes to a super simple and delicious snack, you seriously can’t go wrong with this Chunky Guacamole recipe.
I once went on a girl’s trip to Florida and one of my friends declared that she hated guacamole. Oh, my sweet summer child.
There was once a time when I, too, thought that I hated guacamole. But up until that point, I had only tried the baby food pureed type that comes in a plastic container from the grocery store deli.
Once I tried a bite of chunky homemade guacamole on a crispy tortilla chip, my whole world was changed. Fresh, homemade guac is like a million times better than anything you’ll find at the grocery store.

half a medium jalapeno pepper
1/8 tsp ground garlic powder
1 medium lime
salt, to taste
1/4 cup chopped cilantro, or adjust to taste
How to make this homemade guacamole dip
- Remove the seeds from the jalapeno pepper and chop into small pieces. Juice the lime into a medium bowl then add the chopped purple onion and the chopped jalapeno. Next sprinkle in the garlic powder and salt then mix well and set aside.
- Slice the tomato in quarters and remove all the seeds then chop into small pieces. Next add to the bowl. Slice the avocados in half, remove the pit and use the knife to slice small cubes into the avocado halves. Then use a spoon to scoop out the avocado cubes into the the bowl and then mix all the ingredient throughly.
- Stir in the chopped cilantro and mix well. Taste and if necessary adjust any of the ingredients to your taste.
- To store leftovers and prevent the guacamole from browning place a pit into the bowl and cover with plastic wrap and store in the fridge. Another method you can use is to place the plastic wrap directly over the guacamole surface before storing in the fridge.
