Guacamole For A Crowd

Guacamole for a Crowd

There are nights when all I want for dinner is a big bowl of guacamole and chips. And since I’m grown up, I have just that.

This is somewhat of a silly post because we all know how to make guacamole, don’t we?

Though we probably all vary with additions and ratios. This is my favorite version. It’s untraditional, as they say, because I love adding diced tomatoes, jalapeños, red onion and lots of lime and salt.

I do prefer the smash up the avocados first and then fold in all of the add-ins because I don’t want smashed onion and tomato, you know? But other than that, it’s crazy easy and simple and normal.

Since we probably all have our favorite way to make guacamole, how do you make yours?

I do love pomegranate seeds added to mine, too.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 15 minutes

Serving Size: 8 to 12

Guacamole For A Crowd


  • 10 avocados, halved and pitted
  • Juice from 3 limes, divided
  • 2 jalapeños, deseeded and diced
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • 1 red onion, diced
  • Cilantro, for garnish


  1. Add the avocados and the juice from 1 lime and a few pinches of salt. Mash up using a fork until the guacamole resembles the consistency that you like.
  2. Fold in the jalapeños, tomatoes and red onion and juice from the 2nd lime. Salt to taste and adjust the lime juice, according to taste (I always add more lime juice). Can be made up to 1 day in advance if stored in an airtight container in the fridge.

Haha, now I totally just want to have this for dinner tonight! Sometimes my favorite inspiration is from really great basics like this guacamole! It looks like perfection!

Now I never make guacamole – I always buy it. Avocados are quite expensive in the UK and I tried to make my own once and something was just wrong with it.

I love all of your additions here though and I think this needs to be made!

Thanks so much for this, sometimes the easiest things are the ones people don’t know how to make!

Oh interesting! I actually went into a London supermarket and saw how expensive avocados were and was super surprised!

You can never go wrong with a big bowl of guac! Love this simple version!

I’d take this guac and chips over dinner any day!

I used to make guacamole with tomato but once I made it with my Mexican friend and she was horrified, explaining that oil and water don’t mix and the same is true for tomatoes (water) and avocado (fat). I also add garlic and TONS of cilantro, including the stems and lots of flaky salt. MMMMMMM now I want guac

I know! People are very sensitive and opinionated about what they put in their guacamole but I like tomato. And I do love tons of cilantro, too!

Simply perfect. Literally crave this on the reg. *two hands up emoji*

On a side note to this note, can you tell me what type of knife you use? I’m looking to add to my collection and as of now I have 3 MAC knives and 2 Shun. I’d love some suggestions for every day use.

Thank you!!

Many nights I do have guacamole for dinner and I never regret it! I’m really not much of a football fan but hey, if going to a superbowl party means eating guac… I’m there!

Yum! I think I could eat that whole bowl myself. In one sitting. While the others are watching football, I’ll casually sneak in a chip. Or twenty.

Nine out of ten of those avocados have my name on it.

GET THIS: there is an Avocado shortage in Australia right now. Avocadoes are legit SIX DOLLARS EACH at the moment.

Still totally worth it for dis guac tho.

HOLY HELL! WHAT!!! This is madness.


Chrissy February 4, 2016 at 12:12 pm

So much better than store bought!
