My favorite green dip!

Guacamole my way! I never used to like guacamole, but when my boyfriend asked for some to put on his fajita, I decided to make it from scratch. Since then I have perfected this wonderful and healthy dip. It is a pretty classic version with a slight short cut. My family and friends all love this guacamole. I have even had people tell me they would buy it from me. But this post will share my secrets for free so that you too can enjoy this wonderful dip. I highly recommend trying guacamole with tacos, fajitas, or any mexican or tex-mex food of your liking. It's super simple to make and your friends will love it!


Serves: 4-6         Cook Time: 0 min              Prep Time: 10 min

  • 3 Hass Avocados, scooped
  • 1 Lime, juiced
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Granulated Garlic
  • 3/4 cup Garden Fresh, Jacks Special Salsa, Medium-Hot
  • 1Small Bunch Cilantro, chopped
  • Salt and Pepper to taste


Combine avocados, lime juice, garlic and salsa. Using a potato masher, mash all ingredients. You can leave it a little chunky or make it completely smooth. I personally like some avocado chunks in mine. Then mix in cilantro and salt and pepper. Enjoy!

Tip- Picking out a ripe avocado at the grocery store can be a challenge. There is always so much produce to choose from. How do you tell the perfectly ripe avocados from the not-so-ripe and overly-ripe? When looking for a ripe avocado, it should be a very dark green/black in color. It should still be firm to the touch, but give a little when you gently press on it with your thumb. It should not be easily dented or bruised. If you cannot find a ripe avocado, buy a hard one and place it on your kitchen counter for a couple of days and wait for it to ripen.
