I love guacamole. And homemade guac is the best. But I really hate prepping the avocados. They just get so messy for me! Either way, the best thing about homemade guacamole is that you can make it however you like. If you like it spicy, add more peppers or jalapeno juice. If you like it a little more salty, add some salt. This is a great guideline!
I've made a slightly different version of this recipe here. This one is still my favorite, but if you're looking to change it up, give it a try!
This continues to be my go-to guacamole recipe, and I have a few additional pictures to share! For one, this is the GREATEST kitchen tool for avocados you will ever find. It does everything, and is dishwasher safe! Click here for info on it:
