This a creamy and fresh topping for your fajitas or even as a sandwich, but unfortunately as written it was too liquid. I ended up adding the whole avocado in the end. I suggest using 2 tsps of sour cream and sauce per avocado for a thicker consistency. Also, in this way the avocado flavor is more evident. Thank you for the recipe.-03 Dec 2015
You can easily make seasoning at home and this seasoning is a great example. Instead of buying small packets in the supermarket just put your own spice mix together in a matter of seconds. So are you ready to see how to make guacamole seasoning? Let’s get started!
Every time I think I’m done with all the seasoning recipes there is another that I can make myself.

It is a really easy recipe and I’m certain you have most of the ingredients in your kitchen pantry or cabinets.

Want to see how easy it is to make your own guacamole spice mix? Watch the recipe video with step-by-step instructions so you can follow along.
- Avocados: I like to look for dark green avocados that are really ripe and have a good amount of give when I touch them. This will ensure your guacamoles really creamy!
- Red Onion: Is a traditional ingredient in guacamole. If you are worried the red onion will be too strong simply soak in water for 15 minutes before using.
- Diced Tomato: Add a pop of color to the guacamole.
- Cilantro: I love adding fresh cilantro to my guacamole. If you are not a fan of cilantro simply omit.
- Lime juice: Keeps the guacamole from turing brown and gives the dip the perfect amount of acidity.
- Chipotles in adobo: Add the perfect amount of heat and smokiness to the guacamole.
- Optional Add In’s: Minced garlic, dried cumin, everything seasoning, greek yogurt (for a creamier guac).
HOW TO MAKE SPICY GUACAMOLE
You don&rsquot need any special equipment to make your own guacamole at home. Just grab a large bowl and a fork or a potato masher.
Add the flesh of 3 avocados to the bowl, along with the juice of 2 limes. Mash the avocados with either the fork or the potato masher. I like my guacamole with some larger pieces of avocado in it, but you can mash it completely smooth if you want.
Mash in the salt, cumin, and Sriracha. Fold in the onion, jalapeño, tomatoes, cilantro, and garlic.
Give it a taste and add more of whatever you feel it needs &ndash more lime juice, more salt, more hot sauce, etc.
And if you are one of those people who can&rsquot stand cilantro: feel free to leave it out!
I like to let my Spicy Guacamole rest at room temperature for about an hour before serving. But you can serve it right away if you&rsquore on a time crunch or cover it and put it in the refrigerator for later.

I know a lot of people find cilantro soapy, and if you are one of them, I can tell you that you won&rsquot feel it&rsquos missing anything by leaving out the cilantro. I used to make it without before, and I loved it and I still do, I just think it&rsquos a tad better with fresh cilantro. But that is because I love cilantro! I wouldn&rsquot use any other fresh herbs to compensate, it is super delicious just as it is.

So first up, let’s start with my base guacamole recipe for one avocado. If using smaller avocados, simply use two. Double, triple, or quadruple the recipe as needed and get ready to GUAC!
- 1 jumbo, ripe HAAS Avocado
- 1-2 tsp of Mrs. Renfro’s Green Salsa (or your favorite jar of salsa verde!)
- 3 tablespoons of chopped, ripe tomato
- 1/4 tsp of lime juice for a fruity burst of acidity
Then add the seasoning blend below and any of the below add-ins that rock your socks!
Combine all ingredients, minus the tomatoes. Mash to desired consistency, top with diced tomatoes and dig in! I like mine on the chunkier side — It sticks to the chips better.
Serve up with crispy corn tortilla chips and crunchy veggies of dollop on top of tacos… nachos… anything your heart desires!
- 2 medium green sweet peppers
- 2 medium fresh poblano chile peppers (see Tip)
- 1 bulb garlic
- ½ teaspoon olive oil
- 2 medium ripe avocados, halved, seeded, peeled, and cut up
- 1 teaspoon finely shredded lemon peel
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper
- 2 roma tomatoes, seeded and chopped
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a 15x10x1-inch baking pan with foil set aside. Quarter, stem, and seed the green peppers and chile peppers. (see Tip) Place pepper quarters, cut sides down, in the prepared pan. Cut off the top 1/2 inch of the garlic bulb to expose ends of individual cloves. Leaving garlic bulb whole, remove any loose, papery outer layers. Place bulb, cut end up, on a double thickness of foil. Drizzle with the oil. Bring foil up around bulb and fold edges together to loosely enclose. Place foil packet on the pan with the peppers.
Roast peppers and garlic for 20 to 30 minutes or until pepper skins are charred and garlic cloves feel soft. Bring foil up around pepper quarters and fold edges to enclose. Let stand about 15 minutes or until cool enough to handle. Using a sharp knife, gently pull skins off pepper pieces and discard. When garlic head is cool enough to handle, squeeze garlic paste out of the individual cloves.
In a food processor combine roasted pepper quarters and the garlic paste. Cover and process until nearly smooth. Add avocados, lemon peel, lemon juice, salt, and crushed red pepper. Cover and pulse with several on-off turns until mixture is slightly chunky, scraping sides of bowl as needed. Transfer to a serving bowl stir in tomatoes. Serve immediately or cover the surface with plastic wrap and chill for up to 1 hour.
Tip: Because chile peppers contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with them as much as possible. When working with chile peppers, wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the peppers, wash your hands and nails well with soap and warm water.
Spicy Jalapeno Guacamole Recipe
Spicy Jalapeno Guacamole Recipe: Simplicity is the key to making a killer guacamole. Never overthink making it, simple, fresh ingredients are all you need. Start with avocados that are the perfect amount of ripe.
Contrary to popular belief, avocados actually do not ripen on the tree, they ripen after they are harvested (so if buying in advance make sure you get them under-ripened). You can tell the proper ripeness by doing a quick squeeze test. If they are hard as a rock then they are not ripe enough, however if they are super squishy then they are past their prime. You want the Goldilocks scenario where the avocados are just the right level of firmness, they should slightly yield to a gentle pressure.
I suggest you start by following this recipe to the letter, however, you may find that you have a different preference for the flavor of your guacamole. Some people like to add more jalapenos to make the guacamole a lot spicier while others add extra lime juice to pump up the tartness. Whichever is your pleasure, feel free to experiment until you find the perfect flavor for your guacamole.
Keep in mind, do not add the tomatoes to the guacamole until the very end and then fold them in gently. If you add the tomatoes too soon and mash them up with the avocados then you are going to come out with a very wet guacamole which is not good.
Also, keep some chopped cilantro off to the side so you can sprinkle it on top when you are done with the recipe… this adds a really nice touch to the presentation of the guac!
