This guacamole has so much flavor with garlic, red onion, lime and cilantro and more.

I know, you're probably thinking, what is unique about this guacamole recipe? Well, I'll tell you. My recipe includes a couple unusual ingredients that really make this guacamole special - Cumin and Salsa Verde. Everyone that tries my guacamole, asks me for the recipe. My 2 yr old and 4 yr old love my guacamole too. And this recipe couldn't be easier. The hardest part is getting the seasoning right. It needs a good amount of salt.

I created this recipe a few years ago as part of boxed lunches I sold to office workers. I have never changed it because it is that good. It is a hit at parties and even just a side dish on a weeknight. I often serve this guacamole with my Updated Grilled Ham and Swiss sandwich recipe.

Updated Grilled Ham and Swiss Sandwich


Makes 6-8 servings

4 ripe avocados

Juice of 2-3 limes

1/3 cup red onion, finely diced

4 garlic cloves, minced

1 jalapeño, diced

1 Serrano diced (optional for more heat)

1/3 cup Herdez brand salsa verde

1 tsp cumin

1 bunch cilantro, chopped

Kosher salt or sea salt to taste

Fresh cracker pepper to taste





Slice each avocado in half and scoop the flesh and put in a medium or large bowl.  Add juice of limes and mash the avocado to desired consistency.

Then add the rest of the ingredients.  Mix well and taste so adjust seasonings.  Making sure there's enough salt and lime juice (not too much) is key.

Serve at room temperature with tortilla chips.
