My Favorite Perfect Guacamole
Prep time
Total time
My favorite perfect guacamole! The addition of corn + hot sauce makes this guacamole simply perfect. This guacamole makes enough to serve at a party or to enjoy as an appetizer with family/friends. It keeps well for a couple days in the fridge if you seal it very well with plastic wrap. Eat with tortilla chips or smother on a sandwich!
Recipe type: Appetizer
Cuisine: Mexican
Serves: 3 heaping cups
  • 4 avocados
  • ⅓ - ½ cup chopped cilantro (lightly packed)
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • ½ heaping cup red onion, chopped (1 small red onion)
  • 2 roma tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, chopped* (optional)
  • 1 cup corn
  • 1½ limes, juiced
  • 2 - 3 drops hot sauce
  • ¾ tsp sea salt
  1. Mash the avocado with a fork (or blend 1 or 2 pulses with an immersion/stick blender to get the guacamole really creamy) in a medium size bowl.
  2. Add the chopped cilantro (start with ⅓ cup if you are not a huge cilantro fan), minced garlic, red onion, tomatoes and jalapeno pepper to the mashed avocado. Stir. Add the corn. Stir everything together.
  3. Add the fresh lime juice, hot sauce and sea salt. Stir. Taste the guacamole if the amount of sea salt and hot sauce is to your taste. I like 3 drops of the hot sauce. Serve with tortilla chips. Enjoy!
1) Use defrosted, fresh or canned corn.
2) Take the seeds OUT of the jalapeno if you are not a fan of spicy food. Leave out the jalapeno altogether if you are sensitive to spicy food.
3) Adjust cilantro to taste.
