Classic Mexican Guacamole (Your Ultimate Guide To How The Mexicans Prep It)

JULY 30, 2020

Your Ulitmate Guide To The Classic Mexican Guacamole

During my time in Mexico, I learned from a few wonderful chefs the basics of the Mexican cuisine. Guacamole is one of them and, honestly, it is so easy to make. The only thing you need to pay attention to, is high-quality ingredients  as the flavor greatly differs based on your input. So if you always wanted to know how the Mexicans make Guacamole themselves, here is your "how-to" guide. 

What You Need To Make Classic Mexican Guacamole

As I said before, Mexican Guac is super easy to make. And all ingredients are actually available in German supermarkets. So, no need to online shop this time. :) And for the ultimate Mexican flavor, pay attention to the following three rules and I promise, you'll end up with a super delicious "classic Mexican Guacamole". 

High-quality ingredients are key:  Just like in every "Vegan/Raw" dish, the quality of the ingredients is key. Obviously, as there is no cooking involved and no sugar or fat added which can "gloss" or "shine" over the veggie flavor. Therefore, I highly recommend to purchase flavorful tomatoes, high-quality avocados (which need to be ripe when you prep them) and delicious limes. 

Never "cut down on limes":  Limes are a staple food in the Mexican cuisine. Tacos, Salsas and Guac would not be the same without limes. Therefore, add as much as possible. Limes don't only add the ultimate freshness to the dish but also enhance the flavor of the others making the Guacamole mix a "dream-combo".

Green Jalapeños are needed for an authentic flavor:  Another essential for an authentic Mexican Guacamole are green Jalapeños. Even if you don't like spicy food, add a few Jalapeños to your Guac. If you cut them in tiny pieces you will barely notice the "spice" as green Jalapeños perfectly aren't that spicy and they perfectly immerse into the mix. 

In The Mood To Make A Guac Sandwich Like I Did?

I love Guacamole. To be honest with you, sometimes I just spoon it out of the preparation bowl. But if I'm acting more civilized, I love to eat Guac on top of tortillas, as a refreshing barbecue dip or on top of a wholegrain slice of bread for dinner (as I did for example when I took those photos). Here, I added a few spinach leaves as a base, topped those with loads of Guacamole , sprinkled Microgreens on top and finished things of with a few extra splashes of lime and Jalapeño slices.

By the way, if you need a delicious wholegrain bread recipe. This is my go-to and absolute favorite wholegrain bread recipe.

Classic Mexican Guacamole
Guacamole is one of the best and easiest spreads in the world, if you ask me. It's super easy to prep, full of flavor, super nutritious & healthy, and, of course, beyond delicious. So here you go, the recipe for a classic Mexican Guacamole. 
    • -  
      3 ripe Avocados
    • -  
      2 medium red onions (cut into super thin chunks)
    • -  
      6 Green Jalapeños (cut into small stripes)
    • -  
      1.5-2 Limes (Mexican rule: The more, the better)
    • -  
      4 small tomatoes tomatoes (ideally rich in flavor; let go of excess water before adding)
    • -  
      Spices: Salt and Pepper according to taste
    • -  
      Herbs: Cilantro according to taste (cut into small pieces)
    • -  
      Wholegrain Slice of Bread
    • -  
    • -  
      Additional Lime
    • -  
      Additional Jalapeños

  1. The preparation of Guacamole couldn't be easer. All you need to do is place the avocado into a bowl, cut the remaining ingredients into super small chunks, mash everything and add fresh lime juice.
  2. That's it. I personally love to decorate my Guacamole with additional Cilantro, seeds (such as Sesame) or Microgreens. However, this step is completely optional.
