Guacamole is a classic appetizer dip recipe, made special with a few secret ingredients. Be sure to read through my Step by Step instructions before you begin.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 15 minutes

Yield: 4 servings


  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 3 ripe avocados
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup chopped grape tomatoes


Squeeze the fresh lemon juice and combine in a medium bowl with the salt and cayenne pepper.

Then cut avocados in half and remove pit. Cut halves in half again and gently peel off the skin, or remove the pit by striking it with a knife, then use a large spoon to scoop the flesh from the skin. Add avocados to the lemon mixture; mash with potato masher or fork, leaving some of the fruit unmashed.

Stir in sour cream until blended, then fold in chopped tomatoes. Cover with plastic wrap, pressing the plastic wrap onto the surface of the guacamole, and chill for a couple of hours before serving. It can also be served immediately.

SO good!, Guest Tanya

I love this guacamole recipe. The sour cream adds wonderful creaminess and I love the tomatoes. It makes the dip a little bit healthier. And the color contrast is beautiful too. THanks for the great recipe!
