The world's best guacamole plated and ready to eat!

Best Guacamole Recipe Ever

January 6, 2009 by Michelle

As I’ve mentioned recently, I discovered some rocking guacamole recently. And I’ve made it a few times since. Like twice in less than a week few times. I may make it again before the weekend. It’s not quite the original recipe from Boudro’s, but rather my version of it and my husband thinks it tastes just as good as the original. Ok, so he tells me it’s the best guacamole he’s ever eaten.

So.

The world's best guacamole plated and ready to eat!

Rockin’ Guacamole AKA The Best Guacamole Ever

We start with four California avocados. If you have decent sized ones, you can use two or three. The ones in our grocer right now are pretty skimpy.

The rest of our ingredients:
3 limes (mine were small, you can get away with two if they have a decent amount of juice)
4 T chopped red onion
1/2 large orange (or a whole smaller one)
1 t salt
4 tomatoes, roasted
1/2 poblano pepper
1/3 c chopped cilantro

So first. That roasting of the tomatoes. It’s really not that hard. I cut them in half, drizzled some olive oil over them, added some dried Italian seasonings (ironic, I know) and put them in the oven at 300 degrees for twenty minutes. I put the seeded and halved poblano so it would get roasted at the same time.

Cut the avocados in half and remove the seed. Pull them out of the skin and dump them in a bowl. Juice the lime and orange over the avocado. Use a knife to cut the avocado into 1/2″ pieces (or so).

Chop the tomatoes and poblano, and add them to the avocado mix. Add the salt and chopped cilantro. Stir the mixture gently, and you’re done.

YUM. Y.U.M.

This is enough to serve about four for a large appetizer. Unless you’re sneaking some while making it. Then it might only serve three. Or two. Because really, when it’s the best guacamole, you may eat more than your “fair” share.

    Hmm, I don’t think I’ve ever heard of putting orange juice in guac…sounds interesting, I’m going to have to give this one a try!

  • Michelle


    Melissa – I know, weird isn’t it? But so totally yum! Let me know what you think!

  • Cookie


    I love Guacamole 🙂 Sounds great for the Eagles games 😉

  • B


    I’ve wanted a good recipe for this thanks.

  • Sydney


    This sounds so yummy! I love guac! I’ll have to give this recipe a whirl sometime soon. The avocados at the store have been a little blah lately…

  • Steph


    Yum yum yum can you send some to me??

  • Kellan


    YUM – one of my most favorite dips in the world – love avacados! I make a yummy one with cucumbers in it!

    Have a good day – Kellan

  • Michelle


    Cookie – You’re just going to keep rubbing that in over and over, aren’t you?…

    B – Hey, glad I can help out. This one is fantastic! (In my humble opinion, of course)

    Sydney – They have been, haven’t they? And I was reading an article recently talking about how the avocado harvest in Mexico had something happen to it this year, so they’re going to be hard to find and expensive. The ones I’ve been seeing have been small and underripe, but… this jazzes them up at least!

    Steph – Umm, I don’t think it would survive the trip. Nor would it probably make its way out the door without being eaten 😉

    Kellan – Me, too! And oddly, Little Miss LOVES avocadoes but won’t touch guac. Weird kid. The cucumber version sounds quite unique (and crunchy?). I’d love to try it.

  • Angela


    Yummy! Sounds awesome. I may make it to go on a turkey pita for lunch this week. I need to get back to healthy lunches and get past the Wendy’s take out LOL!

  • Michelle


    Angela – I promise. This is much better than Wendy’s takeout. And almost as fast! Let me know what you think.

  • Ashley @ Domestic Fashionista


    Yummmm! Hope your SITS day is fantabulous! 😉

  • Michelle


    Ashley – it’s been quite the whirlwind. I’ve never seen so much email, but it’s so much fun, too!

    The Me /The Wife / The Mom – I promise it’s a good one. People I’ve tried it out on really enjoy it – and I hope you do too! Let me know what you think.
