Today I’m sharing the recipe for my favorite go-to DIY Guacamole Seasoning. Make a little… or a lot! Whatever you do don’t make guacamole without it!

Rock Out with Your Guac Out!

I did it.

I swore I’d never have the patience for it… swore it was against my religion to do so… promised myself it needed to happen organically, without an inkling of structure but…

I finally measured out the ingredients for myguacamole seasoning mix!!!

Wait ! What did you think I was going to say!? Holy cow people!

Anyways, I did it. In a shot-glass no less, and endured the mostjudge-yof eye-brow raises from my husband just so I could finally give you guys an accurate description of how I take an avocado and turn it into something undeniably wonderful. Something that not only has to be licked clean from the bowl, but also any surface it touches. Like the fork you’ll use to mash it. I used to mash my avocados with a butter knife. But licking them was a tad dangerous… And here I go again on a lovely tangent.

Jenn and knives: a recipe for disaster. Though lately the bulk of my injuries are from things like running into the frame of my bed, getting overzealous with the scissors, and poking myself in the eye with a mascara wand.

Wait! Crap! Guacamole! We were talking about guacamole! After all, it’s NATIONAL GUACAMOLE DAY! *throws avocado-shaped confetti* Let’s do this!

Guacamole FTW!

So first up, let’s start with my base guacamole recipe for one avocado. If using smaller avocados, simply use two. Double, triple, or quadruple the recipe as needed and get ready to GUAC!


  • 1 jumbo, ripe HAAS Avocado
  • 1-2 tsp of Mrs. Renfro’s Green Salsa (or your favorite jar of salsa verde!)
  • 3 tablespoons of chopped, ripe tomato
  • 1/4 tsp of lime juice for a fruity burst of acidity

Then add the seasoning blend below and any of the below add-ins that rock your socks!


  • chopped red onion
  • fresh, diced jalapeños
  • fresh cilantro


Combine all ingredients, minus the tomatoes. Mash to desired consistency, top with diced tomatoes and dig in! I like mine on the chunkier side — It sticks to the chips better.

Serve up with crispy corn tortilla chips and crunchy veggies of dollop on top of tacos… nachos… anything your heart desires!

so . . . how was it?

AMAZING! Duh! The photos came out a little less than stellar because I had a very anxious Marine drooling over the bowl while I tried to get the perfect shot. What we lack in patience we make up for in freaking amazing guacamole. It’s a gift and a curse, really.

Your homework? Go make some guac today!

I’m off to plop myself in front of the fan with Bullet the Ferret — our AC is broken and Fall weather hasn’t exactly kicked in yet. I’m melting.
