You will never need to buy guacamole again once you learn how fast and easy it is to make your own creamy and dreamy version in less than five minutes. With just a couple of ingredients and a couple pulses of the blender, you have your own Homemade Blender Guacamole to top enchiladas, dips, tacos and tostadas. Taco Tuesday will never be the same.
This recipe is very flexible. It’s easy to adjust the ingredients to your liking. The basics of how to make this is here for you to take it out and spin it how you and your family likes it. Either way, it will be done in five minutes. I am sure your tacos aren’t even done that fast.
You’ll be asking yourself why you haven’t made this before after you taste it! Here are the main ingredients you need:
Avocados: Of course, you need some ripe and delicious avocados. You can’t have guac without them. 😀
Garlic: A little bit of garlic kicks up the flavor a few notches. We usually use two cloves.
Jalapeño: We only use half of the jalapeño so it’s not too hot. If you like a lot of heat, go ahead and add more.
Step One: Remove the pit and peel the avocado. Place it inside of the blender.
Step Two: Add in the jalapeño, onion, garlic, salt, and fresh lime juice.
Step Three: Pulse the blender. Continue until you reach the desired texture.
Step Four: Sprinkle with fresh cilantro and enjoy!
🥑 How to Choose the Best Avocados
Choose the avocado that will be ripe when you want to use it. If you are making a good guac dip today, choose one that is fairly soft to the touch when you squeeze it. That is the best indicator that it is ripe. A more firm avocado will ripen on the counter, but it will take another few days. It can be hard to time them, but try it a few times and you’ll get the hang of it.
❗ Expert Tips
Make sure you have ripe avocados. If they are too hard, they won’t blend well.
Keep the guacamole fresh by keeping it cold and covered if you aren’t using it right after blending.
If you want a chunky consistency, pulse it on and off of the blender and don’t just turn it on and allow it to run. Another option would be to put the other ingredients into the blender besides the avocado and blend. Then add the avocado and pulse a few times.
Chop and prep everything early except for the avocados so you can simply cut up the avocado and toss everything into the blender.
You can store guacamole in the refrigerator 2 days or until it starts to turn brown. After a couple of days, it browns too much and should be thrown out. Just remember to cover it well.
Absolutely! Just use the pulse button for the most control. You are looking for the texture that you like. I like my guacamole pretty chunky but I have friends who choose a smoother texture. Both taste great!
I use plastic wrap on top of guacamole to slow down the browning process. Press it gently on top of the guacamole to keep it fresh and limit the exposure to air. You want the plastic wrap and the guacamole to touch to keep it fresh.
Alternately, drizzle a little lemon juice or olive oil on top of the guacamole can help it from turning brown as quickly.
