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 few pulses of the blender, you have your own Homemade Blender Guacamole using a strong blender or Vita Mix 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 it are here, but you should spin it how you and your family likes it.
Regardless, it will be done in five minutes. I am sure your tacos aren’t even ready that fast. Serve up this Tex-Mex dip tonight for dinner or a snack.
🥑 Why This Recipe Works
5 Minute Recipe – This dip takes literally minutes to make. You can’t get much better than that!
Restaurant Quality – This tastes just as good (if not better!) than ordering at your favorite Mexican restaurant. It’s a lot cheaper too!
You Control Ingredients – Want mild guac? Then use less onion and jalapeño. Or spice it up if you like some heat with your food. When you make it yourself, you control it all.
You’ll be asking yourself why you haven’t made this before after you taste it! Here are the main ingredients:
- Cilantro (or substitutes)
- Lime Juice
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. I like mine with large chunks of avocado.
Step Four: Sprinkle with fresh cilantro and enjoy!
Store this in the fridge if you have leftovers, but it is best to serve it freshly made. Otherwise, the avocados can begin to brown pretty fast. Once you whip it up, scoop into bowls and serve.
When storing it in the fridge, place plastic wrap right over the top of the guacamole. This will minimize air getting to it and browning the avocados.

🥑 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 of ripeness.
A more firm avocado will ripen on the counter, but it will take a 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. Adding a bit of lime juice will help it not to brown as quickly.
If you want a chunky consistency, pulse it on and off with 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 this in the refrigerator two 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 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 or lime juice or olive oil on top of the guacamole can help it from turning brown as quickly.
