I was so excited to make this chunky guacamole with tomato. I’ve been introduced to so many new foods I’ve never had before since starting this blog. Yes, I lived under a rock. My parents were not very adventurous when it came to food. Honestly, it was not until I moved out that I started eating food with garlic. Well, unless you feel garlic powder is the same thing.
Back to this delicious chunky guacamole with tomato recipe. I have friends who absolutely love guacamole and think it’s the perfect party appetizer, especially if you’re planning something for the Superbowl. Since I’ve never made it before, nor have I ever tasted avocado before. Gasp… I know… a rock, remember?
I made this chunky guacamole with tomato when I planned a fiesta party at my girlfriend’s house. Well, it was more like I decided to make baked chicken fajitas in the oven and serve it with some delicious toppings. I served this chunky guacamole with tomato along with my homemade pico de gallo and some Mexican rice. Add in some icy cold raspberry margaritas (from the website She Eats) and you’ve got a pretty good fiesta party!! It’s so fun cooking delicious food to share with friends.
My girlfriend also loves guacamole and says this recipe is to die for. I’ll take her word for it as I also really enjoyed my first guacamole experience and plan on using this recipe again and again.
I decided I wanted to share this amazing chunky guacamole with tomato recipe with my kids. I don’t want my kids living under a rock and if my son is going to travel the world as much as he claims, I had better introduce him to new food flavours now. My daughter loved the “whuackamole” so much I had to scoop some into a separate bowl so I could have some otherwise she would have eaten the entire bowl without sharing!
Chunky Guacamole with Tomato
- 3 avocados
- 1 lime , juiced
- ½ tsp salt
- ½ cup diced green onion (about 4)
- 3 tbsp basil , thinly sliced
- 2 roma tomatoes , finely diced
- 1 tsp garlic , minced
- 1 pinch cayenne pepper (optional)
- 1 tbsp olive oil
Scoop the avocado into a bowl and mash it with a fork. Mash it more or less depending on if you like a chunky or smooth guacamole. Add the olive oil to make a smoother consistency.
Add the lime juice, salt, diced onion, basil, tomato, garlic and cayenne pepper. Stir to combine.
Serve immediately or store in an air tight container in the fridge for up to 24 hours. Guacamole is best if served as soon as it is made as possible but the lime juice will help prevent it from turning brown.
