Famous Roque Guacamole


Serves 4 as an appetizer

As long as I can remember, our friends have begged us to make our famous guacamole.  Give me a bowl of guac, some chips and a margarita and I am good to go!  We sat on our balcony in Rocky Point, Mexico and did just that one day, it was amazing.  The key to a perfect guacamole is the avocados; make sure they are perfectly ripe, not brown and mushy.  When pushing on the skin it should have a little give and the skin should not be overly shriveled.  Also, when removing the pit, take a large sharp knife and hack into it.  Give it a twist and the pit should come away with the knife.


  • 3 medium, ripe avocados, halved, pitted, and diced
  • 1 medium tomato, cored, seeded and diced
  • 1/2 jalapeno (or 1 whole), minced
  • handful fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1/8 cup diced red or green onion
  • juice of 1 lime
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • pinch garlic powder
1.)  In a medium bowl, add the avocado and mash slightly with a fork.  Add all remaining ingredients and stir to combine.  Proceed to take massive scoopfuls onto a chip and get happy!
