In the interest of readability, I’m reposting this guacamole recipe and my salsa recipe today. I’m also posting quick pink pickled onions.

The guacamole and salsa are made to be, well, made together. They share a lot of ingredients, and since you’re pulling out the food processor for one, then you might as well make the other.

If you came here looking for vegan guacamole or vegan salsa, then good for you! Although both of these are already vegan, I applaud your efforts to double-check. Like chili (not to be confused with chili con carne), lazy omnivores find a way of making most things non-vegan.

If you’re just following my blog for fun, though, then even better for you!

There will be a surprise later this week using all three of these ingredients, so no time like the present to practice, right?

Guacamole Recipe

By M. M. Cassidy Published: February 19, 2013

  • Yield: 1 1/2 Cups

Whoever invested guacamole must have been the most popular Aztec around.



  1. In the work bowl of a food processor, add the garlic, onion, chili, and cilantro and pulse to just combine.
  2. In a bowl, smash the avocado with a fork (or with a pestle in a mortar), adding the lime juice partway through to slow the oxidation process and keep the avocado green.
  3. Add the mixture from the food processor and stir to combine. Salt to taste.
