Best Guacamole (+secret ingredient)

This is the Best Guacamole!  I know, you’ve heard that before, but there is a secret ingredient that I put in my guacamole that just makes it the best! People always ask me for the recipe. The ingredients are simple, but one secret ingredient just makes a huge difference.

Best Guacamole (+secret ingredient)

Main ingredients….. using 3-4 nice, ripe avocados

3-4 tablespoons onions, chopped fine

1-2 Roma tomatoes, chopped

Lime (use key limes if they are available at your grocery store) juice of 1 large lime or two small

Cilantro (optional)

Salt and Pepper to taste

Secret Ingredient……..  Add to taste!  (revealed below)

All these ingredients are variable in amounts to your liking.



Mix all ingredients together and add……   the secret ingredient!  Here it is….Ta DA!


Tajin (pronounced Ta-HEEN) This is available in the Mexican food section of your grocery store or from a Mexican Food Market.  Sprinkle and mix into the guacamole. Tajin gives it that extra flavor and makes it the best guacamole. If you like it spicy, add a lot, but if you like it quite mild, just add and taste until you reach the amount you like. It is that secret ingredient that really makes the guacamole special!

  1. I love avocados and consequently guacamole!!! I am so making some tonight.

    • I made some tonight, too!

  2. You have NO idea how happy I am to see this! My daughter and I recently went to Disneyland and we bought some sliced mangos to snack on. The packaging included lime slices and a small packet of Tajin. It was beyond delicious! I have been carrying the empty little packet in my purse ever since looking in the spice sections of grocery stores with no luck. I will look in the Mexican section. Thanks for the tip! I’m sure it makes guacamole delicious, as well. Found you at Do Tell Tuesday.

    • Oh, I think I have to try it on Mangos, too! Thanks for the idea! Good luck in finding it. If not at your store, go to a Mexican market.

  3. oh my goodness!!! One of my all-time favorite meals is a huge pile of raw veggies with a big bowl of guacamole to dip it in. I will definitely be trying this. Pinning! Thanks for linking to Tips & Tricks! I can’t wait to see what you link up next. 🙂
