Homemade Guacamole Recipe

This Homemade Guacamole Recipe features all of the traditional guacamole flavors, with an extra boost from one of our favorite seasoning blends. If you still buy store-made guacamole, try this! Making your own is so much better!

Homemade Guacamole Dip

Guacamole is great not only for a dip, but we like to heap it on top of tacos, enchiladas, chilaquiles, and tostadas too. It is simple to make at home, and fresh guacamole tastes so much better than store-bought. There’s a reason why tableside guac is so popular at the best Mexican restaurants out there!

This dip features classic guacamole flavors, with an added kick from one of my favorite new seasoning mixes, Holy Guacamole from The Spice Guy.

Homemade Guacamole FAQ

How do you store leftovers?

Guacamole doesn’t keep all that well. The lime juice helps a bit, but I’d plan to just make what you plan on eating. If you DO wind up with some left, put some plastic wrap on top of the guacamole and press down so it is physically touching the dip. You want as little air as possible near the guac. Then, keep in the fridge and eat it the next day for the best results.

Are there any substitutions for Holy Guacamole?

Nope! But you can omit it, and you’ll still have delicious homemade guacamole ready to be dipped into. The Holy Guacamole is just extra. 😉
