      How to Make Guacamole in your Food Processor

      Homemade Guacamole

      If you’re an avocado fan like myself, you probably indulge in your fair share of guacamole. Whether I’m watching it made table-side at my favorite Mexican restaurant or paying a little extra to enjoy it on a fast-casual burrito bowl, I enjoy every bite.

      • 1 medium onion, quartered
      • 1 small jalapeno pepper, quartered
      • 2 Roma tomatoes, quartered and seeded
      • 1 cup cilantro leaves
      • 1 clove garlic
      • 1 teaspoon salt
      • 1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper
      • 4 ripe avocados, halved, peeled and pit removed
      • 2 tablespoons lime juice


      1. Using food processor with chopping/mixing blade, add onion, jalapeno, tomatoes, cilantro, salt and black pepper to the processor bowl. Pulse until mixture is chunky.
      2. Add avocado and lime juice. Pulse until mixture is creamy with pieces. Serve with tortilla chips.

      While it’s easy to order guacamole when you’re eating out, it’s even easier to make it at home. Using your Hamilton Beach® food processor you can whip up your favorite dip in a matter of minutes.

      Using a food processor fitted with the chopping/mixing blade, add onion, jalapenos, tomatoes, cilantro, salt, and black pepper to the food processor bowl. Pulse until the mixture is roughly chopped and chunky. Then add ripe avocados (is there anything more satisfying than slicing open a perfectly ripe avocado?), and lime juice. Pulse until you reach your desired guac consistency - pulse longer for a super creamy guac, or only a few times if you like it on the chunkier side. Pro tip: use a food processor with a bowl scraper to ensure you don’t leave a single ounce in the bowl.

      Making guacamole at home allows you to control the ingredients - especially the salt - and lets you experiment with the flavors. Maybe add extra jalapenos if you like a spicier dip, or garlic for added zing. Make a few batches and find the winning combination. Who wouldn’t want attend a guacamole taste test?!

      Whether you’re serving this homemade guacamole with chips for dipping on Cinco de Mayo or on top of Cuban mojo pork or Mexican burgers, guac never costs extra when you make it at home.
