We call this recipe “Guacamo-Lesch” because Jim and I both make this: sometimes together, sometimes separately, upping the ante to see if either of us can tweak it any.  Just to get you motivated, I reached out to some Framily to review our guacamole:

“The absolute perfect balance of fresh avocados, cilantro, lime, and salt.  Now where’s the margarita?”  -Amy Lesch
“The most authentic homemade guacamole on the East Coast. . .”  -Cal Rowan
“I always look forward to making memories and guacamole with Pamela when she comes to visit us.  Her guacamole is better than that of any Mexican restaurant.”  -Jules Rowan

Gather your tools and ingredients.  We love using a molcajete, a Mexican volcanic rock that is used as a mortar and pestle.  You can find it on

Ingredients are listed in the order they are placed into the molcajete:

1/2 to 1 tsp. kosher salt

3 cloves pressed garlic

1/3 c. chopped cilantro

1/3 c. chopped red onion

1/4 of a small-ish habanero pepper diced finely.  These peppers are tricky and can be extremely spicy.  Be careful to wash your hands and not touch your face after handling the habanero.

2 ripe avocados (soft to the touch).  Slice open, remove seeds.  Set aside.

Pour salt in bowl first. . . the salt must touch the rock.  Finish layering the other ingredients, but not the avocado yet.  Make a paste in the bottom of the bowl.  First it will look like this. . .

Slice your avocado and place it into the bowl and continue to grind it.  Add 1 Tablespoon lime or lemon juice to give it some liquid workability and flavor.  Add the remaining half of your other chopped ingredients and stir together.
