Rachael Ray’s Recipe for Celebrating Cinco de Mayo!

Garlicky Holy Moly Guacamole!

  • 2 ripe small Hass avocados
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 large clove garlic, minced
  • 1 jalapeno, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 small plum tomato, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1/2 small yellow skinned onion, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  • Blue corn tortilla chips, for dipping


Cut avocados in half around the pit. Separate the halves. Pop out pit with spoon, then scoop flesh of avocados into a bowl.

Squeeze the juice of a lemon over the avocados. Squeeze the juice with the lemon halves facing cut-side up, allowing the juice to spill down over the sides of the lemon into the bowl. This method keeps the seeds in the lemon and out of the guacamole.

Add garlic, jalapeno, tomato, onion and salt to the bowl.

Mash and mix the ingredients into a chunky dip using a fork.

1 teaspoon salt

Variation: Sauce can also be used over meat, meatballs, roasts.

A comment Posted By Yehudit Bloch, Minneapolis, MN on the website where I found the recipe:

“I tried this recipe and it was the best tasting chicken I’ve ever made. I have another recipe that I thought was my favorite, but this is the yummiest chicken I’ve ever prepared. I did it a little differently. I did one chicken and left it whole. I sliced onions and placed them in the bottom of my pan, and put a little extra virgin olive oil over them, then the chicken. As in the original recipe, I put some pieces of onion on top of the chicken, and poured a little extra virgin olive oil on the chicken and onions. For the liquid I used the juice of 2 lemons, orange juice, and some ruby red grapefruit juice I had on hand and mixed these in a bowl and added 2 cut up prunes to cut down on the acidity a little. I poured all over the chicken. I cooked it in the oven, covered, at 350 for 2 hours, basting every half hour, and then uncovered for the last half hour. It was so moist and tasty I couldn’t believe it. This is a really wonderful recipe.”
