Holidays With Honey – Honey Guacamole


Guacamole is so festive, all green and red!  This will be gone in minutes…

Yield:  3 cups


4 ripe Haas avocados

3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice (1 lemon)

1 tablespoon honey

1 tablespoon chopped cilantro

8 dashes hot sauce (recommended: Tabasco)

1/2 cup small-diced red onion (1 small onion)

1 large garlic clove, minced

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

2 Roma tomatoes, seeded, and small-diced


Cut the avocados in half, remove the pits, and scoop the flesh out of their shells into a large bowl.  Immediately add the lemon juice, honey, hot sauce, onion, garlic, salt, and pepper and toss well. Using a sharp knife, slice through the avocados in the bowl until they are finely diced. Add the chopped cilantro and diced tomatoes. Mix well and taste for salt and pepper.

    I have been try to make the perfect guacamole for more than a year! Not yet there …unfortunately 😦 I’ll try your recipe for sure. Thank you for sharing.

  3. Thank you for showing me exactly what to do with those 4 ripe avocados on my counter. Delicious!

  4. I’m a fan of almost all your recipes, but honey guac? I just don’t know. Wouldn’t it make it super sweet? My fav thing about guac is the pure avocado flavor with a little acid from the limes and hit of smokiness from cumin. I nix the cilantro. A world without cilantro would be perfect for me!
