Guacamole Recipe With Mayonnaise

This particular guacamole  recipe with mayonnaise was given to me by a friend whose mother was born in Chihuahua, Mexico. My friend adapted the recipe to include ingredients found in the southern part of the United States. Each ingredient is easy to find in a local supermarket. Unlike some guacamole recipes, this recipe does not include the use of jalapeno peppers, so those who are sensitive to heat or peppers can still dig in and enjoy. It is a very simple recipe to make and is just right for the beginner. As long as you can read and measure, you can create this delicious appetizer.

Guacamole With Mayonnaise Ingredients

  • 2 ripe avocados- The avocados should yield when gently squeezed. If they feel like hard baseballs, place them in a brown paper bag and let sit and ripen for two days. The avocados should appear a dark brownish-green.
  • 1/2 lemon, with seeds removed.
  • 1/4 cup of mayonnaise
  • 2 heaping tablespoons of salsa- You may use mild, medium, or hot. If you like guacamole to have a spicy taste, using hot is recommended.
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh, cracked, black pepper

Mayonnaise for guacamole recipe


1. Place the avocado on a cutting board, holding it firmly. Insert a sharp kitchen knife into the avocado until the knife hits the pit or hard seed. Holding the knife firmly in place, rotate the avocado until a circle has been firmly cut along the avocado. You should then be able to easily split the avocado into two pieces. Use a spoon to rotate under the large pit and remove the pit and discard.
2. Using the same spoon, scoop the avocado flesh from the peel and place into a bowl. Discard the peel.

3. Repeat Steps one and two with the second avocado.

4. Using the back of a fork, mash the avocado together until it has formed a thick paste. It is ok if there are lumps remaining, the dip does not have to be smooth.

5. Add the mayonnaise, salsa, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Mix well until all ingredients are combined.

6. Squeeze the juice of the lemon into the combined mixture. One or two good squeezes should be plenty. The lemon juice not only adds flavor, it also keeps the guacamole from turning an unattractive brown color.

Cover the guacamole with plastic wrap and place in refrigerator until ready to serve. This guacamole recipe with mayo makes approximately 2 cups of guacamole or serves 4. Feel free to experiment and add in other ingredients to make this recipe your own. Add jalapeno peppers for a pop of heat or fresh cilantro for an authentic taste of Mexico.
