Guacamole Recipe With Sour Cream

This creamy guacamole dip is special because it is made not only with traditional guacamole ingredients, but also with sour cream, which gives it extra smoothness and an irresistible tang. It’s so good that people will be asking for the secret ingredient! But it’s no secret that homemade guacamole is very easy to make. It requires no cooking, only simple chopping and mixing. It’s usually made in the summer in hot places, such as the Southwest, as it’s a fresh, cool appetizer to serve before a large meal of spicy food, and a great addition to any barbecue. However, this guacamole can be enjoyed anywhere that the ingredients are available. In addition to the ingredients, you will need a cutting board, a sharp knife, a large mixing bowl, and a wooden spoon. A large fork is also useful to have for mashing the avocado.

Guacamole With Sour Cream Ingredients

  • 2 large ripe avocados
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 tomato
  • 1 lime
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • 1-2 teaspoons cayenne pepper, or to taste
  • 1-2 teaspoons salt, or to taste

Sour cream for guacamole


1. Peel, slice, and mash the avocado in a large mixing bowl. It’s best to first cut the avocado into cubes on a cutting board, then mash the cubes in the bowl with the back of a large fork. Be sure to mash well so all the large chunks are broken up.

2. Dice the garlic clove finely and add it to the mashed avocado.

3. Dice the tomato, remove the seeds, and add it to the bowl.

4. Cut the lime into quarters and squeeze the juice into the guacamole.
5. Add the sour cream and stir thoroughly.

6. Season the guacamole with cayenne pepper and salt to taste, making sure to stir them in completely as well.

7. Serve with tortilla chips and sliced vegetables such as carrots, celery, and cucumber.
