31 Days: Let’s Just Be Honest Day 4: Guacamole

Let’s Just Be Honest … I love Guacamole.  More than that … I love this one particular guacamole recipe.  I love it soooo much that I make it just about once a week.   Here it is:


Yes, that is a huge picture.  Yes, that’s how good it is.  I barely snapped this pic of it before it was all gone!!!  I originally got this recipe from my sweet friend Cassi Wortham.  We knew each other years ago in Denton, Texas, where I”m from.  We were brought back together in the same city 5 years ago.  God brought her and her husband Todd to Austin to plant a church, where my husband Michael and I were planting.  God has taken her through so much in the past 5 years concerning adoption, church planting and grieving the unexpected and tragic loss of her husband.  You’ll enjoy the reading about it all here at her blog: Live for More.  I’ve adapted the original recipe into one that is perfect for our family’s taste and liking, you’ll find my variations in parenthesis.

Guacamole (Montiquilla de Pobre (Poor Mans Butter)

From: Cassi Wortham

Adapted by: Holly Dennis


4 Tomatoes chopped (I use 2)

4 Avocados chopped (4-5 small; or 3 big Hass ones)

2 bunches of green onions chopped ( I use ~3-5 little stalks and chop only to where it starts to get white)

2 TBSP roughly chopped Cilantro (I use more; maybe like 1/4-1/3 of a cup corse chopped and loosely packed.)


1 1/2 tsp. salt (I use 3/4-1 tsp)

2 TBSP Oil (I use canola)

1/3 Cup Wine Vinegar (Go scarce on this at first, maybe ~1 T. less than 1/3 cup and see how it tastes to you, then you can add more wine vinegar or more lime juice if it’s not tart enough!)

1 tsp lime juice (1 whole lime squeezed with a lime squeezer)

Chop and mix together the guacamole ingredients

Mix the dressing ingredients together in a glass jar, shake well to mix.

Mix ingredients with the dressing.

Mash up the guacamole with 2 forks, pulling them against each other, continuing to stir in the ingredients that get pushed up on the sides of the bowl until guacamole becomes creamy and fluffy and wonderful!

Chill at least 1 hour before serving.

Please enjoy this guacamole recipe … our family has had about 5 years with it and have never eaten anything else!!!
