Guacamole is a pretty standard household recipe but we have found one ingredient that makes it almost impossible to stop eating…. mayonnaise. This might sound a bit strange but it honestly greatly improves the texture of the dip. Will you try it?


  • 3 pitted avocados
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 clove of minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 diced red onion
  • 1/4 cup diced tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon of mayonnaise


  1. Combine avocados, lime juice, garlic, tomatoes, onion and mayonnaise in a large bowl.
  2. Stir and then carefully runt he bowl as you run a knife through the avocados. Keep doing this until you have reached your desired consistency.
  3. Season with salt

Do you have any other secret ingredients to share?

  1. Have my own avocado tree and been making guacamole for 40 years with mayo in . My recipe is very similar to this I add a dash of hot sauce too.

  2. I add a few drops (or more) of tabasco pepper sauce. It gives a nice bite 🙂
