Who doesn’t love fresh, flavorful guacamole that is as tasty as what you’d get at your favorite Mexican restaurant or Tex-mex chain? This recipe is so easy to make and comes together in less than ten minutes! My Easy Restaurant Style Guacamole will be your new go-to recipe and makes the perfect companion to tacos, burrito bowls, enchiladas, and more!

Making the Guacamole

I like to separate my add-ins from the mashed avocados so I can get the perfect restaurant-style texture. You simply add the avocado, tobasco sauce, lemon juice, and kosher salt to one bowl and mash with a fork until it is fairly smooth with only a few chunks.

Mix the diced tomato and red onion, cilantro, and minced garlic in another, separate bowl for now.

Just perfect in a burrito bowl or served alongside your favorite style of chips! With each hefty scoop, I tell myself it is healthy and fresh thanks to the vegetables, herbs, and healthy fats!

If you aren’t going to enjoy it right away, be sure to cover the guacamole with plastic wrap, pressing it down to the surface of the dip ensuring there is no air gap. This will prevent browning and keep your guacamole looking fresh!
