Ellie’s Famous Guacamole

Love a bit of tasty guacamole as a side for your meal – or a stand-alone snack with corn chips? Okay, you still may want some chunky salsa or fire roasted salsa for those chips, too.

This is by far my favourite guacamole recipe yet.

Fresh, homemade guacamole is definitely the way to complete Taco Tuesday!



1 large ripe avocado

1/4 cup sour cream

1/4 lemon, juiced

1 fresh jalapeño, finely chopped

1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

1/4 teaspoon chopped garlic

1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

A dash of Frank’s Red Hotsauce

Salt & pepper to taste

Garnish with chopped tomato, red onion and jalapeño.


Mash the avocado and add all ingredients.

Optional garnishes – chopped red onion, jalapeño, and tomatoes.

The sour cream gives a rich, creamy texture and the jalapeños and cayenne add a bit of bite.

If you enjoy spicy foods, add more heat as desired with more cayenne and jalapeño.


This guacamole goes well with fried tacos, chicken fajitas or nachos.


Success! You're on the list.
