My Table-side "Wholly" Chunky Guacamole

This recipe was inspired by one of the restaurants that I went to in Newport Beach California, where they served us table side guac. It  was very mouth watering and great  joy to watch the server mix all the ingredients at our table and serve us very fresh guac with all the ingredients to our liking.
When you are entertaining guests,  you can pre-chop the ingredients and just keep the avacados to be prepared last. Just before serving appetizers quickly put this together at table side  in front of the guests.  Needless to say it will be a great hit !!

However, if you choose to prepare it ahead of time,  you could do that as well and refrigerate it before serving.

  • 5 ripe avacados
  • Juice from 2 fresh limes
  • 4-5 cloves of garlic minsed
  • 1 large tomato chopped
  • 2 green chilies or fresh jalapenos finely chopped
  • 1 red pepper chopped
  • 1/2 red onion chopped
  • 5 spring onions thinly chopped
  • 1 small bunch of cilantro finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons of crushed dried red pepper or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon of roasted cumin powder
  • Salt to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon of coarsely ground black pepper or to taste


* Chop all the ingredients as shown in pictures.

* Cut avocados in half. Remove pit.

* Scoop out avocado pulp from the peel, put in a mixing bowl.

* Using a fork or potato masher mash the avocado.

* Add lime juice from one lime, ground garlic and red pepper  to this and mix well.

* Add the chopped onions, cilantro,  tomatoes,  cumin powder, salt and pepper.

* Add rest of the lime  juice.

* Mix well until everything is nicely incorporated.

* To prevent the dip from turning brown place the pits back into the prepared dip.

* Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to serve.


* Serve with tortilla chips or can use it as a spread for your favorite vegetarian sandwich.

This recipe yields  ~ 6 servings.
