Authentic Guacamole recipe easy with sour cream

Easy Authentic Guacamole (with Sour Cream)


  • 2 ripe avocados (should be able to press into it- not too hard)
  • 1 cup finely diced tomatoes
  • 1 minced serrano pepper (can substitute jalapeno for more mild)
  • 1/2 cup minced onion
  • 2 Tbsp sour cream
  • 1/2 lime
  • 1 tsp garlic powder (can substitute fresh)
  • dash salt - to taste
  • 1/4 cup diced green onion (optional)


  1. Halve the avocados and scoop into a medium sized mixing bowl. Set pits aside.

  2. Using a potato masher, mash avocados until most chunks are gone.

  3. Add sour cream, tomatoes, onion, and the pepper, and stir. 

  4. Add juice from 1/2 a lime.

  5. Add garlic powder and salt. Don't overdo it; add gradually until taste preference is achieved.

  6. Add the pits to the guacamole mixture, stir well, garnish with green onion (optional) and serve with chips. The pits help the guacamole from turning brown.

Recipe Notes

*Optional Preparation* If you prefer, you can toss tomato and pepper in a food processor for a thinner consistency before adding to guacamole.
