  • Toast chile peppers in the preheated until browned, about 7 minutes. Remove stems.

  • Mix avocados, onion, and roma tomatoes together in a bowl.

  • Blend canned tomatoes, cilantro, toasted chile peppers, garlic powder, and salt in a blender until smooth. Pour about half the blended tomato mixture into avocado mixture. Reserve remaining tomato mixture for another use or for dipping.

  • Squeeze lime juice into avocado mixture and gently stir until evenly combined. Transfer guacamole to a smaller serving bowl; place reserved avocado pit in the middle to prevent browning.

This was easy and tastier than anything I've made before. I rate it a 5 but my wife and son said 4 - so 4 it is. We will be making it again. We didn't have the arbol peppers so next time we will be sure to find those and that will likely give it the pop worth a full 5 rating. Read More

I made this for my daughter’s grad party and friends and family alike loved it! It was gone within a few minutes from me putting it out. Speaking as someone who has never made guacamole before, I was amazed at how easy it was to make! Read More
