Mac's Guacamole

This really isn't MAC's guacamole, but I think of it that way since he is always the one who makes it; and he does a killer job at it, too!  He usually makes this to go in his fantastic 7 layer dip (which I'll give you the 7 layers for at the end of this post).  The guacamole recipe is off of


  • 3 avocados - peeled, pitted, and mashed
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 roma (plum) tomatoes, diced
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 pinch ground cayenne pepper


In a medium bowl, mash together the avocados, lime juice, and salt. Mix in onion, cilantro, tomatoes, and garlic. Stir in cayenne pepper. Refrigerate 1 hour for best flavor, or serve immediately.

7 layer dip:

The recipe calls for it to be warmed up, but Mac likes to serve it cold, and everyone likes it that way.  Goes great with the Tostitos scoops!  Just spread each layer in a 9x13 pan and serve.

1 can Refried Beans
8 oz. sour cream
Guacamole (1 recipe)
2 c. Colby Jack cheese, shredded
2-3 Roma tomatoes, diced
1 can sliced black olives
Jalapenos (optional)
