Improvised guacamole

A quick improvised twist on the original recipe – my improvised guacamole!

Everyone loves guacamole! Guac is a favorite side dish or dip for many. The original recipe is very well known – you can also check it on Martha Stuarts’s webpage hereSpicy and typically Mexican, it’s a great addition to your table.

My improvised guacamole is a very quick adaptation of the original recipe. The original features mostly avocado and is a little bit spicy. I have a sensitive stomach these days and spicy food is not my choice for now. So, I decided to improvise a bit and twist this recipe to my taste.

Also, I used what I had left in the fridge for my improvised guacamole, so I put a lot more tomato and less avocado than in the typical recipe. This way, it looks a bit more like a salad and less like a side dish. You can still serve it with nachos or tortilla, so I believe it’s a great side with a twist. 

In a retrospective though – more avocado definitely seems a great improvement!

Also check my other favorite recipes:


  • 1 ripe avocado
  • Handful of cherry tomatoes
  • Half an onion
  • Red pepper
  • Salt and olive oil to taste


This is a very quick dish so the whole preparation should be under 5 minutes. Chop all the ingredients in small pieces. I halved the cherry tomatoes, but smaller pieces would look better.

Once all is finely chopped, season with salt and sprinkle with olive oil and you’re ready!

I served this improvised guacamole with slices of grilled bread. Some nachos or tortilla will also be great, if you have them at home.
