This is my best spicy chunky guacamole. You will love the heat coming from red chilies in it. Best game day treat ever!
Spicy Chunky Guacamole is my best movie night or game day treat. And it’s probably the easiest appetizer too. It’s ready in less than 5 minutes or so. You can make it even when the guests arrive for a game party, which is the ideal time indeed. Don’t make it ahead of time! A rich, flavorsome, citrusy guacamole is best when served fresh. It might lose color otherwise. I don’t even need tortilla chips or anything else, just give me a spoon and a big bowl of this –oh this so yummy guacamole disappears in seconds.
Guacamole doesn’t have a precise recipe, everyone can make it in their way. You need some basic ingredients for a perfect guacamole but you see thousands of different recipes around the web. The reason for this is that everyone uses the measurements according to their taste. There is no one rule for the measurements, so taste it while making and find your best guacamole recipe that way. You can even add a favorite extra ingredient you think that will go perfect with in amazing dip. Our spicy chunky guacamole has finely chopped red chilies as an extra kick.
In a classic guacamole recipe, you’ll see finely chopped jalapeno peppers to give it a little heat, but I love to see tiny red pieces in it, so I use red chilies instead. I don’t even bother removing the seeds as they are really tiny and you know they are extra hot, which I love. Some recipes use finely chopped tomatoes, but I really don’t like it in guacamole as it makes the dip too moist and watery after a while.
So what do you need for a spicy chunky guacamole recipe? Ripe avocado, red onion, cilantro, red chilies and lime juice. Some recipes use green onions instead of red onion, but I do love the crunchiness and its sweet bitterness in this avocado dip. No need to mention the sweet purple or pinkish color it has. If you don’t like cilantro, you can replace it with fresh parsley or mint leaves. I sometimes do so for the friends who hate cilantro. It’s not the favorite herb for most people around us. To be honest, it wasn’t love at first taste for me, either. I needed some time and some recipes like Fried Chicken Tacos to get used to its unique flavor. Wouldn’t it be great to serve chicken tacos and a spicy guacamole on a special day like Cinco de Mayo?

My Best Guacamole
This is my best guacamole. You will love red chili pepper in it. Best game day treat ever!
- Prep Time: 5 minutes
- Total Time: 5 minutes
- Yield: 2
- 1 ripe avocado
- 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
- 2 tablespoons finely chopped red onion
- 1 teaspoon finely chopped red chilies
- 2 tablespoons finely chopped cilantro (parsley or mint if you don’t like cilantro)
- Salt to taste
- Cut the avocado in half. Using a spoon, remove the seed and then scoop out the flesh. Put it in a mixing bowl or in a mortar. Mash the avocado with a fork or in the mortar. But do it roughly and leave chunks in it.
- Immediately add in the lime juice so that the avocado won’t get brown quickly.
- Stir in the rest of the ingredients, taste and make any changes that you think necessary.
- I recommend you to make this guacamole right before serving, otherwise it might lose color. The fresher, the better.
