Two for One! – Easy Pico de Gallo and Guacamole Recipe


I love fresh pico de gallo, especially easy pico de gallo. Whenever I visit Mexico I eat it by the bucket. No joke. I have been making it at home for a few years and have recently sped things up by using a small Kitchen Aid food processor. Although the chunky style is my preference, the time it takes to chop all the ingredients by hand is not worth the effort now that I have found a way for a quick 2 for 1 salsa and guacamole recipe. Efficient!

Read on.

Before you Start:

Prep time: 5 min
Serves: A lot. Makes 3 cups salsa and ~2 cups guac.

To make things easier:

– Small food processor. You can cut by hand like a sucker if you don’t have one.


Spices and other

1 teaspoon garlic powder
Course Salt to taste


1/2 Cilantro bunch
1 small-medium onion (white preferably)
3-4 medium sized Roma tomatoes
2 Jalapenos (seeds removed)
2 Ripe Avocados
1 Lime

All you need.


1. Peel your onion and set aside 1/4 for guac. No tears, you are a big boy. Deseed your jalapenos and tomatoes.

2. In small food processor combine 3/4 onion, 1 jalapeno, tomatoes, and garlic powder. Chop chop.

3. Squeeze juice from lime and salt to taste.

4. Set aside salsa in a separate dish. Reserve a couple tablespoons in the food processor for guac. This is Key!

Rinse and drain.
Salsa time.

5. Add remaining onion, jalapeno, and avocados to the mixer. Smashie Smashie. Salt to taste.

Rinse and drain.

6. Enjoy!

Rinse and drain.
How easy was that?

Note: To get a little extra life out of your guacamole squeeze a bit of lime on top before covering. Be sure to cover as tightly to the guac as possible to minimize its contact with air.
