Ingredients for the Perfect Guacamole

Guacamole is a great pairing for just about any type of Mexican food. Its creamy texture and delicious flavor complement the spice of many dishes. You can even enjoy it as an appetizer with warm and crispy tortilla chips.

We use only the freshest ingredients to make our delicious guacamole. 

Ripe Avocados

Avocados are the base of guacamole, so the quality of the avocados makes a huge difference. At Guads, we choose only the freshest avocados at peak ripeness. We crush them right here in our restaurants twice a day. This means that no matter when you visit, you are getting the freshest possible guacamole with your entrees or for your appetizer.


The best guacamole has a slight kick to it without being overpowered by spice. Achieving this balance can be tricky, but at Guadalajara’s Grill & Tequila Bar we are experts. We use crisp and delicious jalapeños, finely diced, and added in just the right amount. This creates a bold hint of chili flavor while still allowing our ripe avocados to stand out.


Garlic is essential for most types of cuisine and Mexican food is no exception. Minced garlic helps bring out the flavor of the other ingredients. We make sure to add just the right amount. You will not notice an overwhelming flavor of garlic, but you will see how just a small amount makes a noticeable difference.

Fresh Cilantro

Cilantro is very common in Mexican dishes. We use fresh cilantro and chop the leaves to mix in and garnish our guacamole. We know that this herb can be overpowering, so we add exactly the right amount to give a hint of flavor.

Sea Salt and Lime

Avocados and lime make the perfect pair. The earthiness of ripe avocados is brought out by the acidity of lime. The tangy flavor of lime juice is extraordinary and you will notice the difference between guacamole with lime and without. Salt also pairs with the lime and avocado to create an additional pop of flavor.

Pico de Gallo

We top our guacamole with a spoonful of pico de gallo. This features tomatoes, red onion, and cilantro. You can mix this into your guacamole to create additional flavors throughout the mix. If you prefer, you can also leave it on top as a garnish.

Queso Fresco

Queso fresco is a great topping for any type of Mexican dish, as it adds creamy flavor. We crumble this on our guacamole as a final finishing touch. Like our pico de gallo, you can mix it in and get hints of it throughout your appetizer or entree.
