Classic Homemade Guacamole #SundaySupper

Classic Homemade Guacamole

Thursday I was about to start my exercise when I realized I hadn’t taped my toes.  It might sound strange, but it’s part of my routine and it helps keep my feet looking and feeling good.

I paused the end of All Star Academy, went to do the tape, and came back to the TV which was no longer on.  The screen went black and an ominous red light blinked over and over on the base.  This was not good.

After being advised to unplug it by a salesman at a local electronics shop, we did that.  And while I have wanted a new TV for awhile, I hoped the unplug would reset it because I didn’t want a new TV right then.

Alas, that was what happened, when the TV continued to refuse to turn on.  After hooking TiVo up to another TV to allow it to continue to work it’s magic, it was time to research a new TV.

See, we are TV people.  Yes, I like to go out and get dressed up.  Dinner out, shopping, concerts, high heels, makeup.  I love it all.  But there is literally nothing better to me than coming home at the end of the day and watching TV.  I love it.  I’m obsessed with it.  It is happiness and an escape.

I found a couple viable options that I presented to Mom along with an OLED TV that presents the latest technology.  I didn’t think we’d spring for it, but since we were in the market, I thought I’d mention it.

We headed to the electronics shop to discuss options, and pretty soon it was easy to see the only real option was the OLED 4K beauty.  And it would be delivered the next day.

After struggling to watch American Idol, Grey’s Anatomy, and Scandal on a little tiny TV, Friday our new screen was delivered.  Yes, not much more than 24 hours later, we were back in action.  Priorities, people.

It’s sleek and big and shiny and the picture is so clear.  And it’s weird.

I’m not complaining, I love it.  But there’s something about the technology that makes everything look … different.

It’s hard to explain unless you’ve watched an OLED 4K TV, but it almost feels like you are no longer watching TV but instead in the room with James Bond or Jimmy Fallon (that’s what we’ve watched so far).  It’s kind of freaky and taking some getting used to.  Once we are used to it, though, we will have forever been spoiled.

By now, I bet I’ve got you all wanting to watch TV.  But before you do, whip up a batch of my Classic Homemade Guacamole.  It’s the perfect TV watching companion.

I often eat this healthy, gluten free, vegan dip for dinner with a few tortilla chips.  It’s loaded with vegetables – avocado, onion, herbs, garlic, tomatoes, and I even added some cucumber for a fresh crunch.  Pepper and Sriracha add that kick.  I also like to serve it with a bit of cheese; I recently became obsessed with manchego.

So let’s eat guacamole and watch some TV!

Classic Homemade Guacamole #SundaySupper

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes

Yield: 2 servings as meal, 4 as an appetizer


2 large ripe Haas avocadoes, diced

½ red onion, finely diced

4 garlic cloves, minced

½ bunch flat leaf parsley, leaves only

½ bunch cilantro, leaves only

1 large tomato, diced

½ English cucumber, peeled, diced

1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1 teaspoon Sriracha

Tortilla chips for serving


In a medium bowl, mix together avocadoes, onion, garlic, parsley, cilantro, tomato, and cucumber. Mix as much you like. I prefer my guacamole to have a bit of texture. Season with pepper and Sriracha.

Serve immediately with chips and more cucumber slices. I also just eat it like a salad.

  1. TV and guac – not going to lie, it doesn’t get much better than that!

    I’m so glad you got your new TV so quickly and it sounds terrific. I love guacamole and this recipe is definitely on I would love. I wish I could bring some avocados from the Dominican. They are THE BEST Scott and I have ever eaten. We don’t like the Mexican ones any more…. These are so smooth (like butter) and taste so delicious.

  3. What beautiful colors and flavors in this dish. I’m pretty sure I could live on guacamole.

  4. Now I’m hungry for some guac! Yum!

  5. I could prop my feet up for a while with a big bowl of this guacamole!

  6. Chunky guac!!! Love it! so often it is waaaay too pureed for my taste.

  7. SO chunky and wonderful! I love, love guacamole and yours looks terrific! Now I need to see one of those TVs 🙂

  8. Guacamole is something we don’t make often. The hubs was convinced it was supposed to be all blended up together like you see in stores. Um…NO! This looks perfect.

  9. Bummer when something like a TV conks out, isn’t it? We’re not major watchers, but when we want it, we want it! Anyway, great guacamole recipe. You’re right — it’s perfect for munching on while watching TV. Which, strangely enough, I have a sudden compulsion to do. 🙂

  10. what a great idea for a light dinner!
