Spicy Guacamole {Secret Recipe Club}

When I got my email for the Secret Recipe Club I eagerly browsed through my assignments site (More Please by Margie) and fell upon her guacamole recipe. My family and I are huge guac fans, so I immediately was drawn to this recipe.

Guacamole tends to be a 'taste as you go' recipe.  Everyone has their own variations and measurements.      

I've used many existing recipes and tons of my own creations but none have used hot sauce.  Seems like a given since jalapenos are widely used in guacamoles, alas, I've never heard of it...but so glad I did!

I used a combo of Tabasco and Pico Pica (hot sauce) and it turned out awesome!!

Thanks Margie for your inspiration!

Spicy Guacamole 
Recipe Adapted from More Please

4 Haas Avocados
3 chopped roma tomatoes, 2 tablespoons reserved for garnish
1/2 tablespoon cilantro, plus more for garnish
1/2 cup minced onion
1/4 teaspoon granulated onion
1/4 teaspoon dried garlic
1/2 teaspoon tabasco
1 teaspoon Pico Pica (hot sauce)
2 small limes, juiced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 mined jalapeno (optional)

Scoop the avocado into a medium bowl and mush.  Pour the juiced lime into the avocado and sprinkle the granulated onion, dried garlic, tabasco, pico pica salt and pepper.  Mix until well incorporated.  Add the tomatoes, cilantro, onions and jalapeno, and mix well.

Serve garnished with diced tomato and cilantro.



  1. I'm always up for new guac recipes, and this one looks fabulous! What is Pico Pica though? Thanks!

  2. I had the same question about Pico Pica... I love trying out new hot sauces, so I will look for that one! That's a gorgeous bowl of guac, I love how you jazzed up the recipe.

  3. Thanks so much!! Pico Pica is an authentic mexican hot sauce (I got it at the local grocery store.) It's really good!! :)

  4. I love guacamole and love the combination of ingredients in this one. I'll have to try it with Pico Pica.

  7. Dropping by from SRC. This looks similar to my guac recipe, without the hot sauce though. Not many people add tomato, which it has to have for me. I seriously want some now.

  8. Guac is one of my favorite appetizers-I like the spicy additions!
