TeeTee's Chunky Guacamole

Avocado may be the most popular item in our house. We all love it. REALLY, really love it. And truly, is there a more perfect food? This guacamole is by far the very best I have ever had. I don't make guacamole often. And until now, I didn't have a go-to recipe. This one fell from the sky from my sister, Teresa (known in our house as TeeTee). We took this dish to a guacamole contest - and we won! It was so exciting. Not only is it so unbelievably delicious, but it's also gorgeous. Make this and share with others - you can be assured that it's wonderful. Also, it's so chunky that it could be served as a side dish/salad with rice and beans or some other mexi type dish. Mmmm....

Makes one large dish full.
Serve within a few hours, does not hold over well overnight.

  • 4 avocados, pitted and diced (reserve pits)
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 cup white corn (if frozen, allow to thaw out before using - do not microwave!) 
  • 1 bunch cilantro, roughly chopped 
  • 1/4 cup very finely chopped sweet onion
  • Juice of 2 limes 
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin 
  • Sea salt 
  • chili powder 
  1. In a large bowl, gently combine all ingredients minus salt and chili. 
  2. Season generously with salt. Taste. Add more salt. Taste again. Repeat as needed. 
  3. Season with chili powder. Taste. Season again with salt and chili as desired. 
  4. Transfer to serving dish and top with pits to preserve color.
