Torchy’s Guacamole Recipe

A bowl of handmade Torchy's Guacamole from Urban Cowgirl

This Torchy’s Guacamole Recipe is heavenly. It’s also SPOT ON compared to the original.

Buttery from choice HAAS avocados, rich in flavor from simple and classic ingredients like white onion and fresh cilantro. This copycat of Torchy’s Guacamole will have you ready for fiesta!

We created it to go with our Torchy’s Queso Recipe, but once you make it you’ll be stuffing it into burritos, shoveling it on chips, and spooning it on top of warm tortilla soup.

It all starts with fresh HAAS avocados… that’s the big ones. Haas avocados can be a little more expensive but the flavor is noticeably richer and more flavorful than small avocados. You’ll be able to identify the HAAS avocado because it’s larger than standard avocados, and it has a smooth skin as opposed to the bumpy skin of plain avocados.

Torchy’s uses cilantro sparingly and with finesse. Chop it up razor fine for their guacamole….

Only use white onion for this guacamole! Tex Mex cuisine traditionally uses white onion because it’s flavor stands up to the abundantly bright and exciting flavors of Texas-Mexican fusion. Red onion or sweet onion are best used for pickling into Texas escabeche and making into garnishes.

We use a glass pie plate to mash our guacamole because it gives a large surface to maneuver ingredients on, with a small edge to hold in the guac!
