Secret Recipe: Four Seasons Guacamole

My girlfriends and I have a tradition — every time one of us turns 40 (which, for the record, I am NOWHERE NEAR — kind of), we take a trip. The birthday girl gets to choose where…so far, we’ve done Mexico and Scottsdale, Arizona. In Scottsdale, we stayed (on a great deal) at the swanky Four Seasons resort. The thing I remember most about the Four Seasons is not the pool or the plush chaise lounges with water misters to keep you un-sweaty, it’s the most amazing guacamole we had at dinner one night.

This guac was prepared from scratch, tableside. The waiter expertly pitted the avocados, juiced the lime, blended in the other ingredients so the texture wasn’t too lumpy or too smooth — all right in front of us.

It was the best guacamole I’ve ever had. So, I asked for the recipe. And do you know what? They GAVE it to us! (It must have been the pretty ladies who didn’t look a day over 25 :-))

From my secret recipe pile to yours…

Secret Recipe: Four Seasons Guacamole


4 Ripe Avocados

2 Limes, juiced

1 Roma Tomato, diced

1 Small Red Onion, diced

1 Jalapeno, deseeded and diced

1/2 cup Cilantro, chopped

1 tsp Ground Cumin

1 tsp Fresh Ground Black Pepper

Kosher Salt to Taste


Take the avocado cut across the center and split in halves. Take the pit out and take the avocado out of shell using a large spoon. Place in a mixing bowl and add juice of lime. Incorporate together using a large spoon to break up the avocado.

Add remaining ingredients, stir to combine, and season to taste. Try not to inhale.
