Which Celebrity Has The Best Guacamole Recipe?
100 Comments


– Hey everyone, my name is Jesse from the Buzzfeed Food team, and today, I’m gonna
be testing five famous celebrity guacamole
recipes to see which one is actually the best. Today, I’ll be testing
recipes from Rachael Ray, Ayesha Curry, Alton Brown, Marcella Valladolid, and Beyonce. I measured all the ingredients precisely as the recipe stated to
level the playing field, and I got three of my friends to try our guacamole
in a blind taste test. I picked my winner, but I
wanna see what they thought. So, game on.
(whistle blows) Rachael Ray starts by
mixing diced red onions with lemon juice and salt, mixes it up, and let’s it sit for about 10 minutes. After that, she cuts
and pits two avocados, and scoops the flesh out on
top of that onion mixture, then adds some cilantro,
jalapeno and garlic, and mashes it all together. But, here’s where things get crazy. Next, she adds even more lemon juice, diced apples, and pureed
chipotle in adobo, then mixes that all up and seasons it. To finish it, she
transfers some into a bowl, and tops it liberally and
entirely with toasted almonds and even more apples. – We got almonds on the
guacamole, that’s not a thing. – Ooh, okay, okay, very chunky. – If I could think of,
like, Hawaiian guacamole, this is what I think I’d be getting. – Guacamole usually has
big texture problems, so I don’t mind the little bit of crunch from the almonds. – The almonds are good, they kinda break up the fruitiness and make it a little more savory. – I’m kinda freaking out about this one ’cause I don’t know what to make of it, but I do like it. – I don’t love it. – I like it. It’s different, but if we
go around not liking things that are different from us, come on, man, America, wake up. – [Jesse] Ayesha Curry starts
by scooping the meat out of a single avocado and
placing it into a bowl. She called it meat, not me, so don’t @ me in the
comments for this one. She then adds diced shallots, hot sauce, chunky garlic paste, lime juice, salt and pepper, then just mashes that all up with a fork and that’s it for this one. – Looks like this was a project between a mom and a child, and this is all they could achieve. – If something slaps me
across my taste buds, I’m gonna be angry because
it is so unassuming-looking. – This is definitely,
yeah, like a bar-quality. – Nothing special, it’s fine. – That’s very good. You know, it’s not spicy,
but it’s very creamy. Just your basic guacamole, but it’s good. I like this one. – [Jesse] Up next it Alton Brown. He starts with three whole avocados, cuts them in half, takes the pit out, and scoops the flesh into a bowl. To that, he adds lime juice, tosses it all together, and
strains out the extra juice into a tiny bowl ’cause
you’ll use this later. Next, he adds cayenne and cumin, and mashes it all together
with a potato masher to give it a nice, creamy texture. He adds garlic, onions, jalapeno, cilantro, tomatoes, and
the reserved lime juice, and mixes that all together. And, that’s it for this
one, super classic. – This looks like a classic guacamole. The colors here say, “Viva Mexico.” – This looks like the type of guac that you get when you
order it at a restaurant. – It’s not very guacamole-y-y. – There’s an issue here. There is a lack of flavor. – It almost doesn’t taste like avocado or like vegetables, it
tastes like taco seasoning. – There’s not enough seasoning in here, not enough salt. The basic of all guac. – I’ll say I don’t like this one. It presents itself in a way where it looks like it’s gonna be the ultimate guacamole, and then it isn’t. – [Jesse] Up next is Food
Network personality, Marcela V, just ’cause I don’t wanna
butcher her last name, with her sweet and spicy guacamole. She starts by cutting open five avocados, pits them, and roughly
mashes them all together with a fork to give it a nice texture. To that, she adds diced mango, red pepper flakes, a
generous amount of salt, and a ton of lime juice,
and mixes it all together. She places it into a bowl and tops it with chili
oil to add a pop of heat. – It looks beautiful, it’s attractive. – This looks like it’s gonna be spicy. – There’s a big chunk of an orange fruit, really throwing me for a loop here. – Oh, I lost sense of time. Where am I? – What is that? It tastes like Chinese food oil. – Tastes almost, like, Asian-infused. – This one is the most
interesting by far, and it’s good. I’m into it. – [Jesse] And last is
the Queen Bee herself with a super traditional recipe for guac. She starts by peeling two avocados and smashing them together with a spoon to smooth it all out. Next, she adds lime juice, tomato, diced onion, salt, pepper, and garlic, and mixes that all together
until it’s all incorporated. Transfer it to a bowl, and that’s it. – There was another that looked like it’s about to be a classic experience. – Picturesque, little tomatoes in there. – This is what you’ll have
at a Mexican restaurant. This has the right amount of seasoning, the right amount of tomatoes, onions. – This is almost, like,
the closest to just, like, guacamole. By the books, it seems
pretty straightforward. – The consistency is really nice, there’s some texture to
it, it’s not too chunky. It’s really good. – [Jesse] Which celebrity has
the best guacamole recipe? Let’s find out. – My favorite out of
all these five recipes was number four. A beautiful reinvention
of a classic recipe, done the freakin’ right way. You got sweet, you got
salty, you got everything. Are you serious? Marcela, that is awesome. – My favorite was number five. It was just, like, your typical guacamole, but it was very good,
like, a good texture, still creamy, there was something to, like, bite into with the
onions and the tomatoes, and I could eat that any day. (gasps) Get out. Blue Ivy is one lucky girl, eating that all the time. (laughs) – If I had to pick a
favorite guacamole today, it is, without question,
guacamole number four with the oil and the mangoes in there. I was blown away, it’s good guacamole. I don’t know who that is, but my theoretical hat is off to you. – [Jesse] There you have it, Marcela Valladolid has the best guacamole. Which celebrity recipe should we try next? Hit us up in the comments below. – It may be even better
than the classic recipe.

  2. Everyone is talking about the recipes, but no one's talking about how one of the celebrities calls the green part of the avocado /meat/

  3. Either the dude didn’t make Alton browns recipe right or the reviewers are total morons. I make that recipe all the time and it is CLASSIC guacamole. Everyone I’ve served it to loves it, and it’s the closest to Chipotle’s guac, which is excellent.

  4. Lmaoo. Haole really said, “If I could think of Hawaiian guacamole, this is what I think I’d be getting.” Don’t DISRESPECT my islands like that, sis.

  5. 2-3 avocados
    2-3 large limes
    1/2 a cup of cilantro
    2 hard boiled egg whites
    1 diced tomato
    2 teaspoons just a little bit of onions
    and the hint of lemon chips 🙂
    you’re welcome

  6. even tho i’m not a celebrity i have a good recipe you should try it

    2 avocados
    1 lime
    salt
    pepper
    1/4 cup salsa
    silantro
    diced sweet onion

  7. "gWaCh"
    "FLeSh, MeAt"

    sir it's pronounced "gwak-ah-mow-lee and say "the fruit" or "the inside" or just "the avocado" pls and thank u fhoigheroihgowelkjferlk

  8. I kinda hate how they keep saying GwAhCkAmoLEE but they fact that none of the judges are entitled ass holes acting like they’re on master chef makes up for it

  9. First of that not how some mexicans do guacamole…. Some do it like that white guy and other throw all the ingredients in a blender and get some bomd ass spicy guac.

  10. Some absolute basics you must have in a guac (for me, personally) is: avocado, red onion, cilantro, lime juice, jalapeno, and a good amount of salt. And none of these recipes had that. I'm honestly shocked lol. I thought I made the most basic guac (aside from adding tomatoes which is no bueno for me)
