When I flew out to Denver, Colorado this winter to speak at TEDx, I stayed at Dafna (See photo with me) and Michael Jenet’s home. They are both close friends, amazing people, and together run the Journey Institute which is a non-profit organization bent on helping people make a difference in the world. Please go get inspired at their site. While I was there, Michael (shown above) whipped up some of his astoundingly good guacamole. BEST RECIPE EVER. I ate most of the bowl myself.

As you all know, avocados are one of my favorite things to eat in the world, so being spoiled rotten as a house guest with avocado love was perfection – I sipped fizzy gin cocktails and snarfed guacamole most of the evening with a giant smile on my face. Thanks Michael; you rawked the guac. Below is the recipe which is super-easy and inexpensive to make — you can grow the vegetables that go along with the avocado organically in your home garden. Enjoy!

Guacamole A La Michael


  • 2 or 3 ripe avocados, mashed
  • 1 handful of cilantro, chopped fine
  • 1 small onion, sliced extra thin
  • juice from 1/2 a lime
  • 1 jalapeno, diced into tiny pieces
  • 1 small tomato, diced
  • salt and pepper to taste

Mix all the ingredients together. Serve with chips or on it’s own as a salad. Delicious!

  1. Yummy!! I’m salvating as I write this as avocado is my favourite too Shawna. A tad expensve here in Ireland in comparison to USA I should think as we import. We obviously don’t grow it because as you might recall we don’t get a hell of a lot of sunshine in Ireland Shawna!!

  2. It is so good to know that a food I love is healthy for me. Will have to add cilantro and try it!

  3. Huh no sour cream? I like to slice avocado and eat it that way so this sounds like a nice recipe. Thanks for sharing.
