After trying the guacamole at Rosa Mexicano restaurant in NYC, I knew I had to recreate it. This Rosa Mexicano Guacamole Recipe is so buttery and delicious!

Rosa Mexicana Guacamole

Gordon and I went out for a date a few weeks ago to a restaurant called Rosa Mexicano; they have several locations in the city. Anyways, we were told by several people that they are known for their guacamole so obviously we went in knowing we HAD to try it.

You guys, it was good. VERY good in fact. After trying my best to dissect the recipe by examining all the ingredients in the dark (mood lighting, ya’ll) and eating it with and without tortilla chips (finishing the whole bowl….for research purposes) I came to the conclusion that onions cooked in butter was their secret. I have no idea if this is actually their secret or recipe, but it certainly tasted like it and oh mama does butter + onions + avocados make good guacamole!

I tested this recipe twice and both times had Eddie licking his fingers clean. Once he runs out of chips, he doesn’t ask for more chips, he just starts dipping and licking his fingers. That boy LOVES his guacamole. But, I am his mother and can’t say I’m surprised because this stuff is LEGIT.

So, this recipe of guacamole calls for:

  • ripe avocados
  • diced tomato
  • cilantro
  • onions cooked in butter
  • garlic
  • salt & pepper
  • lime juice

Nothing too out of the ordinary, but the beauty of this recipe are all the goodies found in between the extra buttery avocado which is what sets this guacamole apart from others and explains why Rosa Mexicano is known for amazing Guacamole.

Whether you’ve been to this restaurant in New York City or not, you can make amazing, buttery and flavorful guacamole at home with this simple and delicious recipe!

    At one time I could view the recipe on the restaurant website. It’s since been removed but versions of the recipe are readily available.

    There is no need to saute the onions. The restaurant’s published recipe doesn’t include this extraneous step. The recipe is also missing the pepper, whether it be serrano or jalepeno.

  3. Classic Guacamole Recipe | Lauren's Latest

    […] Today I’m sharing this Classic Guacamole Recipe. I love Guacamole. It’s really hard for me to NOT like guacamole, that’s how much I like it. Absolutely love the stuff. I could eat it all day, but only when it is made correctly. And by correctly I mean how I like it. My husband used to hate the fact that I added garlic in my guacamole because that isn’t how his mom made it, but I’ve won him over (after being married for 11 years! Ha!). While basic Guacamole is just avocados, lime juice, salt and pepper, there are definitely other ingredients you can add in to jazz the recipe up how you like. If you’re into other kinds of guacamole, be sure to check out my Mexican Street Corn Guacamole, Guacamole recipe for a crowd, Grilled Guacamole and Rosa Mexicana Guacamole. […]

    I made this today and seriously this is the best guacamole I’ve never had or made. It’s so fresh and buttery smooth. My husband says he doesn’t even really care for guacamole but he tried some and he said it was delicious. I’m excited for the next party I get invited to bring a treat to because I think I’ll bring this and I’m guessing it would be a hit!

    If I wanted to make this for our girls trip, do you think it would work to cook the onions beforehand and refrigerate until needed? I wouldn’t want to assemble it before we go bc brown guacamole is not really appetizing. Still tasty, but….
