While we were vacationing in California this past April, we visited one of our favorite Mexican restaurants located at the end of Santa Monica Pier. It’s called Maria Sol, and they serve this over-the-top, beautiful, delicious tableside guacamole.

Tableside guacamole is prepared right at your table, and it’s as fresh as guacamole possibly gets! It’s such a fun treat to serve at home too, and your dinner guests will ooh and ahh while you prepare it.

Gather your ingredients:

count on at least one avocado per person (I used 5)

chopped yellow onion

chopped, fresh cilantro

chopped, ripe, fresh tomatoes

chopped, fresh jalapeno peppers

lime wedges

sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Once you’ve gathered all of your guacamole ingredients, Place them in small bowls or ramekins.

Halve or quarter your avocados and remove the pits
