Recipe of the Week: The Perfect Guacamole


Avocados are awesome. They’re full of healthy fats including oleic and alpha-linolenic acid, and they have high concentrations of various antioxidants as well as vitamins and minerals like C, Bs, selenium, and zinc.

Guacamole is my absolute favorite way of preparing the avocado. Sure, you can eat it with chips, but there are many other yummy foods that guacamole goes great with:

  • Scrambled eggs
  • Baked potato
  • Salad
  • Hamburger
  • Shrimp
  • Raw veggies (as a dip)

This recipe is from my cookbook, The Shredded Chefand it’s simple, but delicious. Enjoy!

  guac prep


2 ripe avocados

1/2 red onion, finely chopped

2 serrano chilies, seeded and finely chopped

1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped

1 tablespoon fresh lime juice

1/2 teaspoon salt

dash of ground black pepper



Cut the avocados in half, pit them and scoop out the peel and place in a mixing bowl. Add in the chopped onion, cilantro, lime, salt, pepper, and half the chili.

Mash together, I personally like mine slightly chunky, so I don’t mash too much. Taste, add additional lime, salt, and chili to reach desired flavor and level of spice. I always end up adding a tiny bit more salt and the rest of the chili, but that’s just how I like it!

I'm Mike and I'm the creator of Muscle for Life and Legion Athletics, and I believe that EVERYONE can achieve the body of their dreams.

If you like what I have to say, sign up for my free newsletter and every week I'll send you awesome, science-based health and fitness tips, delicious "diet-friendly" recipes, motivational musings, and more.


What if I told you that just about everything magazines and trainers “teach” you about dieting is wrong?

What if you could build muscle and lose fat eating “naughty” foods every week?

What if you didn’t have to suffer through low-carb dieting to get lean? In fact, what if you could eat all the carbs you wanted?

And what if you didn’t have to gorge yourself just to gain muscle and didn’t have to put on pounds and pounds of ugly fat, either?

In short, what if I told you that proper dieting--whether you want to maximize fat loss or muscle growth--is much simpler and more enjoyable than you’ve been led to believe?

Imagine eating delicious, filling meals every day...never feeling starved or stuffed...having great energy levels and workouts...and watching your body respond exactly as you desire, dropping fat or adding muscle each and every week.

And imagine finally understanding how proper dieting really works, never again falling for the BS, tricks, and gimmicks pushed by “gurus” and other shysters.

Well, I have good news.

All these “fantasies” can be a reality...if you know how to do a handful of “little” things correctly.

You see, when you know how to diet properly--and this doesn’t mean learning to eat boiled chicken and raw broccoli six times per day--getting lean and muscular becomes simple, convenient, and dare I say...enjoyable.

And this book will show you the way.
