“Explosive” Guacamole Volcano


Introducing the “Explosive” Guacamole Volcano, a playful twist on a Mexican classic gone humorously awry. While attempting a festive presentation, this dish erupts into a memorable cooking disaster, perfect for those with a sense of humor about kitchen mishaps. It’s a fun, edible volcano that unexpectedly overflows with guacamole, making for a deliciously chaotic centerpiece at any gathering.

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 0 minutes
Resting Time: 5 minutes (to observe the aftermath)
Total Time: 20 minutes
Serving: 4-6


  1. 3 ripe avocados, halved and pitted
  2. 1 tomato, finely chopped
  3. 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  4. 1 jalapeño, minced (seeds removed for less heat)
  5. Juice of 1 lime
  6. Salt and pepper to taste
  7. 1/2 cup salsa (for the “lava”)
  8. Tortilla chips, for serving
  9. 1 small can of black beans, drained (for the “volcanic rocks”)


  1. Mash the Avocados:
    • In a large bowl, scoop out the avocados and mash them with a fork to your desired consistency.
  2. Mix the Ingredients:
    • Add the chopped tomato, onion, jalapeño, and lime juice to the mashed avocados. Season with salt and pepper, and stir until well combined.
  3. Create the Volcano:
    • On a large platter, shape the guacamole mixture into a mound, simulating a volcano shape. Make a well at the top for the salsa “lava.”
  4. Erupt the Volcano:
    • Just before serving, pour the salsa into the crater of the guacamole volcano. Allow it to overflow and “erupt” down the sides.
  5. Final Touches:
    • Scatter black beans around the base of the volcano as “volcanic rocks.” Arrange tortilla chips around the platter for dipping.


  • The success of this dish lies in its playful presentation. Don’t strive for perfection; the messier the eruption, the better!
  • Serve immediately after adding the salsa to witness the full “eruptive” effect.
