This is my “great” recipe. Although I change it up occasionally, adding a variety of peppers, like poblano (or even Hatch when in season), tomatoes, and sometimes cilantro. I always come back to this. It just… works!

Serve with tortilla chips, pita chips, or cut veggies. Oh, my goodness. It’s so good!

Homemade Guacamole Ingredients

Here’s what you need to make this simple, delicious dip for snacking, game days, or just when you’re craving it!

  • Large avocados
  • Lime juice for flavor and consistency
  • Seasonings: salt and pepper, ground cumin and cayenne pepper
  • Addins: Finely chopped onion (or shallots or green onions), minced jalapeño, minced garlic, fresh cilantro

On the addins: these are completely optional and do add tremendous flavor and a nice texture, but if you don’t have time, you can definitely skip them.

How to Make Homemade Guacamole

Here are the simple steps to making your own delicious homemade guacamole in 5 minutes or less!

  • Cut the avocados in half lengthwise. Remove the pit, remove the avocado from the skin, and place into a bowl.
  • Add the lime juice, salt, cumin, and cayenne (if using) and mash with a potato masher, fork, or pastry cutter until half chunky, half smooth, and creamy. Fold in the onions, garlic, and fresh cilantro.
  • Serve with tortilla chips, pita chips, or cut veggies.

Ingredients

  • 3 large Hass avocados
  • 1 lime juiced (1-1/2 tablespoons)
  • kosher salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4-1/2 teaspoon cayenne optional for heat
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped onion my favorite is sweet yellow, but white, red, or even scallions work too
  • 2 teaspoons jalapeño seeded and minced, optional
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon cilantro chopped

Instructions

  • Cut the avocados in half lengthwise. Remove the pit, remove the avocado from the skin, and place into a bowl.
  • Add the lime juice, salt, cumin, and cayenne (if using) and mash with a potato masher, fork, or pastry cutter until half chunky, half smooth, and creamy. Fold in the onions, garlic, and fresh cilantro.
  • Serve with tortilla chips, pita chips, or cut veggies.

Notes

If the avocados are firm, use a pastry cutter — it makes the job a LOT easier! Also, I read that if you need to refrigerate the guacamole, place half an onion on top to preserve its color. It actually works!
