The Best Guacamole Recipe

Prep Time10 mins
Total Time10 mins
Servings: 2 cups


  • 4 ripe avocados about medium size (mine weighed a total of 1 pound 12 oz before peeling)
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh squeezed lime juice
  • 1/3 cup minced onion either shallots or sweet onion
  • 3 Tbsp. fresh cilantro leaves minced
  • 3/4 tsp. fresh ground black pepper
  • 1/2 - 3/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 fresh jalapeno pepper optional for those that like SPICY


  • Halve the avocados and remove the pit. Scoop the flesh out and mash through wire mesh or mash with a fork.
  • Add the lime juice, onion, cilantro, black pepper and 1/2 tsp. of the salt. Stir gently until combined. Taste for salt and lime juice. If desired, add another 1/2 tsp. of salt.
  • If you like a spicy guacamole you can mince up a fresh jalapeno and add some or all of that. Include the seeds for the most spicy option. Remember, as your guacamole sits this will get hotter and hotter so use wisdom.
  • Refrigerate flooded with water until ready to serve.
