The Best Simple Guacamole

  • Author: Katia
  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 6-8 1x


  • 3 ripe avocados, pitted, peeled and sliced into cubes (Save one pit for the guacamole for freshness)
  • 3/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1 large lime, juiced
  • 2 medium organic tomatoes (or about 6 oz. ), diced small
  • 1 large garlic clove, pressed or 1 tsp granulated garlic
  • 1/4 cup red onion, finely diced (submerged in water for 10 minutes, then drained)
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 1/4 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/8 tsp ground black pepper
  • *optional- 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely diced (I don't usually include this if I'm serving to my kids or those sensitive to spicy food, but even without it's not lacking on flavor)


  1. Once you've peeled and pitted the avocado, score each half into cubes and then scoop out the avo into a medium mixing bowl.
  2. Add salt and lime juice to the bowl with avocado and smash up the avocado with a fork till fairly smooth with just some slight chunks (or to your liking)
  3. Then add the remaining ingredients and combine.
  4. Taste and adjust salt, pepper and lime juice if need be.
  5. Add the saved avocado pit to the bowl you're serving the guacamole in for added freshness
  6. Serve immediately or chill in the refrigerator for at least 1 hr.
