  • 3 ripe avocados
  • ½ cup finely chopped red onion
  • ¼ cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 1 jalapeño pepper seeded and finely minced
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • ½ teaspoon salt


  • Cut the avocados in half lengthwise. Remove the pit, scoop out the avocado flesh with a spoon and place the avocado halves in a medium bowl. Mash with a fork to your desired consistency
  • Add the red onions, cilantro, garlic, jalapeño pepper, lime juice and salt. Stir to combine. Taste and adjust seasoning or lime juice as necessary.
  • Serve immediately with tortilla chips, if desired.



Storage: Store any leftovers in an airtight container. They will last about 3-4 days in the fridge. Make sure to cover it with a piece of plastic wrap pressed on top of the guacamole so it is touching it. This usually prevents it from browning. If some browning does occur, just scrape the browned layer off and serve.
Make Ahead Tips: You can make chop all the ingredients and juice the lime up to a day in advance. Then you can mash the avocado and assemble before enjoying.
