I love guacamole. I consider it a dietary staple. We eat it with almost everything. Sometimes I eat it from a spoon. I love it. Really, really love it.

My guacamole recipe is very simple, but every time I serve it, people rave about it and ask for the recipe. Here it is…


3 small or 2 large avocados

1/2 of a jalapeno, finely chopped (adjust according to how spicy you like it, remove the seeds to make it less spicy)

1/2 of a small tomato, diced

1-2 tbsp finely chopped fresh cilantro

1 small lime, juiced

Kosher or sea salt

Peel and seed avocado, and mash in a bowl using the back of a fork. Add jalapeno, tomato, cilantro, and lime juice. Sprinkle generously with salt. Stir together, taste, and adjust seasoning to your preference – it’s the lime juice and salt that make it so good, so don’t go too light! This feeds 2-4 people, but the recipe can easily be increased.

I often make this early in the day and cover it tightly with plastic wrap to keep in the refrigerator until dinner – because of the lime juice, it will stay green and fresh. Serve with chips, or anything really, or maybe with Mexican Chicken!



  1. We are asked to make guacamole all of the time because my husband copied your recipe years ago!! So good!!!! Thank you!!

    • I should also mention that your husband improved upon it by adding red onion. Yum! I secretly like his better 🙂

      • I tend to whip in a decent drzzlie of olive oil to fluff it up a bit as it’s incredibly hard to get properly ripe avocados not but for two weeks in a year. You can also use mayonnaise in small amount to cheat the effect as well.
