  • 2 large haas avocados
  • 1/2 jalapeno minced (about 1/2 Tablespoon)
  • 1/2 Tablespoon fresh lime juice 1 lime
  • 1 small tomato diced
  • 1/2 red onion diced
  • 1 teaspoon salt plus more to taste
  • handful cilantro minced (about 2 Tablespoons)


  • Cut avocado lengthwise, working the knife around the circumference of the avocado.
  • Twist to open the avocado. Carefully remove the pit.
  • Using a spoon, scoop inside into medium-sized mixing bowl.
  • Use the backside of a fork to mash the avocado until the desired texture. I like my guacamole on the slightly chunkier side.
  • Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Taste and add salt if needed.
  • Serve with tortilla chips or pair with any dish. Leftovers keep in the fridge for about 3 days.



Guacamole will begin to brown immediately. It is still safe to eat after about 3 days when stored in the fridge.
