Homemade Guacamole – It isn’t summer without making an amazing homemade guacamole!  So fresh and delicious!


  • 4 large avocados, cubed
  • 2 teaspoon kosher salt (more to taste)
  • 2 tablespoons garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup purple onion, diced (yellow onion works too)
  • juice of 23 limes
  • 3/41 cup fresh cilantro, roughly chopped and loosely packed
  • 1/2 jalapeño, seeds removed & finely minced
  • 2 Roma tomatoes, diced (optional)


  1. Cube all 4 avocados into a medium bowl; Mash really well with fork.
  2. Add onion, garlic, lime juice, salt and cilantro; mix to taste.
  3. Add tomatoes if desired and any additional salt or lime juice to taste.
  4. Serve with your favorite tortilla chips or any way you want!


  • Taste: You definitely need to taste as you go with this as everyone is different!  Feel free to add more of any ingredient as you deem appropriate!
  • Storage: you can keep leftover guacamole in an airtight container in the fridge for about 24 hours, but the browning process happens quickly for avocados so we recommend eating it right away!
