I love fresh guacamole, it goes so well on something like avocado toast, served along side a Buddha bowl/salad, or to use as a dip for your tortilla chips. This keeps well in the fridge for a few days if you squeeze some lemon or lime over it before covering and refrigerating it in an air-tight container.

I know some people like smooth guacamole, if that’s your preference you can do a finer dice on the onions and tomatoes.

Guacamole Recipe

Easy and delicious fresh guac.
Course: Snack
Cuisine: Mexican


  • 2-3 ripe avocados
  • 1/2 lemon or lime juiced
  • 1/2 onion finely chopped
  • 1 small tomato chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic crushed
  • 1 handful fresh cilantro chipped finely
  • salt to taste
  • 1/2 tsp crushed black pepper
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper optional


  • In a bowl big enough to hold all the ingredients, mix together the chopped onions and tomatoes, add in the garlic along with the cilantro.
  • Scoop out the flesh from the avocado, discarding the peel and pit. Add the avocado to the same bowl and crush it with a fork. You can keep it as chunky, or make it as smooth as you like.
  • Add the lemon juice, peppers, and salt. Taste and adjust the amounts of each of these until they are to your liking.
