Method: No Bake
Cuisine: Mexican


  • 3 large avocados, ripe
  • 3 cloves garlic, smashed and minced (~1.5 tablespoons)
  • 1/3 medium red onion, finely diced
  • 1 medium lime, juice (or more, to taste)
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt (or more, to taste)
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro, freshly chopped
  • optional: 1/2 large jalapeno, finely diced


  1. First, remove the flesh of the avocados and place it into a medium-size bowl. Use a fork to mash avocado flesh until smooth. Alternatively, you can leave some chunks, if you prefer a more chunky guacamole.
  2. Next, add in minced garlic, finely diced onion, lime juice, sea salt, and cilantro, and mix until combined.
  3. Give guacamole a taste test and adjust the salt and lime juice depending on what it needs.
  4. Serve with your favorite tortilla chips!


  • Storage: We recommend eating guacamole immediately after you make it. However, if you have leftovers, place guacamole into a medium bowl and squeeze on some lime juice. Then, cover it with a piece of plastic wrap and remove as much air as possible. Store in the fridge for 2-3 days.
