Holy Guacamole

Holy Guacamole

This is my go-to guacamole recipes. It's zingy, fresh and wonderfully creamy and of course goes great with Mexican food! I also like to use it as a colorful dip for parties and picnics, and to add a flavorful, creamy texture in sandwiches and wraps. If you don't have ripe tomatoes on hand, you can leave them out because it will still taste good!

It takes less than 10 minutes and makes about one cup.



4 servings
  1. 1 Avocado, ripe and slightly soft!
  2. 1 Tbsp Lime or lemon juice
  3. 1/4 Onion
  4. 1-2 Tbsp Fresh cilantro
  5. 1/8 tsp Cayenne pepper or dried spicy red chili
  6. 1/4 tsp Salt, plus more if needed
  7. To taste Pepper
  8. 1/4 Tomato, optional


15 mins
  1. Change

    Prepare ingredients: slice open avocado and remove seed. Finely chop onion and cilantro. Juice lime or lemon (I need slightly less than half a lime).

  2. Change

    Scoop out avocado into a bowl with a spoon and roughly mash so it's still chunky.

  3. Change

    Add in lime juice, cilantro, and onion. Also sprinkle in a little bit of salt and hot pepper/cayenne pepper.

  4. Change

    Mix roughly. Taste to see if it's salty and spicy enough to suit your preference. Add a bit lime/lemon juice if you like the extra zing ;)

  5. Change

    Last, fold in the diced tomatoes if using and add some black pepper if you want. Serve in a bowl, and garnish top with a bit of cilantro and couple pieces of tomato for a nice touch.

  6. Change

    If not serving right away, wrap and refrigerate until ready to eat. Serve as a dip for chips, add to tacos and burritos, or sandwiches!
