  • 2 Ripe Avocados
  • 1 Bunch Cilantro about 1/2 cup
  • 1/2 Red Onion
  • 1/2-1 Jalapeno
  • Juice of one lime
  • 2 Garlic Cloves (minced) or 1 tsp Garlic powder
  • 1/2 Tsp Cumin
  • 1/2 Tsp Salt
  • 1 Tbsp Olive Oil


  • Remove the skins and pits from the avocados and place them in a food processor or blender and blend until smooth.
  • Add in the remaining ingredients and pulse until combined for chunky guacamole.
  • For smooth guacamole, continue blending. 
  • Once done, remove, place in a bowl and garnish with more cilantro and olive oil. Then serve and enjoy.


You need ripe avocados. If you bring home still-firm avocados from your local grocery, leave them at room temperature until soft. 
For smoother guac, process for longer.
Keep from browning too quickly. Use Hass avocados, add lime to your guacamole, cover the finished mixture with plastic directly on its surface, and keep it cold--even when you serve.
Taste and adjust! Add more salt and seasoning to your taste.
If you are planning to add tomatoes and you’re looking for a good shortcut, buy some high-quality pico de gallo. It’ll save you from having to chop any vegetables and the flavors will be just about perfect!
If you prefer not to make this Guacamole using a blender, you can simply mash the avocados up using a fork for a more chunkier Guacamole. Then, add the other recipes to the mashed avocados. Mix and serve.
