Homemade Guacamole Recipe is a quick and easy recipe that's great for any party! It's healthy, great to dip chips or vegetables in, and it's great with any Mexican dish!

Ingredients

  • 3 medium-large ripe avocados
  • 1 roma tomato, diced (optional)
  • 1 small jalapeno, seed and ribs removed for less heat
  • 1 small clove garlic, minced
  • 2-4 tablespoons finely chopped red onion
  • 1-2 tablespoons finely chopped cilantro
  • 1 lime, juiced (about 2 tablespoons needed)
  • 1/4-3/4 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  1. Cut ripe avocado into quarters, remove seed, and peel. Place into a large bowl. Using a potato masher mash avocado until it reaches your desired texture. I like mine a little chunky. 

  2. Stir in remaining ingredients and taste. Add extra salt as needed. 

Recipe Notes

  1. To store: spoon into a container and spread into an even layer. Press plastic wrap over the top making sure not to trap any air pockets. I do this all the time and it greatly extends the life of my guacamole without it turning brown! Store in the refrigerator for 2-3 days.
