Total Time: 15 minutes
Servings: 4 people


  • 4 avocados make sure they're ripe!
  • 3/4 cup red onion finely minced
  • 4 Tbsp cilantro finely chopped
  • 2 limes juiced
  • 1 tomato chopped
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt


  • Soak chopped red onion in the juice of one lime
  • Remove flesh from avocado and scoop into a large bowl
  • Smoosh avocado with a fork, and leave it a little chunky
  • Add onion in lime juice, and 1/2 tsp kosher salt to avocado. Mix well
  • Add tomato and cilantro and mix well
  • Taste guacamole and add more lime juice and salt as desired. I usually add the juice of another lime, and at least another half teaspoon of kosher salt


After you make this a few times, you won't need a recipe anymore. And you'll have your friends and neighbors asking you to make it often!
