When we’re entertaining we have a few recipes we always go to. Sure we’ll also add something with a twist next to it, but we always include one of our staples. This simple guacamole recipe is one of those staples. It’s easy, it’s fresh and no matter what else we serve with it, it’s always the first to go. Serve with tortilla chips, baked pita chips or if you want to have some fun, cheese quesadilla wedges. We definitely suggest making extra.
For the best guacamole, you will need ripe avocados. You’ll know when an avocado is ripe when it gives just slightly when squeezed. Keep unripe avocados at room temperature until they are ready. For more about how to buy, cut and store avocados see our tutorial. Try not to over mash or puree avocados when making guacamole. You want a chunky avocado dip, not smooth.

INGREDIENTS:
  • 1/4 cup finely minced onion
  • 3 ripe Haas avocados
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lime juice (or lemon juice)
  • 1 large Plum or Roma tomato, deseeded and diced
  • 1/4 cup cilantro leaves and tender stems, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, or more to taste
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons minced jalapeño or Serrano pepper, optional
DIRECTIONS
  1. Add diced onion to a small bowl then cover with warm water, set aside. This “de-flames” the onions, making them less intense.
  2. Cut avocados in half, lengthwise and use a spoon to scoop out the seed. Scoop out the flesh and add to a bowl.
  3. Add lime juice then use a fork to gently mash until creamy, but still chunky. Stir in the tomato, cilantro, cumin, de-flamed onions, salt and diced peppers (if using). Taste the guacamole and adjust with additional salt, peppers, or lime juice.
  4. Serve immediately or cover with plastic wrap by pushing the plastic wrap down onto the guacamole and refrigerate up to one day.
