Best Guacamole Ever Ingredients

  • 3 Haas avocados, halved, seeded and peeled
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1/2 red onion, diced
  • 1/2 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
  • 2 Roma tomatoes, seeded and diced

Tips for Buying Avocados

You want to buy ripe but not over-ripe Hass avocados (the standard grocery store variety). Look for avocados that are gentle to squeeze, but not mushy. If you have to choose between hard or mushy avocados, select the hard ones and place them in a paper bag overnight (or for a few days) to ripen.

If you happen to purchase the perfect avocados but won’t be making guacamole right away, store them in the refrigerator to slow their ripening.


In a large bowl place the scooped avocado and lime juice. Using a masher,  mash the avocados, mixing in the lime juice. Next, add the salt, cumin, and cayenne and mix. Then, fold in the onions, pepper, tomatoes, garlic, and cilantro. Let the mixture sit at room temperature for 1 hour before serving.

For best results, serve with tortilla chips and margaritas 😉
