Perfect guacamole doesn’t need lots of bells and whistles – just ripe avocados, some simple seasoning and a light dusting of red onions and cilantro for punch.



  • 3 ripe avocados
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 ½ heaping tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • Scant ¼ cup of finely diced red onion
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Tortilla chips or veggies for serving


  1. Scoop the avocado into a large bowl and mash with a fork (or a potato masher works great here!)
  2. Add the lime juice, salt, onion and cilantro and stir to combine
  3. Check for seasoning and enjoy with chips, on top of burgers or bowls, or in any way your avocado loving heart desires!


  1. If you like your guacamole spicy, adding some finely diced jalapeño here would be perfect.
