Here’s the best simple guacamole with the perfect flavor! Creamy, savory and perfectly balanced, you’ll hear a chorus of “Wow’s” every time you serve it.


  • 3 ripe avocados
  • 1/3 cup white onion, minced
  • 1 roma tomato (about 1/3 cup minced)
  • 1/3 cup cilantro leaves, lightly chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Serrano or jalapeno pepper, minced (optional)


  1. Remove the pit from the avocados. Mince the onion. Mince the tomato. Roughly chop the cilantro.
  2. Scoop the flesh from the avocados into a medium bowl or molcajete. Mash it with pestle or large fork until mostly creamy, with several chunks of avocado dispersed throughout. Stir in the remaining ingredients with a spoon. Adjust the seasoning and add minced spicy pepper of your desired quantity to taste.
  3. Serve immediately with tortilla chips.
