Super easy, only 5 ingredients.


  • 15 oz from 3 medium hass pitted and halved avocados
  • 1 lime (juiced)
  • 1/3 cup red onion (minced)
  • 1 small clove garlic (mashed)
  • 1 tbsp chopped cilantro
  • kosher salt and fresh pepper (to taste)


  • Place the pulp from the avocados in a medium bowl and slightly mash with a fork or a potato masher leaving some large chunks. Add lime juice, salt, pepper, cilantro, red onion, garlic and mix thoroughly.
  • If you are serving this at a later time, a great tip to keep the guacamole from turning brown is to cover tightly with plastic wrap so no air gets on it. Makes 2 cups.
