Classic Guacamole

Rated 5.0 based on 5 customer reviews


  • 3 Haas avocados
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped white onion
  • ½ jalapeño pepper, deseeded and minced
  • 1 garlic clove, grated
  • ¼ cup minced fresh cilantro leaves, plus more for garnish


  1. Mash avocado, lime juice, and salt together in a bowl with a fork until mostly smooth, retaining some chunks of avocado.
  2. Stir onion, jalapeño, garlic, and cilantro into the avocado mixture; garnish with additional cilantro to serve.
Mealthy tip:

Guacamole also happens to be good for you: avocados are loaded with fiber, healthy fats and more than 20 vitamins and minerals! And don't forget the other vegetables—onions are high in vitamin C, jalapeños are packed with vitamins A and B6, and cilantro has loads of fiber and vitamin K.

Great traditional guacamole recipe. Some people love tomatoes in their guacamole while a traditional mexican guacamole recipe has no tomatoes in it.

This is an easy and simple Guacamole. It could use a bit more lime and I don't seed my Jalapenos because they're spicy. It's easy and delicious. I just wish Guacamoles were less expensive!

This is a great guac recipe that I've gotten right every time I've made it! Fresher than store bought and better than you'll find at a restaurant.

This is perfect!! Served on top of the baby bell peppers stuffed with turkey. So simple, and so flavorful!

I've found so many guacamole recipes, but something has always been a little off-- too bland, too salty, too thick. This is perfect and I'm using it for every meal for the rest of time!
