- 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
- Mash avocado, lime juice, and salt together in a bowl with a fork until mostly smooth, retaining some chunks of avocado.

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.

Bernardo de la Vega says:
Great traditional guacamole recipe. Some people love tomatoes in their guacamole while a traditional mexican guacamole recipe has no tomatoes in it.
Tal Levitas says:
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!
Jessica Scott says:
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.
Nick Myott says:
This is perfect!! Served on top of the baby bell peppers stuffed with turkey. So simple, and so flavorful!
frances thomas says:
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!
