Best Homemade Guacamole

This simple, healthy and chunky guacamole is the best darn guacamole you will ever make or eat. You will never want to eat store bought again. And hopefully, you’ll leave the pits out of your bowl too.
Prep Time15 mins
Total Time15 mins
Course: Appetizer
Cuisine: Mexican
Servings: 5 Cups

Ingredients

  • 5 Regular Avocados (ripe - slightly soft but not mushy)
  • 4 Large Garlic Cloves (minced)
  • 1 Cup Cup Yellow Onion (chopped)
  • 2 Large Roma Tomatoes (chopped)
  • 2 Jalapeños (finely chopped)
  • 2 Limes (juiced) (lime zest is optional)
  • 2 Tablespoons Cilantro (optional because some people hate it)
  • Salt and Pepper to Taste

Instructions

  • Slice avocado in half vertically (slicing around the pit and not through it) and twist to separate. Whack the pit with the sharp edge of a large knife and twist to remove. Pull pit off of knife with towel and toss in the trash. Scoop avocado flesh out with large spoon, chop into slightly large chunks and place in a large bowl. I like to use this 4 blade old chopping tool, but if you don’t have one, just use a knife. They will break down as you stir, so start a little bigger. Immediately, add the lime juice followed by all other ingredients. Gently blend with a large spoon. I do not recommend a fork, mortar and pestle and especially not a food processor. Careful not to over stir it. It really is nice when it still has texture and it’s not just mush.

Notes

Keeping it green... When storing guacamole, place a layer of plastic wrap (cling film) directly on the surface of the guacamole to prevent any air from touching it.
