  • 4 avocados
  • 1/4 cup diced red onion
  • 1 jalapeno seeded and diced
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt or to taste


  • Dice the red onion and jalapeno, chop the cilantro, and mince the garlic. I use an alligator chopper to make quick work of all the dicing.
  • Cut the avocados in half lengthwise and pop out the seed. Use a spoon to scoop out the flesh and put the avocado into a bowl.
  • Mash the avocado with a fork - you want some large chunks in there, so don't pulverize it.
  • Stir in the cilantro, diced onion, diced jalapeno, and minced garlic.
  • Add about 1 tablespoon of lime juice and add a pinch of salt. Mix well and adjust the salt.
  • Serve and dig in!


Chef Jenn's Tips

  • Like your guac spicy? Use serrano chilis instead of jalapeno.
  • Lime and salt are essential to guacamole. Start with the suggested amounts and add more to suit your taste buds.
  • Fresh garlic adds the best flavor!
  • You can add tomatoes, mango, sour cream, baby shrimp, and so much more to guacamole to transform the flavor.
