Bowl of The Best Guacamole with onion, lime, jalapenos, and tomatoes. Perfect for CInco De Mayo.



There are lots of guacamole recipes that claim to be ‘the best’, but this recipe uses fresh ingredients, is ridiculously easy, and is super flavorful, truly making it ‘The Best Guacamole’ recipe!  I think your family is gonna love it!



3 large Haas avocados, ripe

½ sweet onion, finely diced and soaked in ice water

2 plum tomatoes, seeded and diced

3 tablespoons cilantro, very finely minced

1 large jalapeno pepper, seeds and veins removed, minced very fine

2 large garlic cloves, minced

2 limes, juiced

½ teaspoon sea salt

1 teaspoon cumin

¼ teaspoon chili powder


Slice the avocados in half, use the knife to ‘whack’ the pit, twist, and remove.  Use a spoon to scoop out the avocado meat into a large bowl.

Use a fork to mash the avocado to your desired texture – chunky or smooth.

Add the onions, tomatoes, cilantro, jalapeno, garlic, lime juice, sea salt, cumin, and chili powder.  Fold the ingredients together until completely combined.

Taste and adjust seasonings for salt, lime, and cumin.

Serve with tortilla chips or spread onto toasted bread.
