“This is the recipe I use for my husband and I... It's an easy recipe to follow and thankfully uses only 1 avocado.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 avocado
  • 14 onion, chopped finely
  • 12 tomatoes, chopped finely (I like to use Roma tomatoes)
  • 1 jalapeno, chopped finely
  • 1 tablespoon cilantro, chopped finely
  • 14 lime, juiced
  • 14 teaspoon salt (to taste)


  1. Prepare the chopped onion, tomato, jalepeno, and cilantro before preparing the avocado.
  2. To these, add the salt and lime juice.
  3. Now add the avocado and save the pitt. I find that cutting the avocado lengthwise and around, and then twisting it open like a bottle seems to work best. You can then spoon out the meat of it easily and toss the skins.
  4. With a fork, mash and mix the avocado with the remainder of the ingredients.
  5. When transferring to the serving bowl, be sure to add the pit because this prevents the guacamole from browning.
