  • 3 avocados
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons minced yellow onion
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh cilantro
  • 1 jalapeno seeded and minced
  • 1 large clove garlic minced
  • ¾ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper


  • Slice each avocado in half, remove the pit and scoop the flesh into a medium bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients and use a potato masher or large fork to mash the mixture until the avocados are mostly broken down but still have a chunky consistency. Give a final stir with a spoon and serve immediately with tortilla chips.
  • The guacamole can be stored in an airtight container with plastic wrap pressed directly on top of the guacamole in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
