This classic guacamole is easy to make, citrusy, salty, creamy and the perfect classic creation for any Mexican-inspired meal.




  1. Cut avocados in half; remove seeds. Scoop out avocado flesh from the peel; add to a medium mixing bowl (I use this stainless steel bowl). Using a fork or masher, mash the avocados (not too much; it should be a little chunky).
  2. Add the chopped white onion and tomatoes, cilantro, garlic cloves, lime juice, lemon juice, ground sea salt, cumin, black pepper, crushed red pepper and/or cayenne pepper (optional) and mix with a large spoon until blended.
  3. Serve immediately for freshest taste, or refrigerate until ready. Makes roughly 2 cups guacamole.
  4. Pro Tip: To keep the avocado from turning brown- add the guacamole to a glass or plastic sealable container. Before you put the lid on place some wax paper or plastic wrap over the container and press down onto the surface of the guacamole until it’s flat and no air is exposed to the guacamole. Place the lid on over the wax paper/plastic wrap.
