Recipe Source: 


  • 5 avocados, peeled, pitted, and cubed
  • 2 Tbsp lime juice, plus more for topping
  • 12 tsp kosher salt
  • 12 tsp ground cumin
  • 14 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 2 Roma tomatoes, seeded and diced
  • 12 onion, chopped (optional)
  • 2 Tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 Tbsp seeded and chopped jalapeño pepper
  • 1 tsp minced garlic


  1. In a large bowl, combine avocado and lime juice.
  2. Add salt, cumin, and cayenne. Mash avocado mixture using a potato masher or the back of a spoon.
  3. Fold in tomatoes, onion, cilantro, jalapeño, and garlic.
  4. Add additional lime juice over top to help keep guacamole from browning.
  5. Serve with tortilla chips.


  • To store guacamole, place it in a bowl and pour a thin layer of lime juice on top of the guacamole. Cover with plastic wrap and push the plastic down to touch the guacamole. This will prevent air pockets and will keep the guacamole from browning. Store in the refrigerator for 3 to 4 days.
