This recipe is called the best guacamole because it’s simple, basic, and usually eaten in one sitting regardless of how much of it you make.

Only recently did I find  my love of guacamole. I know, 30 years old and just discovering how awesome guacamole is, I’m a little behind the avocado fan bus.

I think guacamole is best this way, with clean flavors and small differences in texture. And the best part? No tomatoes or cilantro gunking it up. It’s not that I hate tomatoes, I actually love eating them straight from the garden, but most store bought tomatoes lack flavor or have weird texture (to mushy and grainy or too solid) when they aren’t in season and I don’t care for them in my food. And cilantro….it is not my friend. Unless done subtlety or in the right combination I think cilantro ruins most dishes (I will still have some on the side for guest- I’m not a barbarian).


The beauty of this recipe is its simplicity. 7 ingredients come together in less than 5 minutes and can be devoured in the same amount of time if you’re not careful.  This guacamole is the perfect base to start with. Add any extras you want for what mood you’re in. I like it as is with chips or topping on my tacos.  We’ve also been adding it to our nachos lately. Super good.

Whats your favorite way to eat guacamole?


This recipe is perfect for topping Nachos, Taco Salad Bowls, Breakfast Nachos, Breakfast Tacos, Pulled Pork Tacos….You get the idea



  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Total Time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: 4 1x


  • 3 Large Avocados
  • 3 Large Cloves of garlic
  • 1/2 Small Onion
  • 1 Green onion
  • 1/2 Lime
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Pepper


  1. Cut the avocados in half, remove the seed, and scoop out the insides with a spoon and place the goods in a bowl.
  2. Using a potato masher, mash the avocado until you get your desired consistency (I like mostly smooth). Set aside.
  3. Mince the garlic cloves or use a handy-dandy garlic crusher to get it nice and small. Chop the onion and green onion into desired size pieces.   Place the onions and garlic in the bowl with the avocado.
  4. Squeeze the lime over everything, making sure not to drop any seeds, and season with Salt and Pepper. Stir till everything is combined and enjoy.
