Fresh Guacamole

My guacamole recipe is simple and delicious! Ripe creamy avocados are mixed with lime juice, purple onion, cilantro, and spices into a chunky style guacamole that sticks to the chips. Don't let sour cream come near this baby!
Course: Appetizer, Side Dish, Snack


  • 3 ripe avocados
  • 1/2 cup purple onion finely diced
  • 1/8-1/4 cup of fresh cilantro chopped
  • juice of 1/2 a lime reserve the other half for adjusting the acidity after mixing
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 pinch of kosher salt


  • Cut the avocados around the circumference and discard the seeds.
  • Scoop out the flesh and place into a large mixing bowl.
  • Add the juice of 1/2 a lime and with a fork or potato masher, mash the avocado until mixed. I like my guacamole chunky, but you can mix it until smooth.
  • Add the diced onion, cilantro, salt, and spices. Mix well.
  • Adjust the salt and lime juice to taste.


Tip for taking out an avocado seed- place the cut avocado in a thick dish towel. Grab firmly and take a sharp knife and "hit" the seed very very carefully! Don't cut your hand. Slowly twist the knife in the seed and lift. Voila!
