When it comes to guacamole, forget any ingredient that isn’t REAL. Like, no mayo (we used to put this in as a kid but my Mom is Dutch and couldn’t help herself). Nothing weird. 

Just fresh, fresh, fresh organic produce. That’s it. Follow my lead and you’ll have the tangiest, richest guacamole ever and you’ll never deviate from this basic recipe.  

If you want to hit your guac with a touch of spice, I’d recommend jalapeño. If you gotta have tomato in yours, make sure to remove all the seeds before you add to the mix.  

The correct way to combine everything is with a fork, after meticulously chopping the onion, garlic, and cilantro. If you are lazy however, and in a rush, like moi, I’d highly recommend dumping everything into your food processor and pulsing until you get the consistency you want.  

Guacamole is all about keeping it real, party people. Final tip – save the pit and place into your bowl to keep it from going brown. A squeeze of lemon or lime on top will help also.   This recipe should feed at least 6 people.


  • 5 avocados
  • 1/2 white onion
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • handful of cilantro leaves
  • 2 limes (peel these and put in the entire fruit) 
  • black pepper 
  • salt


  1. Peel your limes and place everything into the food processor. Pulse until your desired consistency is reached.  
  2. Taste for seasoning and serve immediately or place pit into the guacamole so it doesnt get brown.
