The BEST Homemade Guacamole recipe – a super simple recipe loaded with fresh produce that tastes great! Avocados, lime juice, onion, garlic, cumin, cilantro, jalapeño, salt, and pepper. Whip up a batch for taco night with some crunchy tortilla chips. This is also great on burgers, sandwiches, eggs, baked potatoes, or on toast for Southwestern Avocado Toast! YUM! SO many possibilities! Give this a try ASAP! I promise you won’t be disappointed!
In a medium mixing bowl, use a fork or a meat masher to mash the avocados to your desired consistency.
Add lime juice, onion, jalapeno, cilantro, garlic, cumin, salt, and pepper. Stir to combine.
Fold in chopped tomato.
I used regular-sized avocados, not large/jumbo avocados.
What is the best way to keep guacamole fresh? To keep the guacamole from turning brown, press plastic wrap directly onto the dip. You want to eliminate any air pockets.
Another popular storage method is placing the guacamole in the bottom of an air-tight container and covering it with lukewarm water before sealing the container. When ready to serve the dip, pour off the water and stir.
How long does guacamole last? Homemade guacamole usually lasts 1 to 2 days.
For a spicier dip, leave the seeds and membranes on the chopped jalapeños.
Don't like cilantro? Feel free to leave it out of the recipe.
Sometimes I substitute a can of drained Rotel diced tomatoes and green chiles for the diced tomatoes in the dip.
