It’s hard to beat the freshness and flavor of homemade guacamole! Fresh Guacamole is creamy and full of delicious textures, perfect for serving as a dip or as a complement to your favorite Mexican dish! Avocados are mashed and mixed with crunchy onions, savory garlic, herby cilantro, and tangy lime juice for a creamy and zesty bite. For some spice, you can add some jalapeño and cumin into the Fresh Guacamole; it’s the dip that you can customize to your heart’s desire! So get dipping!


3 medium avocados
2 tablespoons onions, minced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 small jalapeno chile, optional, stemmed, seeded, and minced
1/4 cup cilantro leaves, minced
salt, to taste
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin, optional
2 tablespoons lime juice


Step 1

Carefully cut the avocados in half and remove the pits.

Step 2

Scoop out the flesh into a large bowl. Dispose of the skin.

Step 3

Using a fork or potato masher, lightly mash the avocado. If you prefer your guacamole to be more chunky, do not fully mash all of the avocados.

Step 4

Add the minced onion, minced garlic, chile, cilantro, salt, cumin, and lime juice and mix until just combined.

Step 5

Add additional salt, if needed, to taste. Serve with tortilla chips!
