Homemade guacamole is easy to make and so full of flavor. You’ll find yourself coming back to this recipe time and time again.



  • 2 avocados
  • Juice from 1/2 a lime or lemon
  • 14oz. can diced green chiles or guacamole mix
  • 1/4 cup diced onion or onion powder
  • 1/4 cup diced roma tomatoes, or any tomato you have on hand
  • 12 cloves crushed garlic or garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chopped cilantro or ground cilantro
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher or sea salt
  • Add hot sauce for extra spice (optional)


  1. Slice the avocados in half. Remove the pit and scoop the avocado out of the skin and place in a mixing bowl.
  2. Using the back of a fork, mash the avocado against the sides of the bowl until its rich and creamy. You can make your avocado as smooth or chunky as you like.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients and stir together. Taste, adjust seasoning as needed.


  • Be sure to look for avocados that are nice and ripe or leave them out on the counter or in the fridge for a few days to ripen. Once they are ripe they should be easier to mash with a fork.
  • You can serve with toast, tacos, chili, or chips.
