  • 5 medium ripe avocados
  • 1 lime juiced [2 Tbsp lime juice]
  • 1-2 Roma tomatoes small diced
  • cup red onion small diced
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 medium serrano chili or jalapeno pepper seeds removed, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 ¼ tsp garlic salt adjust to taste
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • ½ tsp Mexican oregano
  • few dashes hot sauce


  • Cut the avocados in half and remove the pits. Scoop the avocado flesh into a mixing bowl, reserving 3 pits, set aside.
  • Use a fork or a potato masher to mash until the avocado is chunky smooth. Immediately add the lime juice.
  • Add the remaining ingredients, mixing until well combined.
  • Mix 3 reserved pits into the guacamole, press plastic wrap on top, then store tightly sealed until serving.
  • Serve with tortilla chips or vegetables for dipping.


Mashed avocado can turn brown when exposed to air for too long. I recommend dicing and preparing the mix-in ingredients before cutting the avocados and mashing them for the best results.
