  • 6 avocados , pitted and roughly chopped
  • 2 tomatoes , chopped
  • 1 lemon , juiced (I always use lemons not limes)
  • 1 small red onion , finely diced
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro , finely chopped
  • 2 serrano chile peppers , finely diced (optional or use a few drops chili sauce)
  • salt , 1 teaspoon or to taste
  • pepper , 1/4 teaspoon or to taste


  1. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl.
  2. Do not overmix; leave plenty of chunks throughout.
  3. To store, cover the guacamole with plastic wrap, ensuring that the plastic comes in direct contact with the dip.
  4. Store in refrigerator.

Recipe Notes

Supposedly, authentic guacamole uses red onion, does not contain any garlic, and uses jalapeno in place of serranos. I use lemon in place of lime. You will love this guacamole!!
