  • 6 avocados , pitted and roughly chopped
  • 2 tomatoes , chopped
  • 1 lemon , juiced (I always use lemons not limes)
  • 1 small red onion , finely diced
  • ½ cup fresh cilantro , finely chopped
  • 2 serrano chile peppers , finely diced (optional or use a few drops chili sauce)
  • 1 tsp salt , or to taste
  • ¼ tsp pepper , or to taste


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


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!!
