This easy homemade guacamole recipe will become your go-to recipe when you are making Tacos on Taco Tuesday!
As much as I love guacamole, I knew it was time to find a recipe and make it homemade. It can get pretty expensive when you buy the pre-packaged stuff. So I set out to make a delicious batch of the stuff.
Guacamole is one of those condiments that taste absolutely delicious on nachos, tacos, enchiladas, and as a dip with your favorite tortilla chip or pita bread. I like to serve mine in this combination chips and dip bowl that I found on Amazon.
How to Make My Easy Guacamole
Of course, guacamole starts with just a few simple ingredients — avocados, limes, cilantro, and I like to add in just a bit of my easy restaurant salsa.
Here's a tip I learned: If you are not going to use all your avocado, leave the pit in the side you are not using. The pit will keep the avocado from turning brown!
- 3 avocados, halved, seeded and peeled
- 1 lime, juiced
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1/2 teaspoon cayenne
- 1/2 medium onion, diced
- 2 Roma tomatoes, seeded and diced
- 1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- In a large bowl place the avocado and lime juice, and then toss to coat.
- Drain any lime juice that is at the bottom of the bowl, and reserve it for later -- just make sure that the avocados have been coated.
- Using a potato masher or a fork, add the salt, cumin, and cayenne and mash.
- Now, fold in the onions, tomatoes, cilantro, and garlic. Add 1 tablespoon of the reserved lime juice.
- Serve with your favorite tacos for the perfect Taco Tuesday!
