  • 3 large avocados
  • 1 tsp. garlic minced
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 tbsps. lime juice
  • 1/4 tsp. cumin powder
  • 3 tbsps. fresh cilantro chopped
  • 2 tbsps. purple onion finely mined


  • Minced the garlic, dice the onions and chopped cilantro.
  • Add in the lime juice, salt and cumin powder.
  • Peel the avocados, remove the stone and mash them with a fork.
  • Fold everything together well and pour in a bowl. Drizzle some olive oil (optional) and serve with tortilla and pita chips.



  • Use ripe avocados that give a little when you squeeze them. Unripe avocados will be less creamy and harder to mash. I use avocados that are not too ripe, this gives the guacamole a nice green color. Buy them just about ripe but not too soft.
  • Mash the avocados by hand with a fork. Don't be tempted to use a food processor. This will result in a soupy guacamole!
  • If you don't like the taste of cilantro you can swap this with some fresh parsley so that you still get a herby hit of freshness.
