This is the old, classic, simple way of making a good guacamole. The Hass avacados give a wonderful buttery taste.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 large ripe hass avocados
  • 2 small ripe tomatoes, preferably romas,chopped
  • 78.07 ml cilantro, chopped
  • 44.37 ml finely minced onions
  • 1 lemon, juice of
  • 1-2 jalapeno, to taste
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2.46 ml salt


  1. Mash the avocado, leaving a few rough chunks.
  2. Stir in the remaining ingredients.
  3. Serve within 30 minutes with chips, or as a garnish to other dishes.
  4. It is best to make just before serving, but if you have to hold longer, place plastic wrap directly on the surface of the guacamole to keep from unsightly darkening.

Miss Annie Yes...we love guacamole with lemon juice! I added a little hot sauce to it for a bite, and salsa. I also added a tsp of sour cream and a few turns of blk pepper. Absolutely great! Thank you for sharing this recipe.
