  • 2 Avocado's (ripe) Should they be a little too firm: place overnight in a paper sack or microwave for 10-20 secs power at 80 percent.
  • 1 M/L Tomato
  • 1 Lime Juice over your bowl.
  • 2-3 M/L Jalapeno's De-vein & seed for milder version.
  • 2-3 Cloves Garlic
  • 1/2 Medium Onion
  • 2-3 Stems Cilantro (more or less is fine) To taste
  • 1-2 t cumin To taste
  • 1 1/2 t salt To taste
  • 1/2 t black pepper To taste


  • Wash all of your produce. Water with white vinegar or water with 1T of salt & 1/3 cup of lemon juice. Soft skin fruit 3 minute soak, other fruit and veggies 8 minutes, rinse then store or prep.
    Saucer holding to avocado's, one tomato - ready to make my healthy guacamole recipe.
  • Have all your items assembled to keep time and mess at a minimum. I leave avocado's for almost next to last in prep. Start cutting and chopping. If you want more tips on the easiest way to do this refer to pictures or video. Size of pieces is a total personal preference. Sometimes the avocados will be riper than others, which can cause it to have a creamer texture. We prefer chunks.
  • Add each ingredient to the bowl as you remove it from your cutting board or chopper. Spices go last. Squeezing lime over all ingredients in the bowl last. Stir, cover and refrigerate till time to serve.



I try to keep in mind that I keep the avocado's a 2 to 1 ratio to the tomato's. Ex: 4 avocado, 2- 3 tomato's, extra pepper 1/2 to a whole lime juiced. This recipe is extremely flexible. You can scale it up or down for correct serving size. Your spices and seasonings will all depend on your taste. All of the above will give you a place to start. Use less, then add more. ALWAYS easier to add these things a little at a time. Taking away isn't really an option. You can throw in extra produce, if you happen to get a little too much of something though. Don't just trash it. Save a pit or two to add to bowl for storage to keep color fresh.
