Easy Homemade Guacamole!

“Food, to me, is always about cooking and eating with those you love and care for.” – David Chang

This is by far one of our favorite appetizers and snacks. Dave’s recipe is super delish & incredibly easy to make. With just a few ingredients, you can have the best homemade guacamole around.

Watch Dave & I make this at my YouTube Channel below!

For full list of ingredients & directions, check it out below~

Our Favorite Recipes

Ingredients: Yields about 2 cups of finished guacamole!

2 to 3 ripe avocados, peeled & pitted

2 Roma tomatoes, diced

1 small red onion diced~ about ¼ cup 

1 large jalapeno pepper, seeded and diced

¼ cup fresh cilantro minced

1 fresh garlic clove minced OR 1 tsp jarred

2 TBSP lime juice or lime from 1 large lime

1 tsp pink Himalayan salt

1 tsp dried cilantro

½ tsp cumin

½ tsp fresh ground pepper

½ tsp garlic powder

½ tsp cayenne pepper

Watch the video to see how Dave removes the pit and fruit from the avocado!

Check out how I mince fresh cilantro as well!

1. Cut Avocado in half as shown in video; remove pit and discard.

2. Using a sharp knife, cut a checker board pattern into the fruit, and then simply press the outside skin to press out the fruit into a bowl! Watch Dave demonstrate in the video.

You can also simply use a spoon and scoop it out.

3. After you’ve cut the avocado’s and placed fruit in the bowl, begin adding each ingredient one at a time, making sure to blend each ingredient in thoroughly.

a. seasonings
b. lime juice
c. minced garlic
d. onion
e. jalapeño
f. tomato
g. fresh cilantro

You can eat right away with your favorite chips!

If you choose to wait, be sure to cover the guacamole with plastic wrap snugly so the wrap is hugging the mixture. Try not to leave any air pockets so it doesn’t turn grey.

I then add a second piece of plastic wrap over that one.

  1. Looks good! Time to make guac again! I make it like you but my hubby insists on fresh cilantro. I will admit that I leave out the jalapeños — I’m all the spice my hubby needs! 🤣
