Easy Guacamole

Growing up, guacamole was a luxury at the restaurant.  And we never really made it at home.  So you can imagine when we make fajitas at home now and I’m in the kitchen, I make a giant vat of guacamole.  And it goes on everything.  My recipe has nothing unhealthy in it and it has a special ingredient that keeps it from browning!  It’s the only way I get away with making so much.  My son loves it and it’s great the next day on some toast or in a sandwich.  It takes minutes to make!  

You’re wondering about the secret ingredient.  It’s white onions!  Plenty of them.  Onions naturally have a component that help the avocados stay bright.  If you don’t want chunks of onion in the guacamole, just cut a white onion into big rings and lay on top of the guacamole when you store it in the fridge.  It seems to work best with white onions so I stick to those.  Now let’s get to the recipe.


Here’s what you need:

6 large ripe avocados

1 tomato

1 medium white onion

1 large jalapeño 

Handful cilantro chopped

Juice of half a large lime

Himalayan Salt to taste (I use Flavorgod Pink peppercorn and himalayan salt)

  1. Scoop out the avocado in a large bowl and roughly mash it with a potato masher or fork.  
  2. Add in chopped tomato, onion, jalapeño, and cilantro.  Mix to incorporate.
  3. Add lime juice and salt to taste.  Mix.
  4. Enjoy!

This guacamole has such a bright fresh taste.  In my opinion it’s better than the restaurant!  Let me know how you love it!
