We make this guacamole with 4 ingredients (plus salt) in about 5 minutes. It couldn't be an easier side dish or appetizer and it tastes great every single time we make it. It's perfect for when you want a lot of guacamole without a lot of effort.



4 large avocados

Half of a red onion, diced

1/2 cup chopped cilantro

Juice of 2 limes

Salt, to taste (we use between 1/2 and 3/4 teaspoon)


  1. Remove the pits and skin from the avocados and place them into a mixing bowl. Mash until smooth (or your desired consistency).
  2. Add lime juice, red onion, cilantro, and salt to the bowl and mix to combine. Serve! 


See tips above on how to pick the perfect avocados.
