The Best Guacamole


This is truly the best guacamole you’ll ever eat, or as my husband says, ‘best guacamole in the universe’!



2 ripe avocados, halved

34 Tablespoons chopped cilantro, to taste

1 Tablespoon minced onion, we like red onion or shallots

1 Tablespoon minced jalapeno

Optional: 1 small clove garlic, minced

1 Teaspoon fresh lime juice

1/21 Teaspoon of sea salt, to taste

1/2 cup quartered cherry tomatoes, or any diced ripe tomatoes of your choice


Cut the avocados in half and remove the pits. Using a spoon, scoop out the avocado from the skins, and add them to a bowl.

Add the cilantro, onion, and jalapeno to the bowl. Using the back of a fork, mash the ingredients into the avocados to release extra flavor. Make sure to leave some chunks of avocado for texture.

Stir in the rest of the ingredients to taste and serve immediately.
