We’ve been making this guac recipe for years. It’s an authentic guacamole recipe that I learned to make when I was in Mexico. They don’t measure the guacamole ingredients there – they know exactly how to make it based on how many avocados they have.
Don’t worry, I’ve included instructions on how to make guacamole and the exact ingredients needed.
Homemade Guacamole Recipe
Some people like to add peppers, jalapenos, and/or cumin when making guacamole. Although all of them can be included in guacamole we like our homemade guacamole recipe to be on the citrus side, with lots of fresh lime.
- Avocado – Make sure they are ripe.
- Cilantro – Add more if you like.
- Red Onion – Dice it, add it in, and taste the magic.
- Lime – We like to double up on lime, but you don’t have to.
- Salt – Fresh cracked sea salt is our favorite but you can use table salt.
Don’t forget that you can add 1 teaspoon of cumin for added flavor, or a diced jalapeno to increase the heat. Use a lemon juicer to get the most juice from your lemon.
This is the best guacamole We love enjoying guacamole with chips, on tacos, on gluten free enchiladas, burgers, turkey sandwiches, etc. Homemade guacamole adds depth and flavor to anything that we spread it on.

How to store guacamole
We tend to eat our way through this guacamole in a day or so. If you want to save some to enjoy later simple scoop the guacamole into a glass container with an airtight lid. You can store it for up to 48 hours (probably longer, but it hasn’t lasted any longer in our house).
How to tell if avocado is ripe
Avocados are hard when they are not ripe. If an avocado is ripe, it will give a little or feel softer when you put pressure on it. Avocados tend to ripen from the bottom up to the stem. Feel the bottom of the avocado first.
