Let’s get started!

With Cinco de Mayo just around the corner, I thought I’d share some of my favorite tips for making guacamole. You can use this basic guacamole recipe as a starting point and add to it as you like, or leave it as it is — which is perfectly yummy tasting.


1. Cut the avocados in half. Remove the pit and discard. Scoop the avocado out of its skin and transfer to a medium bowl.


2. Using a fork or a pastry blender, mash up the avocado. It should be smooth and creamy with a few small chunks throughout for texture.


3. Add the lime juice, garlic, red onion, jalapeño, cilantro, cumin, and chipotle powder. Stir to combine. Taste, and add salt and pepper according to your preferences.
