Author Layla Pujol


  • 3 ripe avocados
  • 1/2-1 lime - adjust to taste
  • ½ cup finely diced onion
  • 2 finely chopped serrano peppers deveined and seeded - can also use jalapeños or your choice of spicy peppers - omit if you don't want a spicy guacamole
  • 1-2 garlic cloves crushed (optional)
  • 2 tbs finely chopped cilantro
  • Salt to taste
  • Optional – 1-2 tomatoes diced


  • Slice the avocados lengthwise and remove the seeds.
  • Use a spoon to remove the avocado flesh, place it in a large bowl, drizzle the lime juice on top, and mash the avocados until pureed, I like to leave a few small chunks to give it some consistency.
  • Add the diced onion, peppers, crushed garlic, chopped cilantro, tomatoes (if using) and salt to taste, mix well and serve immediately as a dip with chips or a side dish.
