  • 1 jalapeno, seeded and finely minced
  • 1/2 to 1 small onion, finely grated or minced (I use about 1/2)
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely minced
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, finely chopped (could sub cilantro)
  • 8 avocados
  • juice of 3 limes
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon sea salt (or to taste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper (or to taste)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 or 2 tomatoes, seeded and chopped


  1. In a large bowl, add jalapeño, onion, garlic cloves, and parsley.
  2. Cut avocados lengthwise, remove pits, and dig out flesh with a spoon. Add to bowl.
  3. Squeeze lime juice over the top of avocados.
  4. Add salt, pepper, and cumin to bowl.
  5. Use a potato masher to mash avocados to desired consistency.
  6. Test seasoning and add more salt or pepper as needed.
  7. Add tomatoes and stir with a spoon to make sure all contents are well combined. Serve immediately. (Note: If not eating right away, place plastic wrap on top of the surface of guacamole and put in fridge to slow oxidation. You can also put the avocado pit in the guacamole to slow the browning).
