Authentic Guacamole

Authentic Guacamole


  • 6 ripe Hass avocados, peeled and seeded
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 6 finely chopped green onions
  • 1/2 jalapeño pepper, slit lengthwise, seeded, and minced
  • 1/2 cup chopped seeded tomato
  • 1-2 limes, juiced (1/4 cup juice)
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


  1. Put all of the ingredients in a bowl and mix well with your fingers, allowing some chunks to remain. Taste and adjust seasonings as you prefer.

  2. Serve immediately or cover with plastic wrap, which should be flush with guacamole to keep air out and prevent browning, for up to 1 hour prior to serving. Just before serving, remove the wrap and serve with tortilla chips.
