This easy guacamole is for you if you don't want cilantro or tomatoes in your guac. You only need 5 minutes and a few ingredients to make this super tasty dip. 


Units Scale
  • 2 Hass Avocados
  • 1/3 cup red onions
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt


  1. Wash the outside skin of the avocados.
  2. Cut the avocado in half, starting at the stem.
  3. Remove the pit by gently tapping a chef's knife on the pit and lifting the pit from the avocado.  If the pit sticks to the knife, place the pit against the inner edge of a bowl and pull the knife away from the pit.  
  4. Score the avocado.  Then place a metal spoon between the flesh of the avocado and the peel and scoop it out. Place the diced avocado in a bowl.
  5. Dice the red onion into 1/8 -1/4 inch cubes.  Add them to the avocado.
  6. Remove the peel from the garlic and crush the garlic in a garlic press.  Add the garlic to the avocado and onion.
  7. Add the remaining ingredients, ground cumin, lime juice, and salt.  
  8. Mash the mixture with the back of a fork or a potato masher to the desired consistency.
  9.  Serve immediately or cover with plastic wrap, ensure the plastic wrap touches the guacamole, and refrigerate until ready to use.  
  10. Guacamole can be stored in the refrigerator 2-3 days before it begins to brown.
  11. Serve with tortillas, chips, or veggies or as a topping with your favorite food.
  12. Enjoy!
