Holy guacamole, this guac is good. Creamy, zesty, and just the right amount of spice, this guacamole is about a classic as it gets. But feel free to switch things up and make it your own. For instance, add a scoop of greek yogurt for extra creamy guacamole or add diced jalapenos for a kick that will keep the spice-averse away and leave more for you. Enjoy with a bag of your favorite corn tortilla chips or add a dollop to tacos or nachos

  • ¼ cup cilantro leaves, chopped

Recipe notes and variations

  • Be sure to use fresh limes for the best flavor. And feel free to use more than 1/4 lime, or even a lot more.
  • According to super-star chef, Alton Brown, letting your guacamole  sit at room temperature for an hour or two will help the flavor meld
  • While classic guacamole usually calls for red onions, if you’re out, white onions will add that crisp crunch you’re looking for. 
  • Add a spoonful to chili for added flavor and color.
