Our favorite authentic guacamole recipe made with a subtle spicy kick and a profound lime twist.


  • 4 ripe avocados
  • 2 limes, squeezed
  • 23 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1/2 white onion, diced
  • 1 cup tomato, diced
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce (or to taste)


  1. Cut avocados in half lengthwise, remove the pits and scoop into a bowl. Mash until creamy and smooth. Add all ingredients except for the tomatoes and mix well.
  2. Fold in tomatoes last until mixed. Serve immediately.


Be sure to get avocados to desired texture before adding tomatoes. Otherwise they will turn to mush.
