Everyone loves a good side of guac, and it’s the perfect addition to your Taco Tuesday. Guacamole is also a really good way to get those magic fruits we call Avocados into your diet. Avocados are a perfect, delicious source of those essential healthy fats and has nearly zero sugar. They also have great benefits for your brain, having the highest concentration of brain protecting antioxidants of any fruit or vegetable.
So the next time you are making tacos, just grab a few extra ingredients and while you are browning that beef or slow cooking those carnitas, whip up some of this guacamole. I promise, if you are anything like me, you will never make tacos without it again.

Prep: 10 min
Total: 10 min
- 3 Large Avocados
- 1 Roma Tomato
- 1 Jalapeño
- 1/4 Large Red Onion
- 3 Garlic Cloves
- 1 Lime
- 1 Tbls Chopped Cilantro
- 1/4 Tsp Cumin
- Grab a medium size bowl, cutting board, and your favorite knife.
- Start by small dicing the tomato and jalapeño after removing the seeds and core from each. Leave some of the jalapeño seeds if you want it to be spicier.
- Then go ahead finely chop the red onion and cilantro.
- Mince the garlic cloves.
- Add your tomatoes, jalapeños, red onion, cilantro, and garlic to the bowl.
- Cut the lime in half and start with only juicing half of the lime into the bowl.
- Add the cumin (this gives it that extra southwest punch) and a few pinches of salt.
- Cut the avocados in half and core them (save the pit for later). Then scoop the creamy avocado out of the peel and into the bowl. (click the link at the bottom of this post to buy the avocado peeler I use, it’s worth the extra bang for the little buck).
- Use a large spoon to mix everything together until it is a creamy texture (I prefer mine to be a little clumpy personally, but it’s your call)
- Then add more salt and lime juice to your liking, it’s your guacamole, so make it taste the way you want.
- Now you can either serve it immediately, or take the pit from the avocado you saved earlier and place it in the middle of the guacamole (the pit helps slow down the oxidation process and keeps the guacamole from browning too fast) and set the bowl in the refrigerator to cool until serving.
- Enjoy your homemade guacamole!
