I love love love guacamole. I seriously could sit there all day eating it. It’s fabulous and it’s really easy to make.



  • 5-6 ripe avocados
  • 4 roma tomatoes, diced
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 jalapeño, diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, crushed
  • Handful of cilantro leaves, chopped
  • Juice from 2-3 limes
  • Salt and Pepper to taste


Combine all ingredients into a large bowl and mix well. You can also add a dash of garlic and onion powder if you wish to give some more flavour.

Depending on the size of your avocados (or how much you want to make) you may need more or less of the tomatoes, onions and jalapeños.

Enjoy with your favorite tortilla chip!
