-Lime -Roma Tomatoes -Jalapeño -Red Onion -Cilantro -Avocados -Salt
For this simple version of guacamole you’ll need avocados, Roma tomatoes, jalapeño, lime, red onion, salt, and chopped cilantro.
Prep all the add-ins first. Finely dice the tomatoes, red onion, and jalapeño. Roughly chop the cilantro, and juice the lime.
Remove the peels and pits from the avocados, then place them in a bowl.
Mash the avocados. Leave them a little chunky or mash them completely smooth. It’s up to you. I like them a little chunky.
To the mashed avocado add the diced tomato, diced red onion, diced jalapeño, chopped cilantro, lime juice, and salt. Start with about lime juice and salt, then add more after tasting.
Mix everything together well, then give it a taste and adjust the salt and lime to your liking. I usually end up using about lime juice and salt total.
To store your leftover guacamole without it turning brown, make sure to add a layer of plastic wrap directly on the surface of the guacamole. Press out as many of the air bubbles as possible to prevent browning.
