  • Note: To make enough guacamole: use 1 avocado per person and adjust ingredients accordingly.
  • 4 avocados
  • juice squeezed from 1/2 large orange
  • juice squeezed from one lime
  • sea salt black pepper
  • 1/2 purple onion diced
  • 1 small tomato diced
  • handful of cilantro chopped
  • 1 serrano pepper diced very finely (optional)


  • Assemble the following into a bowl:
  • Peel avocados or carefully spoon out the flesh, keeping the avocado and intact as possible. Cut into large chunks.
  • Squeeze the juices of orange and lime over avocado.
  • Season with salt and pepper
  • Add in chopped onion, tomato, cilantro
  • Carefully mix together. You don't want the avocado turned into mush.
  • Season again with salt as needed, perhaps another squeeze of lime.
  • Serve immediately.
