Who doesn’t love to whip up a quick and easy guacamole while on vacation? This fairly classic version is my favorite recipe and takes all of about 10 minutes to make.

The Best Ever Guacamole Recipe
Recipe type: dip
Makes 2 ½ cups.
  • 3 ripe Hass avocados, halved lengthwise and pit removed
  • ½ medium onion, finely diced
  • 1 small tomato, seeds and core removed, finely diced
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • ½ large jalapeno, seeded and finely diced
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cumin
  • Juice of a lime
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 dash Tabasco (optional)
  1. With the tip of a knife, score the avocado flesh and scoop it into a medium bowl. Mash with a fork or potato masher until fairly smooth. Stir in the remaining ingredients, mixing well, but gently, and serve immediately.
