Prep Time10 mins
Total Time10 mins
Servings: 2 people


  • 2 ripe avocados, peeled and pitted
  • 1/2 white onion, finely chopped
  • 1 Tbsp. lime juice
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, finely chopped
  • 3/4 tsp. fine sea salt (or to taste)


  • Put all the ingredients into a food processor and pulse until the guacamole reaches your desired consistency. I pulse it until it's almost smooth.*
  • Serve immediately.*
  • Store leftover gucamole in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 2-3 days, though best when fresh.


*If you're not going to be serving the guacamole right away, save the onion for later. (Do not process the onion with the other ingredients). Once the guacamole is ready, transfer it into an air-tight container and scatter the chopped onion on top. Seal the container with a lid, and put it in the fridge. Mix the onion into the guacamole right before serving.
