Healthy Guacamole Ingredients

3 ripe avocadoes
2 tablespoons of fresh cilantro leaves
1 large tomato
1 tablespoon of lime juice
1 small red onion
1 jalapeno pepper
sea salt to taste

Healthy guacamole

Instructions

Cut each avocado in half and use a spoon to scoop out all of the avocado flesh. Be sure to remove the pit of the avocado before you begin mashing it. Put the insides of the avocado into a medium-sized mixing bowl. Mash the avocado lightly, keeping it slightly chunky. Mashing it too much will destroy the texture, and guacamole is best served when it is full of tasty chunks of avocado.

Cut the tomato in half and remove the seeds and juice. If you want, you can save the tomato juice to use in another recipe (waste not want not!). Then, chop up the rest of the tomato into small chunks and add it to the avocado. Mince two tablespoons of cilantro leaves and add them to the mix as well. Next, mince the small red onion and jalapeno pepper finely. The seeds should be removed from the jalapeno before you add it to the rest of the ingredients. Mix in the jalapeno and red onion.

For a final touch, add a tablespoon of lime juice and a pinch of sea salt. If you prefer, you can use lemon juice, or squeeze the juice from a fresh lemon or lime into the guacamole. Once you’ve added the lime (or lemon) juice and the sea salt, mash the ingredients together one more time. The healthy guacamole is ready to serve!

Extra Tips For This Healthy Guacamole Recipe

This guacamole tastes excellent when used as tortilla dip, but it also can be served with tacos, black beans or even spread over grilled chicken.

There are many possible variations to the recipe. You can replace the red onion with a white onion if you prefer. If you don’t have sea salt, regular table salt will work fine. The jalapeno pepper can be replaced with a Serrano chili. And if you don’t want to mash the ingredients by hand, the blender is an alternative option.
