Tommy’s Guacamole


Original recipe found here.

When my son asked his Alexa gadget for a guacamole recipe, this is what it came up with. It turned out to be so delicious we decided it would be our go-to recipe.  There is nothing particularly special about the ingredients used, but I find the proportions just right, and the guacamole comes out perfectly every time.


  • 3 avocados – peeled, pitted, and mashed
  • 1/2-1 lime, juiced
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup diced onion (I like white)
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1-2 roma (plum) tomatoes, diced
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 pinch ground cayenne pepper (optional)


  1. In a medium bowl, mash together the avocados, lime juice, and salt.
  2. Mix in onion, cilantro, tomatoes, garlic, and cayenne pepper.
  3. Refrigerate 1 hour for best flavor, or serve immediately.
