  • Avocados: Ripe, but slightly firm. Not too soft and squishy.
  • Cilantro: A staple Mexican herb that adds brightness and freshness.
  • Tomatoes: Preferably Rome tomatoes. Ripe, but slightly firm. We don’t want it to be too watery.
  • Onion: White or yellow is best.
  • Lime juice: For that tangy acidity that pairs beautifully with the cilantro.
  • Jalapeño: You can remove the seeds if you don’t want it too spicy, or use a serrano pepper instead of some extra heat.
  • Salt: Brings all the flavors together!


  • Cut the avocados in half and remove the pit with a sharp knife. Then scoop out the fruit using a spoon and transfer it into a medium mixing bowl.
  • Mash the avocados using a fork, a potato masher, or a molcajete. Using a potato masher is the easiest method because it’s not as messy and gives you a little more control than using a fork, but either works fine.
  • Mix in the chopped cilantro, tomato, onion, lime juice, jalapeño, and salt. Taste and adjust the seasoning if necessary.


  • Choose the right avocados: To make sure your avocado is ripe, it should be a little soft when you give it a squeeze, but still firm. If it’s too soft and leaves a big indentation, then it’s overripe.
    You can also remove the little brown stem at the base to check. If you’re able to remove it easily and the color underneath is green, then there’s a good chance it’s ripe. If the color underneath is brown, it’s likely overripe.
  • Finely mince the onion: If you have people who don’t like the bite of an onion, use a food processor or a cheese grater to finely mince the onion. The flavor will still be there but it will be less pronounced.
