Fresh & Creamy Guacamole

Not much beats the freshness of hand-made guacamole. If you have 10 minutes and a handful of simple ingredients, this green beauty can be yours to dress up your tacos, salads, sandwiches, or chips!




1 1/2 Persian limes, juiced

3 Haas avocados, peeled and pitted

Handful of cilantro (smaller stems are okay!)

1/3 yellow onion

1 large clove garlic, peeled

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/4 tsp cumin

1/2 tsp Kosher salt


Combine all ingredients in a food processor, pulsing to achieve the level of creaminess or chunkiness you prefer. I use (and adore) the Ninja Master Prep system. Serve fresh or chilled. Great with chips, on tacos, or as a tasty garnish to enchiladas or soups.

    A delicious-sounding guacamole recipe–I’ve made guacamole of my own before, but I’d be interested in trying this.

    Yum. Without a food processor should I hand chop or try a blender?
    Your blog has gorgeous photos!
    Hey, and thanks for following Crossing the Curriculum with Katie.

      Hi, Katie! You definitely can try hand-chopping. You’ll find yourself with a chunkier guac. If you go with a food processor (I use a little Ninja), just pare down the onion to a manageable size, and drop in the rest of the ingredients and you’ll have a super creamy guacamole that’s great for dipping or as a spread on sandwiches. 🙂
