This is my best ever Guacamole! It’s not traditional, but absolutely delicious. This recipe was influenced by my amazing online Mexican community.

Table of Contents

You can enjoy this with the classic pairing of tortilla chips, or with freshly cut, crunchy vegetables! Use veggies such as carrots, cucumber, jicama, and bell peppers.

Some optional additions that also work wonderfully: chopped fresh red onion or garlic mixed into the Guacamole or topping the dip with a sprinkle of Tajin seasoning.


A perfectly simple and delicious guacamole, which can be customized with red onion, garlic, Tajin, and many other additions.

  • 3 large avocados, mashed and ripe
  • 1 jalapeño, finely chopped (seeds removed depending on spice tolerance)
  • 1 roma tomato , finely chopped (seedless or remove the seeds)
  • salt to taste
  • 1 lime, small
  • ¼ cup cilantro , or chopped parsley to taste


  • Peel the avocados and discard the pits.
  • Add the avocados to a large bowl or a mortar, and using a fork, a potato masher, or a pestle, mash until smooth (or leave slightly chunky, depending on your preference).
  • Add the chopped jalapeño, tomato, pinch of salt, the juice of the lime, and chopped cilantro.
  • Mix and enjoy!



Some optional but wonderful additions: Add 1 small red onion, chopped. Add 1 small garlic clove, chopped.
Try adding a dash of Tajin seasoning (a delicious, mild chile-lime-salt seasoning that comes in a small plastic bottle). You can find Tajin at Latin and Hispanic supermarkets, and sometimes in the ethnic section of grocery stores. 
Depending on your heat tolerance, you may want to remove the ribs and seeds of the jalapeño.

Hi! I'm Sneji. Nice to meet you!

I am more commonly known as “The Modern Nonna” on social media where I create easy home cooked meals with a modern twist. I was born and raised in Sofia, Bulgaria and learned how to cook at the best culinary school in the world – my grandma’s kitchen. I lived in Greece on the Island of Crete with my parents for a while and then moved to Toronto, Canada when I was in grade 5. I started to really cook and experiment with food 11 years ago when I was 21 years old. Everything I currently know is a reflection of some part of my life…
