  • 3 ripe avocados, halved and pitted
  • 2 tbsp (45 ml) fresh-squeezed lime juice and freshly grated zest from 1 lime
  • Fine sea salt


  • Scoop the flesh from the avocados with a spoon into a bowl.
  • Add the lime zest, 2 tablespoons lime juice and 1/2 teaspoon salt.
  • Press down gently on the avocado mixture with a potato masher or back of a wooden spoon until it's creamy with some visible chunks.
  • Taste for seasoning. Add more lime juice and salt to taste.


  • Use ripe Hass avocados in this recipe. It’s usually the variety you’ll find in most markets and grocery stores.
  • Don’t be shy about adding salt. It works magic with the fatty avocado and the bright acidity in the lime juice.
  • Serve within one day for best quality.
  • To keep it fresh, squeeze a few more drops of lime juice over the top and cover tightly with plastic.

Enjoy with chips. You can also jazz up with some simple ingredients, adding to guacamole:

  • Finely chopped red onion
  • Chopped fresh cilantro leaves
  • Sliced or finely chopped hot green chili, like a jalapeño or serrano.
  • Tomato
