Introduction: Easy Amazing Guacamole

About: Hello and Welcome to In the Kitchen With Matt. I am your host Matt Taylor. My goal for the show is to teach you how to cook really good food at home for cheap. Eating out everyday can get expensive, but it doe…

In this instructable I will show you how to make guacamole. This amazing avocado dip recipe is easy to make, with simple ingredients. Nothing like some homemade guacamole and chips to snack on. You can add more or less of the ingredients if you want, the star of the dish is the avocado. If you want to add tomato or sour cream or both, add them. If I can make it, you can make it, let's get started!

Don't forget to follow me and check out my other instructables. :)

Step 1: Ingredients and Tools

  • 4 to 5 medium ripe avocados
  • 1/2 medium white onion
  • 3 to 4 Tbsp of minced fresh cilantro
  • 1 tsp. of salt (5g)
  • 1/8 tsp. of pepper (pinch)
  • 1/2 tsp. of garlic powder (2g)
  • 1 to 2 limes (start with half of a lime, you can always add more later)


  • bowl
  • spoon
  • fork
  • knife

Step 2: Cut the Avocado

First let's prep our avocados. The way I do it, is I cut around it with a knife, twist, and pull each half apart. Then I use my knife on the pit, to get the pit out. Next I slice into each half making a checker pattern, then use a spoon to scoop it out. It is important to use ripe soft avocados. Save the pits! :) You can put the pits in the guacamole to help it from turning brown longer. :)

Step 3: Mix and Stir

Now let's mix in the rest of our ingredients, except for the lime. We will add that last. Use a spoon to mix the ingredients together.

Step 4: Lime It Up!

Now we add in our lime. You can start with half of a lime first if you like, and see what kind of flavor you get. The lime will add some flavor as well as help keep the avocado from turning brown. Next use a fork to further blend everything together. You can leave it chunky or make it more smooth if you like. Add more salt, pepper, and garlic powder as needed. :) There you go, easy amazing guacamole! :) Enjoy!
