How to make authentic homemade mexican guacamole

Guacamole is one of the most iconic sauces in Mexican cuisine. Its fresh flavor and creamy texture make it the perfect accompaniment for a variety of dishes.

Below, I’ll show you how to make homemade guacamole, so you never have to settle for store-bought versions again.

How to make homemade guacamole


  • 2 large avocados
  • ½ onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tomato, pulp removed and diced
  • Juice of ½ lemon
  • Several cilantro leaves, finely chopped
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 Mexican chili or spicy chili pepper (optional), preferably jalapeño or serrano, finely chopped


  1. Preparation of ingredients: Finely chop the onion, tomato (without pulp), and cilantro. If you choose to use chili or chili pepper, chop it in the same manner.
  2. Preparation of avocado: Slice the avocados in half and remove the seed. Using a spoon, scoop out the pulp and place it in a medium-sized bowl.
  3. Mix: Mash the avocado with a fork until you reach the desired consistency, whether it’s a smooth puree or leaving some larger chunks. Add the tomato, onion, cilantro, and chili (if you’re including it). Mix well.
  4. Season: Add a pinch of salt and the juice of half a lemon. Stir until all ingredients are well combined.


Guacamole is incredibly versatile. Beyond the traditional tacos, tostadas, and nachos, consider using it as a side for meats, chicken, or even in salads. The key is to experiment and get creative in the kitchen.
