Basic Guacamole Recipe

This Is the Only Guacamole Recipe You'll Need For Cinco de Mayo This Year

In the dip world, there is nothing quite as essential as guacamole. The creamy dip consists of perfectly ripe mashed avocado seasoned with salt. While there are hundreds of recipes, it's nice to have a simple one to start with. Once you've mastered the technique, it's easy to get creative with lots of variations. You can experiment with different types of onion, substitute lemon or orange juice for the lime juice, and change the texture by blitzing in a food processor.
