  • 4 Ripe Avocados
  • 1 tsp Pink Salt or favorite salt
  • 1 Lime juiced
  • 1/2 Red Onion minced
  • 1 medium Ripe Tomato seeds + pulp removed, chopped
  • 1-2 Jalapeno Pepper finely chopped (optional heat level)
  • 1/4 cup Fresh Cilantro finley chopped
  • 1 Bag Chips


  • Cut avocado in half. Remove seed and scoop out flesh with a spoon. In medium bowl mash up with a fork.
  • Add in salt and lime mixing well. The acid in the lime will help delay the avocados from turning brown!
  • Fold in minced onion, chopped tomatoes, pepper, and cilantro. 
  • Cover with plastic wrap removing any space for air. The plastic wrap should be mushed against the guac to keep it fresh. Air causes oxidation which will make it turn brown. Keep chilled until ready to serve!
