The Hass avocado is one of the most delicious varieties of avocado around, with a rich creamy flesh and superior taste.
This authentic guacamole recipe turns out perfectly every time thanks to a few simple tricks. It’s so easy! Recipe yields about 2 ½ to 3 cups guacamole, depending on your avocados (divide or multiply as necessary).
Best Guacamole recipe
4 medium frozen avocados halves
½ cup finely chopped white onion (about ½ small onion)
¼ cup finely chopped fresh cilantro
1 small jalapeño, seeds and ribs removed, finely chopped
3 tablespoons lime juice (from about 1 ½ limes), or more if needed
¼ teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon kosher salt, more to taste
Using a pastry cutter, potato masher, or fork, mash up the avocado until it reaches your desired texture (I like my guacamole to have some texture, so I stop mashing once there are just small chunks remaining).
Promptly add the onion, cilantro, jalapeño, lime juice, coriander, and salt. Stir to combine.
Taste and add additional salt (I often add up to ½ teaspoon more), until the flavours really sing. If it needs more zip, add a little more lime juice (or, if it tastes too limey already, don’t worry—it will mellow out after a brief rest).
