  • 3 ripe avocados
  • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 3/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • 2 Tbs. freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 3 Tbs. minced fresh cilantro


  1. Remove flesh from avocados, keeping 1-2 pits on the side. Lightly mash avocado with a fork. Add in salt, pepper, garlic powder, lime juice, and cilantro. Continue to mash until desired consistency. Add additional salt, pepper, lime juice, and cilantro, to taste.
  2. Return pit(s) to guacamole, to help the guacamole from browning, if not serving immediately.
