  • 1 tablespoon sweet onion minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh cilantro minced

  • salt and pepper

Recipe Notes

Dress it Up:
1. If you enjoy your guac spicy, add one finely diced jalapeno pepper.
2. For corn guacamole, chop cooked kernels off of 1 to 2 cobs of corn and add to guacamole after mixing.
Change it Up:
1. Substitute dried seasonings for the garlic, onion, and cilantro. As a general rule, when substituting dried seasonings for fresh, use 1/3 as much as they are more concentrated.
