  • 2 large, ripe avacados You can tell avacados are ripe when you squeeze them and they give slightly.
  • 3/4 cup cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 1/3 cup diced red onion
  • 1-2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cilantro, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp celery salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp ground coriander
  • 1/4 tsp hot sauce You can use any hot sauce you prefer and adjust according to hot much heat you can take. I use Cholula Original Hot Sauce
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • juice of one or two limes Adjust depending on how tangy you like your guacamole.


  1. Half your avacado, remove the seed and discard. Scoop out guacamole flesh and put into a medium bowl.

  2. To the avacado add cherry tomatoes, red onion, garlic, cilantro, celery salt, ground cumin, ground coriander, hot sauce, salt and pepper.

  3. Mash everything together using a potato masher or a fork until it reaches your desired consistency. I prefer a guacamole that is creamy but still has a few chuncks of avacado. But make it how you want!

  4. Add the juice of one lime, mix and then taste. If you prefer a bit more zing, add a bit more lime juice.

  5. Chill for 15 minutes but ensure you put a piece of plastic wrap up against the guacamole to prevent a skin from forming and discoloration.

  6. Serve with tortilla chips or pita chips.
