Cilantro isn’t for everyone. That’s why I make guacamole without cilantro. This guacamole comes together in just 5 minutes and has lots of citrus flavors.

You can easily prepare this from-scratch guacamole in less than 10 minutes! You just need to chop and mix! It’s made with fresh avocado, diced tomatoes, and finely chopped red onion, and seasoned with lemon juice, lime juice, garlic, cumin, and salt.

Serve it as a dip alongside tortilla chips, or add it to tacos, enchiladas, or chilaquiles. I also think that guacamole is a delicious addition to a grilled cheese or turkey sandwich.

Classic Guacamole 3

Cilantro is one of the most divisive foods out there. Some people think that it tastes like soap and just the tiniest bit will ruin an entire meal. Cilantro is something that most people either love or hate. I am pretty indifferent, but my sister and mother can’t stand the taste. Knowing they aren’t alone, I leave it out of my guac. If you are one of those people who loves cilantro, go ahead and add as much as you like to this recipe.

It’s easy to customize guacamole based on your preferences. I love cumin, so I use a heavy hand when I add it. I am a bit more conservative when it comes to the red onion since raw red onion has such a strong taste. I like lots of tomatoes.

Classic Guacamole

Usually, I like guacamole without spice, so I left it out. You can make this guacamole spicy by adding some finely chopped jalapeño, some cayenne pepper powder, or a dash of sriracha.

Classic Guacamole

This classic guacamole is made without cilantro, the herb that some people say tastes like soap! This recipe can be made in just 10 minutes and has bright citrus flavors.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes

Ingredients

  • 3 medium-sized Avocados
  • 1 1/2 cups Diced Tomato
  • 1/4 cup Lemon Juice
  • 1/4 cup Lime Juice
  • 1/4 cup Finely Chopped Red Onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Cumin
  • 1 clove Garlic, finely chopped or pressed

Instructions

Slice the avocados in half, remove the pits, and scoop out all of the avocado inside and place in a bowl. Use either a fork or a potato masher to mash as much or as little as you like. I like it pretty chunky, so I am conservative with my mashing.

Add the tomatoes, lemon juice, lime juice, red onion, and garlic. Stir to combine.

Then stir in the salt and cumin, you might want to add more or less. I recommend starting with half and adding more if you like. I like my guacamole to be well seasoned.

Serve right away.

Notes

Raw onion and garlic are strong flavors. You might want to add a little at a time.
