 All you need are a few simple ingredients and tools to make this garlicky, lime-y guacamole! [vegan & gluten free]


  • 2 ripe avocados
  • juice from 1-2 limes (choose 2 if they are on the small size)
  • 1/4 cup finely diced red onion
  • 3-4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • A dash of cayenne pepper
  • Optional ingredients: roma tomatoes, black beans (see note)


  1. Using a large fork, mash all the ingredients in a bowl until you get your desired texture. Chunk or smooth? It’s up to you!


If I have roma tomatoes or black beans kicking around, I like to add them in as well! Dice the tomatoes and mash in!
