Spicy Loaded Guacamole

A recipe for fresh, spicy guacamole loaded with red onion, tomato, and a touch of lime juice for maximum flavor. Takes minutes to make and SO much better than store-bought!

  • Yield: about 1 1/2 - 2 cups guacamole 1x


  • 1 1/2 avocados, peeled and pitted
  • 1 roma tomato, diced
  • 1/2 red onion, minced
  • 1 small jalapeño* (or 1/2 a large one), minced
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 3/8 teaspoon sea salt


  1. Use a large mortar and pestle, or a bowl and fork, to mash the avocado.
  2. Add tomato, onion, jalapeno, and lime juice. Sprinkle cumin and salt on top. Mix all ingredients together well.
  3. Serve with tortilla chips for dipping (or however you want!) Cover any leftovers with plastic wrap, or transfer to an airtight container, and keep refrigerated.


*If possible, use a torch to scorch the jalapeño skin before mincing (for added flavor). Use a pair of kitchen tongs to hold the jalapeño while scorching. The amount of jalapeño used can also be cut in half for a more mild guacamole.
