This classic guacamole starts with mashed ripe avocados and gets a little zing from scallions, jalapeño, cilantro, and lime juice. Serve it with quesadillas and baked tortilla chips and kick back with a cold beer. Or, learn How to Make Nachos and throw your guacamole on top.

What to buy: Look for avocados that give slightly when pressed but are not completely soft. We used Hass avocados.

Game plan: If you prefer your guacamole a little spicier, don’t remove the seeds from the jalapeño.

This recipe was featured as part of our guacamole recipe gallery.

Instructions

  1. 1Scoop the flesh from the avocados into a medium bowl. Mash with the back of a large fork or a potato masher to make a chunky paste.
  2. 2Add the remaining ingredients and stir to combine. Taste and season with additional lime juice and salt as needed. Serve immediately or place a sheet of plastic wrap directly on the surface of the guacamole and refrigerate for up to 2 hours. (The plastic wrap will keep the surface of the guacamole from turning brown.)
