This is a Guacamole Vegan Recipe made with avocado, lime, red onion, cilantro, serrano peppers, and salt.
This is my all-time favorite guacamole recipe. It is so creamy, quick and easy to make. Every time I have friend over this guacamole is requested. Pair it with some tortilla chips and you’re ready to go.
This is a Traditional Guacamole and I would like to discourage people from using tomatoes in their guacamole. It is super important when you are at the grocery store to buy the ripest avocado (always found in the back for some reason) and to make your guacamole that day. The riper the avocado, the more delicious your guac will be – obviously!
You'll only need a few simple ingredients to make this. The exact measurements are listed in the recipe card below. Here's an overview of what you'll need:
- Red onion
See recipe card for Guacamole Vegan quantities.
Put the avocado in a fresh bowl. Add the lime juice and season with and salt. Mash with a fork until smooth and creamy. Stir in the red onion, serrano, cilantro. Taste and adjust as you wish.
Hint: If you prefer this avocado recipe be chunky, don’t make it in the food processor. Instead, you can finely dice the onion, tomatoes and jalapeños with a knife and use your fork to mash your avocado.
Avocado: The avocado should be firm but also gentle to the pressure, but not mushy. It should be dark in color and not green anymore. Use that day if you get the perfect avocado!
Limes: Use fresh limes for this guacamole. Do not use store bought lime juice please!
Salt: Salt is so important to making the perfect guacamole. Feel free to keep tasting and adjust as you like.
Onion: Traditionally, guacamole uses red onions, but you can opt to using yellow or white onion if you do not have any.
Cooking is a chance to be creative! Have fun with it and feel free to make your own variation.
- Spicy - add a little bit of your favorite hot sauce into the guacamole.

Equipment can have a big impact on how a recipe turns out. Stone bakeware takes longer to heat up than metal pans, and also retain heat for longer, which could make the recipe more watery, or burnt on the outsides.
