This is the best chunky guacamole recipe and a must-have on Taco Tuesday…or any day for that matter!  Full of flavor and fresh citrus, it comes together in minutes.


  • 4 small Haas avocados (about 2 cups when mashed)
  • ½ cup finely diced red onion
  • scant ½ cup finely diced jalapeño pepper (seeds and white part removed)
  • ½ cup finely chopped cilantro leaves
  • ¼ cup fresh lime juice
  • 2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp fresh ground black pepper, + more to taste
  • ½ tsp salt, + more to taste
  • ½ tsp garlic powder


  1. Cut the avocados in half lengthwise.  Remove the pits and discard.  Scoop out the avocado flesh and add to a small mixing bowl.
  2. Add the red onion, jalapeño pepper, cilantro, lime juice, lemon juice, pepper, salt, and garlic powder.
  3. Using the back of a fork, mash the avocado and mix the ingredients until desired consistency.  I don’t like to over-mash.  Taste and adjust the flavor by adding more salt, pepper, lime, etc. as you see fit.
  4. If you have the time, allow the guacamole to rest in the refrigerator for 1 hour before serving to allow the flavors to blend.


Store guacamole in an airtight container, or carefully press a piece of saran wrap on top to cover the surface.
