A good guacamole is an essential recipe to have in your arsenal. I mean even if you don’t like to cook you can still wow your friends with some good snacks when they come and visit and a good guacamole for a dip is part and parcel of some good snacks.

Don’t worry, I’ll use the word ‘good’ a few more times, I know I didn’t use it nearly enough there.

And really it’s so easy, it’s actually fool proof.

The only thing that could ever go wrong with making this guacamole, would be buying bad avocados to start with.

Provided you get good avocados, you’re golden. And you know they’re good when they’re firm but yield slightly to the touch.

How to Make Vegan Guacamole Dip

Simply smash up some deliciously ripe avocados and then add some fresh lime juice, chopped red onion, cherry tomatoes, fresh cilantro, sea salt and black pepper and there you have it!

In 10 minutes, you can take a bag of chips and turn it into a gourmet treat because of what you have now made available as a dip!

What to serve with Guacamole

We served it with tortilla chips, but any chips work great with guac. Or flat breads. Or raw veggies, anything that needs a dip.

If you’re one of those people in the world who thinks cilantro tastes like soap (it’s a real thing), then switch out the cilantro for parsley or another fresh herb that you enjoy.

Can Guacamole Be Made Ahead of Time?

The fresh lime juice does keep this guacamole from going brown, so it can be made ahead of time. However, since it’s so quick to make, it is most ideal if you just have your separate ingredients ready but then open and mash the avocados and get it all ready right before you want to serve it. This definitely tastes best when ultra fresh.

How long does Guacamole Last?

It can last 2-3 days in the fridge, and the lime juice will keep it from browning, but it is still going to taste best when freshest.

Can Guacamole be Frozen?

Because of the additions to this guac, like cherry tomatoes and cilantro and chopped red onion, it’s not ideal for the freezer at all.
