  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 Roma tomatoes seeded and diced
  • ½ onion chopped (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon chopped and seeded jalapeño pepper
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic

  • Fold in tomatoes, onions, cilantro, jalapeño and garlic.

Make Ahead: To store guacamole, place it in a bowl and pour a thin layer of lime juice on top of the guacamole. Cover with plastic wrap and push the plastic down to touch the guacamole. This will prevent air pockets and will keep the guacamole from browning. Store in the refrigerator for 3–4 days.
