  • 3 avocados peeled and pits removed
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. white onion finely chopped
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano Mexican or Greek
  • 1 fresh lime
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt


  • Mash avocados with a fork in a non-metallic bowl until an almost smooth consistency. 
  • Stir in oregano, white onion and lime juice. 
  • Add sea salt to taste. 


  • Serve immediately or store briefly in the refrigerator covered in plastic wrap. 
  • If you keep the avocado pits in the guacamole while storing it, it seems to help prevent the guacamole from turning black as quickly.
