  5. Taste and season with extra salt if needed, or an extra squeeze of lemon juice. Serve immediately with chips or veggie sticks for dipping.

Recipe Notes


For a creamier guacamole, continue mixing until reaching your desired consistency. If you want a mashed guacamole, feel free to smash the avocado with a fork, until reaching desired texture.
