Guacamole Seasoning

I am a minimalist when it comes to my guacamole. All I do is mash up two avocados, add some diced Roma tomatoes, then a little salt and a clove or two of minced garlic. And commence inhalation. So when I saw this recipe for a guacamole seasoning, I was a bit hesitant at first because I love my simple guacamole.

But now that I’ve tried it, I would love to make a big batch of this seasoning and store it for later use. Might be a good gift too (since we are becoming ever closer to that gift-giving time of year). I also tried this guacamole with the Trader Joe’s black bean quinoa chips which were fabulous themselves. First time trying those too, and in combination with the guacamole I just might’ve eaten the entire bowl by myself O:-).

One year ago: Breakfast Quesadillas


Makes about 1-1/2 tsp seasoning for 2 avocados-worth of guacamole


1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/4 tsp dried minced onion or onion powder

Pinch of cumin, to taste

1/4 tsp dried cilantro

1/8 tsp cayenne pepper

1/4 tsp salt


  1. Combine all ingredients. Store in an air-tight container if not using immediately.
  2. To make guacamole, mash two avocados with the seasoning, then stir in 1 chopped Roma tomato. Add 1/4 tsp lime juice to prevent browning. Serve.
