Making homemade guacamole without cilantro is easier than you may think. Enjoy a delicious bowl of green dip for your chips, and do it with a few fresh ingredients.
If you're like my husband, then you despise the taste of cilantro. Many people do. In fact, it's actually a common thing. That's okay because cilantro isn't always needed, and in this case, the guac is better for it.
My husband, youngest child, and I all love this simple guacamole recipe without cilantro. When I make the dip this way, no storebought or restaurant-style can stand up to the taste.
From the creamy earthy avocado to the fresh and crisp onions and juicy tomatoes, every bite is a symphony of flavors and textures.
I make guacamole recipes without cilantro often (almost a few times a month) and have made it this way for YEARS. Just don't forget the Healthy Air Fryer Tortilla Chips!
🍯 Why This Recipe Works
- Simple ingredients. Guacamole is all about simple ingredients coming together to create something flavorful and delicious. This recipe uses minimal foods for maximum flavor.
- It's customizable. This dip can easily be customized to suit your tastes. Want it chunky? Smooth? More tomatoes? Less? Etc. There's so much room for possible adjustments.
- It tastes great. I mean, I wouldn't be sharing it here if it didn't. But this guacamole recipe is so gosh darn tasty that it goes well with EVERYTHING. My youngest son thinks it tastes best with his fingers, but I'd recommend at least using a spoon if you're over the age of 5.
Avocados- You'll want some ripe avocados for this recipe. Too ripe and they'll be brown, and not ripe enough means hard to mash and firm.
Roma tomato- You'll need a nice and juicy tomato for added freshness, color, and moisture.
Lime juice- Adding in lime juice is essential in helping to prevent browning. It also adds a nice freshness to the dip.
Salt- This is a natural flavor enhancer so if you feel the dip is a little bland, add a little more salt to kick it up a notch.

🍴 Recipe Tips
I like to mix together all of my no cilantro guacamole ingredients in a small mixing bowl or large cereal bowl depending on what I am serving it in. I usually mix in the same bowl I'm eating out of unless I'm trying to impress guests.
How to soften avocados
Avocados mash easily with the back of a fork and if they don't then they may not be ripe enough. You can microwave them for about 10-15 seconds to soften them up.
How to pit an avocado
Removing an avocado pit is easy and far less dangerous when you use a ripe avocado. After slicing the avocado in half just take the half of the avocado with the pit and place the peel in the middle of your palm so that the pit is outward. Hold it firmly and start squeezing the half. The pit will pop right out. No knife stabbing issues to worry about when done this way.
Guacamole could last up to a few days in the fridge if you keep it properly stored. Keep it well contained in an airtight container or in a covered bowl tightly wrapped with plastic wrap.
Having the plastic wrap pushed down so that it's touching the dip can helps to prevent some browning. The best storage is using plastic wrap on top of the guac AND keeping it in an airtight container.
💭 Recipe FAQs
You can leave it out (like this recipe directs) or substitute it for parsley. That would of course leave a different flavor altogether, and some people even report that parsley tastes like soap. I don't know about you, but that doesn't sound delicious.
I wouldn't recommend freezing this guacamole recipe. With the watery tomatoes and onions, the results won't be pleasant by the time that the guac thaws. For best results, eat fresh!
Oh, you bet it is! With a combination of healthy fats, vegetables, and minerals in every bite, you can bet it's one of the best snack options out there. The unhealthy part comes in with the chips. To keep this dish healthy from the beginning till the end, use healthier chip alternatives such as baked instead of fried.
