  • 1 large red pepper, roasted
  • 1/2 cup red onion, minced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 serrano pepper, minced
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, minced
  • 1 lime (juice only)
  • 2 large avocados, mashed
  • Salt
  • Chips, for serving


  • 1
    Preheat oven to 450°F. Roast red pepper on a baking sheet for 15-20 minutes, turning once until skin is very blistered and blackened. Remove pepper from oven and place in a bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and let steam for 5 minutes.
  • 2
    Meanwhile, add minced onion, garlic, serrano pepper, cilantro and lime juice in a medium bowl. Season with a pinch of salt.
  • 3
    Cut avocados in half and remove seeds. Scoop soft flesh into bowl and mash together with other ingredients using a potato masher or large fork.
  • 4
    After pepper has steamed, peel off skin and seed and dice the roasted pepper. Stir pepper into the guacamole.
  • 5
    Season guacamole to your liking, adding salt or more lime juice as necessary. Serve with tortilla chips.

Expert Tips

  • tip 1
    Keep your fingers intact with our handy guide on how to cut avocados like a pro.
  • tip 2
    How do you know if an avocado is ripe? If you press your finger into the avocado, it should have a slight give. Also, if the stem of the avocado can be removed easily, that means your avocado is good to go!
  • tip 3
    You can buy store-bought roasted peppers that are decent, but they're also expensive, especially considering how easy roasting a pepper is. We recommend doing it yourself in the oven—the few extra steps will be worth it.

More About This Recipe

  • This guacamole starts out life the regular way, but adding roasted red peppers takes it to a new level. It’s a rare day that we advocate for going beyond your basic guacamole recipe. At the end of the day, good guacamole is as easy as ripe avocados, salt, lime and maybe some cilantro and peppers. Anything else and you risk upsetting that perfect balance of flavor. That being said, this roasted red pepper guacamole is worth the extra ingredients. The roasted pepper adds a subtle, extra savory dimension to the guacamole, but it doesn’t get in the way of the good flavors that people love.
