Simply add this to avocados for instant guacamole. The versatile seasoning mix is great to have on hand for more than just guac, though. Use it to flavor eggs, meat, vegetables, or even the rim of a glass for margaritas.



  1. Mix together the cilantro, cayenne, pepper flakes, cumin, and 1 tablespoon salt in a small bowl until completely combined (see Cook’s Note). Add this mixture to a large bowl along with the lime zest and lime juice (and 6 avocados) just before making the guacamole.

Cook’s Note

The seasoning mix, minus the lime zest and juice, will keep, tightly covered at room temperature, for up to 1 month. The recipe can also be scaled up. Add the lime zest and juice right before using.
