If you enjoy avocados as much as we do then you’ll love this guacamole recipe. All you need is a few simple ingredients, expert mashing skills, and you’re ready to indulge.
4 ripe avocados
1/2 a red onion
1 large garlic clove, minced (substitute garlic powder)
1 medium tomato, diced
1 teaspoon pink Himalayan sea salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 jalapeño, diced
3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime or lemon juice
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
Combine the ingredients you want into a mixing bowl, take a fork, and start mashing and mixing together. It’s okay to leave some avocado chunks as that adds a nice texture to the dish. What you’re left with is a healthy appetizer to take to your next dinner party or, if you scale down the recipe, a healthy snack for yourself!
We know guacamole tastes great with chips but remember that there are other crunchy options to choose from that are healthier. Our favorite is sliced cucumbers, but bell peppers, celery sticks, or carrots all work the same way chips do! If you are intent on eating this dip with chips then we recommend Siete brand Cassava chips. Cassava is a root vegetable that is ground into a flour and substituted for corn and other flours in this brand of chips. The only ingredients are cassava flour, avocado oil, coconut flour, ground chia seeds, and sea salt- healthiest chips we’ve come across so far!
