Being on a whole-food, plant-based diet, I tend to eat what post people consider an appetizer for lunch or dinner. I eat things like cashew queso, black bean salsa, and of course, guacamole.
Guacamole is a great lunch or dinner because avocados are a super food, and I’m able to consume a lot of really good fat when I eat guacamole for a meal.
I also love serving this recipe when we’ve got company over because it’s quick and easy to throw together.
- 3 Large Avocados (make sure they’re not too hard)
- 2 key limes or 1 large lime
- 1 medium red onion, chopped
- 1/2 teaspoon salt (I like to use Himalayan salt – add more to taste, if desired)
- 1/2 teaspoon cumin
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (I like to use a little more, depending on how large the avocados are. Add more until it’s got the right amount of heat for your tastebuds)
- Cut open avocados and mash them together in a bowl. Discard skin and inner seed.
- Finley dice red onions and mix into the avocado mixture.
- Juice the limes and add seasonings to your liking.
- For a spicier flavor, add more cayenne pepper.
- Serve with chips. I like the Siete Grain-Free Chips. You can find a pack of 6 on Amazon, HERE.
- nut-free, dairy-free
- vegan, whole-foods, plant-based
- LOTS of “good” fat
