Quick & Easy Guacamole Recipe

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.

Guacamole Recipe


  • 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)


  1. Cut open avocados and mash them together in a bowl. Discard skin and inner seed.
  2. Finley dice red onions and mix into the avocado mixture.
  3. Juice the limes and add seasonings to your liking.
  4. For a spicier flavor, add more cayenne pepper.
  5. Serve with chips. I like the Siete Grain-Free Chips. You can find a pack of 6 on Amazon, HERE.
