      Let’s take a look at the main ingredients: 

      • Avocados
      • Onion
      • Tomatoes
      • Jalapeños
      • Garlic

      Avocados, onion, tomatoes, jalapeños, and garlic are natural, nutritious ingredients. They add fiber and nutrients to a variety of recipes. 

      Most guacamole dips are served with tortilla chips made with flour (starchy carbs), which digests very similarly to sugar. 

      In a single serving of chips, you’re already up to 46g of sugar. Next, you’re looking at heartburn with an energy crash. (And you’ll be scouring the pantry for your next sugar snack within the hour.)

      Omit the chips. Or, swap them out with a low-carb alternative, and this recipe becomes nourishment. The ingredients provide vitamins, minerals, healthy fats, and quality, whole-food energy.

      Guacamole Tips

      Best Guacamole Recipe for a Crowd! Potluck Dip Ideas.

      1. Use fresh avocados

      For the best taste and texture, look for ripe avocados! They should be dark green and strike a nice balance between soft and firm. They should give just slightly when squeezed but not be mushy at all. Check out your local farmer’s market for the best tasting avocados. 

      2. Store leftovers

      Transfer leftovers to an airtight container, and top the guacamole with lemon juice or lime juice. Seal the container, pressing the guacamole to the top if possible, to prevent oxidation. Store the guacamole in the fridge for 2-3 days. 

      3. Use it as a condiment

      Not only does this guacamole recipe work well as a dip, but it also makes for a great spread or condiment! Use it to add flavor and nutrients to wraps, sandwiches, chicken breasts, and all your favorite meals. 

      4. Have leftover avocados? 

      Slice them up to add to salads and sandwiches. Or, put them to use with recipes like avocado pesto pasta and cucumber sushi!

        Prep Time:10 minutes


        • 3 ripe avocados
        • 1 small onion finely diced
        • 1 Roma tomatoes diced and seeds removed
        • 1-2 jalapeño peppers finely diced (adjust to taste)
        • 1 cloves of garlic minced
        • 1 lime juiced
        • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro chopped
        • Salt and pepper to taste


        • Prepare the avocados: Cut the avocados in half, remove the pits, and scoop the flesh into a mixing bowl.
        • Mash the avocados: Using a fork or potato masher, mash the avocados to your desired consistency. Some prefer a chunkier guacamole, while others prefer it smoother.
        • Add the remaining ingredients: Add the diced onion, diced tomatoes, diced jalapeño peppers, minced garlic, and chopped cilantro to the bowl with the mashed avocados.
        • Season with lime juice, salt, and pepper: Squeeze the juice of one lime over the mixture. Add salt and pepper to taste. Gently fold the ingredients together until well combined.
        • Adjust seasoning and lime juice: Taste the guacamole and adjust the seasoning and lime juice as needed. If you prefer a tangier guacamole, you can add the juice of an additional lime.
        • Chill and serve: Cover the guacamole with plastic wrap, ensuring the wrap is in direct contact with the surface of the guacamole to prevent browning. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld. Serve chilled with your choice of low-carb dippers such as carrots, cucumber slices, bell pepper strips, chips, seeded crackers, or celery sticks.
