According to Wikipedia, “Guacamole is an avocado-based dip that began with the Aztecs in Mexico. In addition to its use in modern Mexican cuisine it has also become part of American cuisine as a dip, condiment and salad ingredient.” This simple guacamole recipe is perfect for beginner cooks wondering how to make guacamole, and also perfect for children learning their way around the kitchen.
If you like spicy food, add jalapenos and finely diced onions to the recipe above. To further turn up the heat, increase the amount of the spices in this recipe. Of course if you are looking for an avocado dip that is mild and more kid-friendly, decrease the amount of spices in this guacamole recipe. That’s what I did when the boys were younger.
If you want to make your guacamole ahead of time, throw in a couple of the avocado pits and it will not go brown for 2-3 hours. Serve with Paleo Tortilla Chips.
I recently found out I was allergic to almonds. I have made your almond flour cupcakes for years. Is there another type of flour I can use to get similar results?
Louise, here’s a link to my nut-free cupcakes for you:
What type of Paleo chip or cracker can you eat with it? I’ve tried a few and sent care for the taste. Any recommendations?
Kelly, thanks for your comment. I recommend a Paleo Tortilla Chip in the last paragraph of this post :-)

Thank you very much for posting this recipe. I have only just started eating avocados and absolutely love them in sandwiches and on crackers, so I’m sure I’m going to like this guacamole recipe just as much, if not more so.
You can also put guac in a bowl, smooth the top and add a thin layer of water. Dump off the water when ready to eat and stir. The water keeps oxygen from turning it brown.
I make my guac with lime juice, cumin, chili powder and garlic salt – all to taste. Simple. I think everyone has their own take on this yummy dip/spread. It is so easy to modify to suit different tastes and preferences.
Mmmm, makes me want some now! Thanks for the great post!
