This paleo guacamole recipe is so easy it takes just minutes to put this together quickly. This guacamole makes it a great side dish to any meal or even by itself as a dip.
There are many variations on this recipe some requiring just a few ingredients and others that require a lot. In this recipe, I make use of red onion, garlic, lime, tomato and also cilantro.
Getting a decent avocado at the supermarket can be quite hard. You will often find some that are not ripe enough thus impossible to mash and others that have gone brown on the inside.
The best way to check if an avocado is good is to press the avocado slightly, and if it dents somewhat, then it is ready to be used. If it doesn’t dent, then it is too hard and best to either not buy or buy if you have a few days to allow it to ripen.
Normally guacamole is paleo friendly, but you may find a lot of the pre-prepared variations at the supermarket aren’t. You will find that a lot of them will add cream cheese, so they don’t need to add as much avocado.
Some brands go as low as 10% avocado in a dip named guacamole, and it’s hard to believe how they can get away with it. To avoid buying guacamole with a low amount of avocado it’s usually just best to make it at home where you know exactly what has gone into it.
