Guacamole (with a kick!) AIP/ Paleo


Is there a more perfect dip, topping, or sauce than guacamole? In my humble opinion, I don’t think so. First of all, it’s so versatile. You can make guacamole as fancy or as simple as you like. It’s kind of like a blank canvas. Second of all, it’s packed with healthy fats. Let’s face it, guacamole is basically a health food disguised as indulgence. 

Avocados are considered a “super food” for good reason. They are packed with heart-healthy oleic-acid, otherwise known as omega-9, that has strong anti-inflammatory properties and promotes satiety. They are a rich source of fiber, containing about 10 grams per whole avocado, AND they contain a lot of crucial vitamins and minerals including a variety of B vitamins, vitamin C, E, & K, potassium, magnesium, and folate.

In other words, avocados are awesome and deserve their esteemed place in a whole-foods based diet. 

This is my go-to guacamole recipe for taco nights. The red onion and garlic give it a nice kick and little bit of heat, while the lime juice keeps the guac cool and bright.

1 garlic clove, peeled

4 avocados, halved with pits removed

Combine all ingredients into a food processor and blend until smooth. Serve it up as an appetizer with plantain chips or tostones, or serve it on top of tacos.
