Best Ever Guacamole
Key words: Family friendly, Paleo, Whole30, Simple
If you have ever done a Whole30, you know how important it is to get healthy fat on your plate. However, this can be hard and it is really easy to get bored of the same fats. One of the ways I like to mix up my avocado is with guac. It goes with any protein and any vegetable. You can dip it, smear it, scoop it and eat it in so many different ways.
My favorite way to eat it (on the Whole30) is with fajita chicken and veggies over a bed of lettuce. However, I always use it for veggie dip, mix it with hard-boiled eggs for a spicy avocado egg salad and so many more ways. Of the Whole30 I love eating it the same way but also love dipping some Siete Chips in it too!
Why is fat so important during the Whole30? Well, it is what fuels you and keeps you full. Avocados are full of fat-soluble vitamins (vitamins that need fat to be absorbed) such as Vitamin A, D, E, K. They are full of fiber, potassium, magnesium, poly and monounsaturated fats and so many more nutrients!
Tips for my guacamole:
I like a little extra spice- if you like less spicy just use half of a jalapeno
I recommend when you are making guac for a crowd to estimate about one avocado per person
Serrano peppers are always a good substitute for jalapenos
2 ripe avocados
2 cloves of garlic- minced
2 Tbsp diced red onions
2 Tbsp chopped cilantro- about one small handful
1 lime- juiced
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mash until desired texture. I like mine fairly chunky, but that is personal preference.
