Living in New Mexico most of my life has given me a great appreciation for guacamole done right.  They’re a staple in Mexican Food restaurants and adds a great healthy fat to your day.  Fresh and creamy, it’s a great accompaniment to dinner or as a snack.  I can eat it with a spoon, I love it that much, or eat with pork rinds (make sure the ingredients on your pork rinds are just pork skin and salt).  It’s also great with plantain crackers, plantain chips, or even on steak!



Prep Time: 15 mins
Cook Time: none
Yields: 2 cups


  • 2 ripe avocadoes
  • 2 tsps. fresh lime juice (this is about the amount of juice from one key lime) More to taste
  • 1/4 cup sweet onion, diced fine
  • 1 clove garlic, minced (more if you really like raw garlic), you can also use 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp fresh chopped cilantro
  • 1 tsp dried oregano (if you have fresh use it!)
  • 1/2 tsp. ground mace
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cumin (optional, don't use if following AIP)
  • 1/2 tsp. ground red chile powder (optional, don't use if following AIP)


  1. Using a fork, smash avocadoes until they are a consistency you prefer. I like it a bit more on the chunky side, others like it more creamy. It's up to you!
  2. Stir in lime juice well. This will help delay the browning process, as well as add a bit of acidity to the dish.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix. The more you mix it the less chunky it will be, so if you prefer a chunkier guacamole, only mix a little.
  4. Taste. Adjust the salt and lime to your preference.

Serve with paleo chips of your preference, or just get out the spoon! Can also be paired with the Fish Tacos or Lime Shrimp.
