Easy Mexican Tangy Guacamole

MAKING HOMEMADE GUACAMOLE IS EASIER THAN YOU THINK

We have a Mexican friend who moved to Canada recently and she shared with us how she makes homemade guacamole.

I first fell in love with guacamole years ago while I was travelling through India and I enjoy it just as much today.

My recipe is not near as fancy as the Indian Avocado Raita but having a Mexican friend as an influence certainly helped.

Avocados have a high-fat content (14.1 g of fat in a half avocado which is mostly unsaturated with 2 grams saturated) but are very heart healthy.

As the Keto diet blows up the world avocadoes have become a staple in many kitchens across the globe.

Homemade vs. Store Bought Guacamole

Guacamole

You can’t pay me to buy guacamole at the grocery store because it is so overpriced and doesn’t taste like the real deal.

Guacamole is a relatively frugal Mexican dip to make with the most expensive part of the guacamole recipe is the avocados.

Buying 1 large avocado at the grocery store can cost you around $1.25 each or cheaper depending on where you buy them.

If you want organic avocados you should expect to pay close to $2.00 for one.

We picked up a pack of 6 avocados for $2.99 on the reduced rack last week so we’ve been making this guacamole recipe often.

It doesn’t seem to last long in our house since it’s so good.

What To Dip In Guacamole

BAKED PEPPERONI CHIPS double baked

We love to dip Keto pepperoni chips in guacamole or pork rinds that we buy from Buster Rhinos in Canada.

Often like to serve my guacamole with tortilla chips, fresh-cut vegetables or on my homemade whole wheat tortillas.

At the cost of only $4.10 to make fresh guacamole, it’s worth the money but let’s not forget about the taste.
