This is the easiest and tastiest best guacamole! Once you make this recipe at home you will never buy store bought again! This recipe was originally going to go into my cookbook,Naturally Keto, but I couldn't make the deadline for it so I had to forgo this great recipe. No problem though as it's a winner the whole family loves and now you can enjoy it as much as we do! The flavor and spices in this guacamole will keep you coming back for more. Use this as a topping when making tacos with my Keto Tortillas, or use on top of my Mexican Lasagna. Or maybe you just need this as a dip for an appetizer, try my Keto Crackers with it.
How to Pick Avocado
Looking for the best avocados is probably the hardest part of this recipe. There are so many to choose and knowing which ones to buy can be challenging. If you're not ready to make the guacamole the same day as you are purchasing the avocados then no need to worry if they are as ripe as they could be. As long you grab some semi-ripe avocados then let them ripen a day or two more on the counter, you are good to go! When you're shopping for avocados and won't be making guacamole for a few days it's better to get some that are not quite ripe yet. They will be a more bright green color as opposed to a darker color. If they are firm to the touch with just a gentle squeeze, those are the ones I often pick. Once ripe, they can be stored in the fridge for about a week, this will slow down the ripening process, until you are ready to make the guacamole.
Tools to Make Guacamole
Mortar and Pestle set- Although I did not have one at the time of making this recipe, my youngest son gave me one for Christmas and it is wonderful! Super easy to mash ingredients for a deliciously smooth guacamole! This 8 inch one is the best size for making this recipe.
Avocado Slicer- This tool works as a splitter, pitter and slicer making it less messy and efficient.
