This recipe was inspired by one of my favorite Mexican joints in Hoboken, NJ called Charritos. They would make you fresh guacamole at your table! You were able to tell them how you liked it. I’m not a fan of parsley, so I purposely leave it out my guacamole. BUT if you like it, go for it. LOL
There are really no exact measurements for guacamole. It’s more of a matter of what you like. So adjust the ingredients for your taste buds.
- 1 -2 ripe avocados
- 1-2 TBSP fresh lime juice
- ½ diced onion (about ¼ cup)
- 2-3 cloves of minced garlic
- ½ TBSP minced jalapeno (optional)
- Salt & pepper for taste (about a ¼ tsp each)
- Parsley – I leave mine out
- Muddle all ingredients together.
- Taste test with a paleo tortilla chip.
- If too spicy, add more avocado. If not spicy enough, add more jalapeno.
- If you’re not going to eat this right away, store in a small glass container and lightly add in about 1-2 tsp of lime juice on top. This will keep it from turning brown.
- You can find Siete’s Grain Free Tortilla Chips at The Fresh Market, Vitacost.com or ThriveMarket.com. They are absolutely delicious!
- Don’t add in all of the jalapeno at once. Add in a little at a time until you have the heat level you like.
- If you have a small food processor you can use it to mince the onion and garlic. Depending on your food processor you may be able to mince the jalapeno in it too, but mine will not.
JUST EAT REAL FOOD – Stop focusing on calories & focus on what you’re eating and how it makes you feel. Your body is always giving you signals, but many times we ignore them. Pay attention if you develop nausea, gas, bloating, abdominal pain, diarrhea, constipation, headaches, joint pain, rashes, sinus problems, or cold sores. If you develop any of these things after eating, it’s a good indicator that your body is giving you a clue to stop consuming something in your food. Many times these symptoms come from consuming chemicals, artificial coloring, and preservatives. Other times these symptoms can occur from a food allergy or sensitivity. Pay attention. Creating a food diary is a really great way to help you figure out what your triggers are. Food elimination diets are a great way to figure out what your triggers are.
