Quick & Easy Guacamole

Everyone should know how to make the perfect Guacamole! It's an easy keto-friendly salad that goes great as a side with barbecue meat. Avocados are high in heart-healthy monounsaturated fatty acids and potassium which is an essential electrolyte that will help you beat keto-flu. This recipe is one of the 240 amazing low-carb recipes in my App and it will be one of the main ingredients in my next recipe :-)

Ingredients (makes 4 servings):

  • 2 large ripe avocados (400 g/ 14.1 oz)
  • 1 ⅓ cup cherry tomatoes or regular tomatoes (200 g/ 7.1 oz)
  • 1 small white onion (60 g/ 2.1 oz)
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2-4 tablespoons fresh lime juice (~ 1 lime)
  • 1 small red chili pepper
  • 2-4 tablespoons freshly chopped cilantro
  • ½ teaspoon salt or to taste (I like pink Himalayan salt)
  • freshly ground black pepper

Notes: When looking for ingredients, try to get them in their most natural form (organic, without unnecessary additives).


  1. Peel and finely chop the onion. Halve, deseed and finely chop the chili pepper and dice the tomatoes.
  2. Halve and peel the avocados. Remove the seed and place the flesh from one avocado into a bowl. Mash it well using a fork. Dice the other avocado into ½-inch pieces and keep aside.
  3. Squeeze in the lime juice, add finely chopped onion and crushed garlic, diced tomatoes and finely chopped chili pepper. Mix well using a fork.
  4. Add the remaining diced avocado, fresh cilantro, salt and pepper and mix well (do not mash). Enjoy on top of crispy bacon slices or with Grain-free Tortilla Chips!

when you weigh the avocado do you include the pit and skin? Or whole thing?


Hi Jackie, all weights are per edible parts (no skin and pit) unless stated otherwise.


What is the calorie total for the batch and you state "per serving" but how many servings per batch? Thanks, Judy


Hi Judy, recipe makes 4 servings (see "Ingredients") - if you need calories / carbs etc. per the whole batch, it will be times 4 (e.g. 724 kcal).


Love love love guacamole! I make my own version with parsley instead of cilantro. I know, I just don't like cilantro..... I always mash mine completely but this looks like a better alternative. I like the sound of the chunky texture Smile


I think people either love or hate cilantro. Haven't tried parsley but may give it a go next time Smile


Funny, my mom doesn't like it either.  I thought maybe she was just weird, but I guess she is not alone!  Smile


I find for me that Cilantro tastes bitter and weed like.  I just can't stand it.  Sad thing is that is about the only herb I grew successfully this summer.
