This paleo guacamole recipe is so easy it takes just minutes to quickly put this together. This makes it a great side dish to any meal or even just by itself as a dip. There are many variations on this recipe some requiring just a few ingredients and others that require a lot. In this recipe I make use of red onion, garlic, lime, tomato and also cilantro.
Getting a decent avocado at the supermarket can actually be quite hard. You will often find some that are not ripe enough thus impossible to mash and others that have actually gone brown on the inside. The best way to check is to simply press the avocado slightly and if it dents slightly then it is ready to be used. If it doesn’t dent, then it is too hard and best to either not buy or buy if you have a few days to allow it to ripen.
Normally guacamole is paleo friendly but you may find a lot of the pre-prepared variations at the supermarket aren’t. You will find that a lot of them will add cream cheese so they don’t need to add as much avocado. Some brands go as low as 10% avocado in a dip name guacamole, it’s hard to believe how they can get away with it. To avoid this issue it’s usually just best to make it at home where you know exactly what has gone into it.

This recipe will probably only last 1 day even if you do keep it in the fridge. The lime should help keep it for awhile but you will probably find that the avocado will brown quite fast.
