Easy-to-make, chunky guacamole! Paleo, Vegan, AIP-friendly.
GUACAMOLE! This girl will always pay for extra guac at chipotle because it’s the best part. And any Mexican flavored meal I eat is probably going to have a big dollop on top.
I’m a little picky about my guacamole, though… I has to be chunky and have the right balance of flavors: not too spicy, a little cilantro, just enough lime so that it’s not overpowering. The secret to this guac is the definitely the combination of lime and lemon juice. It help keeps the guac from browning and gives it a fresh flavor.
Did I mention this recipes is only 6 ingredients? YASSS! 💚💚💚 That means you won’t feel tempted to skip making the guac out of laziness. I speak only from experience! Too many veggies to chop or steps to follow is a big recipe turn-off when I just want a quick, lazy meal.
But this guacamole will become your new lazy go-to. You don’t even have to do much mixing or mashing because this guac is best when it’s left full of avocado chunks. You can make a meal of veggies and plantain chips dipped in guac (I’m not judging!) or use to to top your homemade tacos, burrito bowls, salads or… almost anything really!
