I will be honest, my carnivore won't touch guacamole. It is way too green for him. But, many other carnivorous friends and family members of mine love it as much as I do. This is a great recipe for a group gathering or a family game night. Plus, this dip packs in tons of nutrients - vitamin E, vitamin K, fiber, potassium, folate, vitamin B6, vitamin C - just to name a few. And did I mention it is delicious? My hubby and I got married in a small town in Mexico
that we still return to again and again. I won't say it is solely because of the guacamole at a place called Hemingway's where they grind it fresh at your table, but...So when I need a fix, I make this version at home.
2 ripe avocados, peeled and pitted
1/4 of a medium red onion, diced
1 medium tomato, diced
a handful of fresh cilantro
1 tblsp. olive oil
the juice of one lime
kosher salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
Place all of the ingredients in a food processor (see my amazon store for the one I use and love). Blend thoroughly. I like mine a little chunky, but you can can keep blending until it is smooth. If you have left-overs be sure to cover them with a plastic film to prevent browning.
This guac is great all on its own. Serve it with tortilla chips or fresh veggies for dipping. You can also use it as a condiment to any mexican dish you serve, whether it be burritos or quesadillas. It is even a great vegetarian filling for tacos when you are serving your carnivore beef filled ones.
