About This Gluten-Free Guacamole Recipe
Yes, guacamole is naturally gluten-free. But I'm in the habit of labeling everything on my website as gluten-free: because that's what it's all about!
For some strange reason that I'm still trying to understand, I never bothered making my own guacamole until just recently. And it's a complete game-changer. In less than ten minutes, you can have your own scrumptious guacamole. It's so easy! This recipe is perfect for two people, but you can double it or triple it for as many servings as you like.
Ingredients For Homemade Gluten-Free Guacamole
-Lime or lime juice (the juice from fresh limes taste best, but bottled lime juice works fine)
-Tortilla chips, for optimal dipping.
How To Make Gluten-Free Guacamole
Guacamole is so simple and it takes minutes to prepare! You smash the avacados into a bowl and add your chopped red onion, fresh cilantro, lime juice, cumin, and sea salt. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed. Then start dipping your chips in and enjoy!
Customize Guacamole For You
This recipe doesn't add tomatoes, because I'm not a big fan of them (Update: I'm slowly learning to like them as of 2022. It's a journey.. You can try adding diced tomatoes, minced garlic, jalapenos, or anything else that you like! This guacamole is a perfect base to build upon.
How To Serve Guacamole
I love Siete Foods lime tortilla chips which are gluten-free and grain-free. Or, if you can digest corn without issue, Late July tortilla chips and Mi Nina Tortilla are also gluten-free! And this guacamole goes perfectly with a big plate of loaded nachos, don't you think?
How To Store Gluten-Free Guacamole
Pro tip: Leave the avocado pit in the guacamole to prevent it from browning. Big thanks to our friends & blog taste testers Melissa & Dan for this tip! Guacamole is best served fresh, so if you are going to try and keep it overnight, place the pit in there or squeeze some lime juice on top. You can also try placing a piece of plastic wrap over it tightly against the guacamole. Again, it browns quickly, so this isn't a snack I recommend making in advance. It only takes 5-10 minutes, anyway!

- 2 ripe avocadoes, smashed with a fork
- 3-4 Tablespoons of finely chopped red onion
- 1 lime, juiced (or more!)
- 1-2 tablespoons freshly chopped cilantro
- ¼ teaspoon cumin
- salt, to taste (I prefer freshly cracked sea salt)
- Optional add-ins: chopped tomatoes, minced garlic, chopped jalapeños
Mash the avocadoes with a fork until smooth. Add in the remaining ingredients and stir to combine. Taste for seasoning and adjust as needed. Serve with tortilla chips, veggies, or quesadillas!
To prevent browning, keep one of the avocado pits in the guacamole when serving (just don't eat it). You can also keep guacamole in the fridge to enjoy within 1-2 days, just make sure you cover it completely and tightly with beeswrap or plastic wrap.
