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.
-Lime or lime juice (the juice from fresh limes taste best, but bottled lime juice works fine)
-Tortilla chips, for optimal dipping.
This recipe doesn't add tomatoes, because I'm not a big fan of them. You can try adding diced tomatoes, minced garlic, jalapenos, or anything else that you like! This guacamole is a perfect base to build upon.
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?
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!

- 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.
