I absolutely hate cooking. But this guacamole recipe is so easy to make and only requires a few basic ingredients. Keeping guac in your fridge is a great way to make sure you hit your Keto macros. You'll be like oh shit, MyFitnessPal says I still need 20g of fat today? Better hammer down some spicy guacamole.
I put this guac on fish, dip my veggies in it, and sometimes just throw it on my plate and eat it like potato salad (dear god, I miss eating potato salad). And in case you didn't know, Avocados are a Keto power-food. You'd have to eat 7 jumbo eggs to match the fat in 2 avocados. Good luck with that…
- 2 – Haas Avocados

(Cal:32, Fat: 0g, Prot:0g, NetCarb:6g)
- 1 Tbsp – 100% Lime Juice
- 1 – Pinch of salt
- 2 Tbsp – Red Pepper Flakes (optional but deliciously recommended)
Update: Reddit users LaFridge and ghost_victim say adding Garlic is a must. Do you like Garlic in your guacamole? Let us know in the comments.
Why Should I make Keto Guacamole?
|The high fat ratio keeps you full!|
My ex-girlfriend used to make guacamole all the time. We'd break out the guac and hammer a whole bag of a chips in one sitting (dear god, I miss eating chips). Before I started Keto, I told her "eating all this fat isn't healthy!" Of course, now I realize I was just an ignorant asshole for saying that (what else is new?). Ketoers know how important low-carb/high-fat foods like Avocados can be in curbing hunger.
Note: I love anything with a little spicy kick. So adding Red Pepper Flakes or Cayenne Pepper powder really enhances the taste for me. If you hate spicy food, you can just omit the pepper flakes and continue leading a boring life.
Making Spicy Keto Guacamole, Step-By-Step
|All the ingredients. Yes, it's that easy.|
- Peel and Pit the Avocados. No idea how to peel a Avocado? Neither did I the first time. Here's a video from YouTube.
- Mash the Avocados. Throw the freshly peeled Avocados into a bowl and mash the crap out of them with a fork (or other random utensil). Some people like big chunks of Avocado. I prefer my guac to be a little smoother so I can spread it on pretty much everything.
- Chop/Mince the Onion. Mince the onion until you have a million small pieces. The ingredients say 1/2 cup of chopped onions. But feel free to add more or less depending on your tastes.
- Add & Mix Your Ingredients. Toss the onions, salt, and lime juice into the guacamole and mix them together.
- You're done! Eat it immediately or toss it in the fridge for 30 minutes if you want to cool it down.
KetoFlu Bonus: Add some chopped-up Turkey Bacon in too if you want. Bacon makes everything better.
