    Instead of corn tortilla chips, I used pieces of crispy bacon to dip and scoop up guacamole. Delish!

    Nice easy classic recipe!

    Another good tortilla replacement for dipping: raw jicama, peeled and thinly sliced. This root vegetable resembles a cross between an apple and a potato in taste and texture. Crisp-crunchy and just slightly sweet.

    Fewer carbs if you swap white onions for shallots and tomatoes for red chillies (deseeded and finely chopped) - gives it a nice kick, too :D I have mine with cheddar 'crisps' - yummy!

    Ingredient list needs to be edited. Lists a lime, directions states a lemon.
  5. Bas
    And what about the garlic? Is it just for show?

    I was on auto pilot and just minced the garlic in, along with the onion.

    Another thing you can dip into the guacamole is pork rinds (chicharrones). I like the hot & spicy, 0 carbs. You can also crush up the rinds and use in ground beef as a filler or to coat chicken, after coating with the homemade mayonnaise, like breadcrumbs. Fry in butter or bake.

    We use fried pigskins to scoop up the guacamole.

    This guac is awesome. I wish I could eat some on tortillas, but the pork rinds sound like a real good option. Thanks Bob. ^ ^

    I'm happy to have another reason to eat pork rinds

    Just made this version, and am learning I may not be a fan of my organic olive oil (every day a new revelation) used the white onion and tomato but would try shallot/chili pepper.
    I used a small blender with 3 halve's of defrosted avo, mixed in oil, bottled lime juice and olive oil to fine pulp. This is when I discovered I could taste the olive oil and was a bit underwhelmed.
    So added the other half avo chopped 3 cherry tomatoes, more lime, lots of salt and pepper. Used dice slider on a mandolin to finely chop the onion. Then used a fine grater (a la the divine Ms Nigella Lawson) to grate the garlic. And then scoffed with pork scratchings (not zero carbs and very hard to find widely in UK, but a tolerable amount) and cream cheese. Now have lunch or dinner for the next few days too.

    Overall, one of the better recipes I've found for a keto guac on line.
