Everyone has their own version of guacamole, but I think the ingredients in my Cilantro-Lovers Guacamole are just perfect, and this delicious guacamole is low-carb, Keto, low-glycemic, gluten-free, meatless, vegan, and South Beach Diet friendly. Of course I love cilantro, but see my suggestion below if you’re not a fan! Use the Diet-Type Index to find more recipes like this one.
I’ve recently shared 10 Low-Carb Mexican Food Favorites and reminded you about 25+ Low-Carb Mexican Food Dinners for Cindo de Mayo, so I hope you’ve been planning your Cinco de Mayo menu. It won’t be long before it’s time to go into a Mexican food frenzy! And Guacamole is something that should be included in every Mexican food dinner, don’t you agree? There’s really no such a thing as bad Guacamole, but this Cilantro-Lovers Perfect Guacamole with Red Onion, Lime, and Chiles is absolutely my favorite version of guacamole. (And if you wrinkled up your nose at the mention of cilantro, you can use thinly-sliced green onion instead and it will still be great.)
I remember the first time I tasted guacamole, on the menu as “Guacamole Salad” at a now-long-gone restaurant named Tampico’s in downtown Salt Lake City. It was creamy, slightly spicy, and had just a touch of lime, and I thought it was one of the most heavenly things I’d ever tasted. For years I made “Easy Guacamole” for parties with just avocado, lime, and a bit of chili powder, and it was always a hit. Then around ten years ago I started adding some very finely chopped cilantro and red onion to my guacamole recipe.
Now I’ve made Guacamole for years using this recipe so I decided it was time to update it the recipe with new photos and recommend it for your Cinco de Mayo menu. But even though I still make my Guacamole with exactly the ingredients in this Cilantro-Lovers Perfect Guacamole recipe, truthfully I’d probably eat guacamole just about any way you wanted to make it. I’m guessing there are other people with specific guacamole preferences, so if you want to weigh in on it, please leave a comment telling us just what you think the essential ingredients are for perfect guacamole.
