Low Carb Guacamole. I have long wanted to make this post and from time to time it seemed kind of dumb with only 4 measly ingredients. There are probably hundreds of recipes for guacamole on the internet and what would make mine anything but special. Actually, I think there are two thing that set mine apart. That it tastes the way should. I have always though of guacamole as a side salad/condiment and not necessarily a dip. Do I use it as such? Yes I do, and I also use it to go with other things like Cheese Tortilla Fajitas, Mexican Cheese Taco Salad, or Fish Tostadas On Cheese Crisps. The second thing that sets mine apart is the creaminess of the avocado itself. Yeah, it has the traditional green onions and diced tomatoes but the avocado is as smooth as a baby’s butt which make the mouth feel the consistency of soft butter. How do I get the avocado to that consistency? With an immersion blender plain and simple. No smashing with a fork or potato masher which will not give you much of anything but chunky and no processor to clean.
I don’t use any extraneous ingredients in my guacamole; just avocado, green onions, tomatoes, & salt. It isn’t suppose to blast you with heat or flavors that don’t go together, it is a palate cleanser and cooling agent after eating spicier foods. How often do I make guacamole? More than I like to think about which is probably once very 1-2 weeks. And the good news? It’s healthy.

- Let's get real here. It would probably be impossible for one person to eat all this but shared by two people, watching a game-oh-yeah. Unless you have small kids, 4 servings is out of the question.
- My bowl was too big but my two smaller metal bowl were in the fridge with something or another in them.
