Guacamole is one of those condiments that just goes great with everything. Want to make any food better? Guac it. It’s creamy, salt, onion-and-garlicy, with a hint of tanginess from the lime. Condiment perfection.

Keto Guacamole Recipe

There are a lot of variations among guacamole recipes. I prefer to keep it simple. Aside from the obvious ingredient (avocados), there are only 3 other ingredients in this perfectly flavorful recipe:

  1. Lime Juice
  2. Onions
  3. Savory Salt

Try Shallots or Dried Minced Onions

For the onions, I prefer to use shallots or dried minced onions (toasted is my favorite). Red onions just don’t do it for me. I love the more mellow flavor of the shallots, but rarely have them on hand, so the toasted minced onions are my next favorite option.

The Savory Salt blend from Explorado Market adds the garlic and a hint more of onion. It’s really the perfect compliment to guac and I don’t make it without this key ingredient.

How do we use guac in our house?

  • Eat it by the spoonful
  • Dip for pork rinds or grain-free tortilla chips
  • Condiment with our morning eggs
  • Topping for tacos
  • Veggie dip
  • Tasty substitute for mayo
  • Homemade Chipotle bowls
  • Topping for grain-free toast
  • Mixed into devilled egg topping

The possibilities are endless!

And yes, there is no cilantro in this recipe. Did you know that a small percentage of people have a gene mutation that causes them to hate cilantro? Seriously, to them, it tastes like dirty dishwater. Well guess what friends? Not only do I have that, but I married a man with it as well, and we have passed it on to all 3 of our kids. So you will never find a recipe with cilantro here. Feel free to add it if you wish.

Yield: 4
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes



  1. Juice the lime.
  2. Chop up your shallot nice and tiny.
  3. Combine the shallot, Savory Salt, and lime juice. Mix up and let sit for a few minutes.
  4. Take one of your avocados and mash it up real good, hardly any chunks. Mix that into the lime juice mixture.
  5. With the second avocado, dice it up and gently mix it into the lime/avocado mixture so that you keep the chunkiness of it all.
  6. Serve immediately. Keep leftovers in the fridge in a tightly sealed container. To kee the guac from browning, press plastic wrap against the entire surface to prevent air from touching it and oxidizing the guac.
