{Nightshade-Free Guacamole}

Previously, we posted a great homemade guacamole recipe we found online which was a delicious way for us to start incorporating avocados into our diet.

Since then, we’ve made guacamole several more times and revamped it to a place we truly believe is the best guacamole ever. It has also become nightshade free for those of you avoiding nightshades :)

More lime-infused, less oniony, and nightshade-free, we think you’ll want to make this a regular staple in your home. Give it a try and let us know what you think!

(This guac also makes a fabulous garnish to the Citrus Carnitas we posted last week. Try them together!)



  • 3 Haas avocados, halved, seeded & peeled
  • 2 Limes, juiced
  • 1/2 teaspoon Sea Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Cumin
  • 1 clove Garlic, minced
  • 1/4 medium Yellow Onion, finely diced
  • 4 tablespoons Chopped Fresh Cilantro


  • Scoop the Avocado flesh into a mixing bowl.
  • Roll the 2 limes on a hard countertop until they feel soft, to ensure maximum juice extraction.
  • Juice the limes over the Avocado. Toss to coat.


  • Sprinkle in the Sea Salt, Ground Cumin, and minced Garlic.
  • Using an avocado tool or potato masher, mash all ingredients together to your desired smoothness.
  • Gently mix in the diced Onion and chopped fresh Cilantro.
  • Enjoy immediately, or let sit for an hour for flavors to marry even further together. Serve at room temperature.
  • Store in an airtight container and refrigerate leftovers.



Happy eating! Joey
