I recently found myself with a lot of ripe avocados and making a guacamole was the obvious choice. I've made easy creamy guacamole before, and also a spicy guacamole, but a neighbor introduced me to adding a decent amount of cumin to guacamole (also known as Guacamole con Cumino!) and I loved it. I just knew that I had to recreate it!

Regular guacamole isn't particularly high in carbs – although most traditional recipes include diced or minced onions – and I use onion powder instead. I also haven't included any cilantro in this version – but if that sounds like heresy to you, feel free to add some!

How to Make Low Carb Chunky Guacamole with Cumin

Start by mashing two avocados together in a bowl with a fork.

Add some lime juice – I really think freshly squeezed is best for this recipe – and I love my squeezer!

Stir the lime juice into the mashed avocado – it will seem a little runny but remember there is more avocado to come. Next, add some ground cumin, onion powder, and garlic paste. At this point you could also add some chopped fresh cilantro leaves and/or diced jalapeños, if you like.

Dice two more avocados – I do this by removing the pit and scoring while in the skin, then using a spoon to scoop it out.

Note: If you are making this guac more than two hours in advance, keep the pits! Push one or two into the finished guacamole, cover and store in the fridge. This will help prevent it turning brown. Just remove them before serving

Add the diced avocado to the bowl, and stir to combine. Taste for seasoning, and add salt and pepper to taste. You might also like to add more cumin, or perhaps some extra lime juice.
