Healthy Tropical Guacamole for Cinco de Mayo
Hooray for Cinco de Mayo, a day dedicated to indulging in food, drink, and having fun with friends and family. You’re probably planning a party with multiple rounds of margaritas, endless bowls of tortilla chips, enchiladas and all things celebrating the delicious foods of Mexico.
Cinco de Mayo doesn’t have to be associated with indulging in unhealthy options you can still enjoy all the traditional dishes on this day without caloric overload. My favorite side dish of this season is guacamole. It’s filled with healthy fats, fiber, potassium, vitamin E, vitamin K, copper, folate and vitamin C, plus it tastes incredibly fresh and light.
Guacamole can often get a bad rap for being high in fat and calories, but it’s actually quite nutrient-dense. If you’re being mindful of numbers, check out several variations that will decrease calories per serving, making this a side dish that everyone can enjoy.
My favorite way to enjoy guacamole dip is with a serving of fresh, crunchy vegetables, like diagonally sliced zucchini, cucumbers, carrots, celery and red bell peppers, or even iodine-rich roasted nori sheets for the adventurous! Of course, you can serve guacamole with traditional corn chips, but if you do, opt for a baked variety or make your own by popping olive oil-and-sea salt-topped corn tortillas in the oven until crisp.
If you want to make your guacamole ahead or store what’s left over, place thinly sliced lemons flat on top of the guacamole to reduce oxidization. When the guacamole turns brown on the top layer, which is bound to happen due to rapid oxidization, don’t worry it’ll still taste great.
This creamy guacamole is easy to make, with fewer than 10 ingredients.
Prep Time: 15 minutes Total Time: 20 minutes
1/4 cup chopped fresh mint
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1/4 teaspoon sea salt (adjust to taste) 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper (adjust to taste)
Banana: Replace 1 avocado with 1/2 ripe banana for extra creamy and sweet flair. Mash into the guacamole as you would the avocado.
Peas: Replace 1 avocado with 1 cup cooked and mashed green peas for a naturally sweet taste that also increases protein per serving.
Directions: Place pitted and peeled avocado flesh into a mixing bowl, which can double as your serving bowl. Using the back of a fork, mash the avocado until creamy.
Next, add diced pineapple, red onion, tomatoes, cilantro, parsley, sea salt, black pepper, cayenne, cumin, and juices of the lemon and lime. Stir to combine, and adjust seasonings to taste.
Serve immediately. If serving at a later time, squeeze extra lemon juice on the very top layer of the avocado, place in an airtight container and store in the refrigerator until serving time.

The best guacamole lets the mild, creaminess of ripe avocado shine. That&rsquos why Marcela&rsquos traditional take keeps the add-ins to a minimum. She uses just onion, cilantro, lime juice, salt and pepper.
Alton&rsquos easy hack for making guacamole? Use your potato masher to break up the avocado and blend it with the lime juice and spices. It makes quick work of this crowd-pleasing dip &mdash and leaves you with the perfect, chunky texture.
Ellie doesn&rsquot mash the avocado for her super-chunky take on classic guacamole. Instead, she simply dices the fruit and stirs it together with lime juice, salt, cilantro and red onion.
Guacamole with Lemon
No limes? No problem! Ina uses freshly squeezed lemon juice in her guac. Fresh lemon keeps the avocado from turning brown just like lime would &mdash and it bring a subtle sweetness to this oh-so-delicious dip.
Guacamole with Vinegar
If you&rsquore out of citrus fruit you can still make a great batch of guac. Vinegar provides the same tart acidity that fresh lime or lemon juice would. Plus, it helps the guacamole stay greener, longer.
The simple pantry ingredient that will take your guac from basic to over-the-top delicious? Chipotle peppers in adobo sauce. Chop them into small pieces and add them to the mix (along with a little bit of the adobo sauce) for a wonderfully smoky twist on the classic.
Guacamole with a Kick
How do you give your guacamole an extra kick of flavor? Try adding lots of finely chopped jalapeno and garlic, along with a smoky chipotle pepper in adobo.
Charred Corn Guacamole with Corn Chips
If you ask us, guacamole is a summer cookout must-have. It&rsquos creamy, refreshing and easy to snack on while you&rsquore grilling. That&rsquos why we love Bobby&rsquos creative take he incorporates another one of our seasonal favorites into the dip: kernels of charred sweet corn.
Thought guac couldn&rsquot get any better? Wait until you get a scoop of this bowl topped with sour cream, queso fresco, pickled jalapenos and smoky chipotle hot sauce.
Garlicky Holy Guacamole!
Rachael&rsquos 5-star guacamole has more than 100 rave reviews. Fans say it&rsquos &ldquofantastic&rdquo and report that they &ldquousually have to double the recipe&rdquo. It&rsquos that good!
Ree&rsquos giving guacamole a Greek-inspired twist by adding in some of our favorite Mediterranean ingredients: roasted red peppers, kalamata olives, crumbled feta and fresh dill.
The Best Guacamole
Simple ingredients in perfect proportion make a this dip a crowd-pleasing favorite for any event. We decided not to use tomato in ours (it makes the guac watery) and included both onion and garlic for extra zip. A healthy dose of fresh lime juice balances and brightens the flavors.
Tomatillos have a nice, bright flavor that&rsquos perfect for perking up your run-of-the-mill guacamole. Just chop them up and throw them into the food processor along with your other ingredients and you&rsquoll have a one-of-a-kind dip in a matter of minutes.
Often times, you&rsquoll see small-diced jalapeno peppers in guacamole. Tyler opts for the smaller, spicier serrano chiles instead &mdash and he cuts them into big, bold rounds for an extra pop of flavor.
Charred Pineapple Guacamole
This guacamole has got it all: creamy avocado, spicy Fresno chile, herbaceous cilantro and smoky charred pineapple. It&rsquos a must-make whenever you&rsquore grilling.
Pear and Pistachio Guacamole
This recipe is perfect for autumn or winter when petite seckel pears are in season, although you can use any other variety of pear, too. The pistachios on top make this dip extra special and contrast nicely with the fruit.
This fresh take on guacamole uses many of the classic ingredients in Ranch dressing (like sour cream, buttermilk and fresh chives) to take your favorite dip in a whole new direction.
This lighter version of guacamole is extra-creamy because of the addition of protein-dense silken tofu. Not only does it make a super-smooth puree, it reduces the fat and calories in the overall recipe.
Bobby keeps it simple with his homemade guacamole, using just a handful of simple ingredients. Diced jalapenos add a hint of spice, while lime juice and fresh cilantro keep things bright and flavorful.
The ingredient list for this recipe is deceptively short &mdash because this guac packs some serious flavor. Charred poblano, onion and lime add smokiness and a mix of fresh chorizo and crushed chicharrónes provide undeniable savor. You won&rsquot believe you only used a handful of ingredients to make it!
Giving your avocados and jalapenos a nice char before dicing will add tons of smoky flavor to your bowl of guac. Rachael uses an indoor grill pan but you could just as easily throw them on an outdoor grill.
The spiciness in this simple guacamole comes from jalapeno pepper. Bobby recommends 1 full pepper for 2 avocados, but you can add more (or less) to suit your taste.
Diced mango makes the perfect addition to guacamole. It&rsquos natural sweetness is perfectly balanced by piquant onions, spicy jalapeno peppers and cool, creamy avocado.
Strawberry and Mango Guacamole
Avocado is a fruit (it&rsquos actually a berry!) so it should come as no surprise that it pairs well with sweet mango and strawberry. Jeff takes advantage by including all three fruits in his simple guacamole (along with the traditional lime juice, cilantro and onion) for a sweet-and-savory spin on guacamole that you&rsquore guaranteed to make again and again.
Marcela takes a straightforward approach to guacamole, sticking to a handful of basic ingredients: avocado, fresh cilantro, chile pepper, lime juice, onion and salt.

A simple yet delicious combination of avocado and tomatillo for a slight twist on a beloved classic.
"I added a little bit of balsamic vinegar to the quinoa and then mixed it in with the guacamole, and the combination turned into this texture-rich, super flavorful, smooth paste that was so delicious I didn't want it to end. I thought, man, this would be great in a wrap!"
Originally from Mexico, guacamole was invented by the Aztecs. This popular dip is now famous all over the world, with chefs everywhere putting their personal touch on it and even home chefs making it for dinner. It’s available in grocery stores where it has been packaged to last for a while in your fridge, as well as fresh at Mexican and Tex-Mex restaurants. Most people have their favorite recipe, but one thing is for certain: this dip is a favorite way to use avocados.
No matter the recipe, avocados are a primary part of guacamole. Ripe ones are mashed with salt until chunky. Sometimes citrus juice is added to brighten the flavor and help the avocados keep their color. Others call for onion, garlic, diced tomatoes, or herbs to be added. Unfortunately, guacamole can turn brown quickly. Lemon or lime juice can help with this, as can storing the guacamole in an air tight container in the fridge. While some people prefer their guacamole to be creamier and some like to leave some chunks, the end result of a delicious dip is the name.
Guacamole is generally served with tortilla chips as an appetizer or as a dip with the meal. In Mexican and Tex-Mex restaurants it comes standard on a lot of dishes, including quesadillas, burritos, and nachos. This dip can also be served on salads. It is often a very cool part of the meal and can help to counter some of the spicier ingredients that are so common in Mexican cooking.
With fresh avocados as the main ingredient it makes sense that guacamole would be high in healthy fat, several vitamins, fiber, and potassium. This healthy food is also a good source of carotenoids and magnesium. Of course, like any good thing, too much guacamole can add a lot of calories to the dish you’re eating. But when guacamole is made with a few fresh ingredients and enjoyed in a responsible manner, it’s a great way to make sure your diet is varied and includes the vitamins and minerals that your body needs.
The next time you’re out at a restaurant ask and see if they make their guacamole fresh. There’s really nothing as delicious as this simple dip. Or pick up a few ripe avocados and make some for your dinner. Everyone will be impressed that you know how to make this favorite!
You’ve asked for our guacamole recipe
Don’t take our word on it. It’s easy and quick. That’s both quick to make and quickly eaten.
– When the mix says “add 2 medium avocados” add just 1 SlimCado. Our tropical avocado is that big.
– Make the guacamole the night before. That lets the mix release all its flavors. Just make, cover with plastic film and refrigerate.
– You may find a thin layer of water on top of your guac after a night in the refrigerator. Just pour the water off, it’s done its job helping the dry mix release all of its flavors. Stir the guac and serve. Await your compliments.
– What about browning? SlimCados brown much slower than haas avocados. Covering the top of the guac with a layer of plastic film should avoid most of the browning you’re used to with haas.
Why the difference?
Haas are grown in dry climates. SlimCados are grown in Florida and the Caribbean where it’s anything but dry.
These are tropical avocados. Grown in the heat and the humidity of the tropics, they naturally have higher levels of water in them.
We use that to our advantage in making guacamole. The higher water level inside the fruit helps release the mix’s full flavor and lets it brown much slowly.
Is this the only guac you can make?
No, we make lots of different guacamole dips, spreads, salads, smoothies, soups, and even desserts .
But when it comes to making guac for our visiting customers, we grab a mix because we want our avocados to star in the dish.
For fun, serve the guac in the SlimCado’s skin. Eye-catching and time-saving in one more way, you don’t have a dish to clean.
26 Guacamole Recipes That Make the Classic Dip Even More Delicious (If You Can Believe It)
There are so many reasons to love guacamole. The Mexican dish (which literally means &ldquoavocado sauce&rdquo in the Nahuatl dialect) is creamy, refreshing, spicy, and just about perfect atop nearly any food. The most basic guacamole recipe involves some combination of mashed avocado, chopped onion, lime or lemon juice, salt, pepper, and garlic. But longtime guac fans know there&rsquos nothing wrong with a little extra seasoning&mdashin fact, adding fresh fruit, veggies, nuts, spices, and herbs only makes us love the versatile dip even more. Check out 26 of our favorite game-changing guacamole recipes below.
1. Super Simple Guacamole
It&rsquos important to walk before you can run. This basic guacamole is a good place to start. With avocados, lime, red onion, garlic, cherry tomatoes, cilantro, and salt, it&rsquos a perfect recipe for guac beginners (or purists).
2. Kale Guacamole
Get your daily dose of greens with this healthier guac recipe. Shallots, garlic, fresh herbs, and jalapeño pepper give the brightly colored dip a ton of flavor and spice.

4. Grilled Guacamole With Parmesan and Basil
Sticking avocado halves on the grill for a few minutes intensifies the flavor and adds char-y goodness to your guac. This unconventional recipe also features fresh basil, lemon, and Parmesan cheese.
5. Roasted Tomato Guacamole
This is a flavor combo we didn&rsquot know we needed. Roasted cherry tomatoes, avocado, and red onion combine with olive oil, basil, and garlic in this fresh, Italian-style dip.
6. Tropical Fruit Guacamole
Can&rsquot swing a beach vacation this winter? Make this sunny dip and pretend you&rsquore in the tropics instead. Chopped pineapple and mango combine with jalapeño peppers to make this sweet-and-spicy guac an instant go-to.
7. Creamy Guacamole Hummus
Why choose between dips when you can combine two into one awesome dish? First, blend avocado, tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt, and cumin. When that&rsquos all blended, add the chickpeas and mix until smooth. Hummus and guacamole cravings solved.
8. Spicy Apple Guacamole
Fruit-filled guacamole is delish, and apple guac is no exception. Green apples add a tart crunch to the otherwise classic dip (it also calls for red onion, cilantro, and lime juice), and a jalapeño spices things up a bit.
9. Charred Jalapeño and Peach Guacamole

Bacon and cheese make anything taste better, right? This decadent guacamole features crumbled bacon and chunks of cojita cheese. Add a generous amount of cilantro, chili pepper, and lime juice to prevent the rich dip from feeling too heavy.
15. Mint and Pea Guacamole
Peas sound like an odd thing to put in guacamole, but they add a thicker texture and slight sweetness to the dip. Cook 1/4 cup fresh peas (about 15 pea pods), then mash with avocado. Add in coriander seeds and fresh mint for a unique flavor that upgrades guac from game-day snack to dinner party-approved side.
16. Roasted Chili Mango Guacamole
Spice up avocados&rsquo creamy texture with chunks of sweet mango and spicy chili, and keep it fresh by using lemon juice and apple cider vinegar. Partygoers will love this colorful and flavor-jammed guacamole recipe.
17. Strawberry Peach Guacamole

This hybrid appetizer combines edamame, Greek yogurt, and tomato with classic guacamole ingredients. Pro tip: You&rsquoll need a food processor (or some really strong arms) to grind up the edamame beans.
19. Spicy Cheddar Cheese Guacamole
Feed the troops with this unconventional and filling spicy guacamole recipe. It combines cheddar cheese, black beans, tomato, and green onions. Only downside? It&rsquoll be gone before you know it.
20. Creamy Greek Yogurt Guacamole
Add some lean protein to snack time by mixing 1/4 cup Greek yogurt into your guacamole. Serve with carrot sticks, celery, or whole-wheat crackers for an extra-healthy mini-meal.
21. Roasted Poblano Guacamole
Get your roast on with this crunchy guacamole recipe. Poblano peppers go in the oven for 30-40 minutes at 475 degrees, and sweet corn gets charred in a skillet for 5-10 minutes. Once cooled, mix the two with avocado, cilantro, white onion, and lime juice.
22. Bacon Feta Guacamole
Another heartier recipe is topped with crispy crumbled bacon and creamy, tangy feta cheese. Did someone say football season?
23. Fajita Guacamole
Deconstructed fajitas? Sign us up. This genius recipe uses onions, red and green peppers, lime, and queso fresco to make a Mexican fiesta in your mouth.
24. Crab Guacamole
Add protein to your dip by substituting some of the avocado for fresh crabmeat. It&rsquos a filling and surprising addition, and way easier than making crab cakes. Serve with sesame crackers or crispy bread.
25. Banana Cashew Guacamole
Bananas in guacamole? Yep, it&rsquos a thing, and we love it. Mix a banana with avocados, chopped cashews, and the juice of half a lime. Sprinkle on some garlic salt and cumin, and you&rsquove got an extra-creamy guac with a dose of protein.
26. Magic Green Sauce
While it&rsquos not exactly guacamole, we couldn&rsquot leave this inventive twist on the classic avocado dip out in the cold. It can be added to salads, chicken, crackers, or veggies, and is made with pistachios, avocado, jalapeño, lime, and garlic.
SlimCado, the tropical avocado
What is the SlimCado? It’s a tropical avocado that naturally has up to half the fat and a third fewer calories than the hass avocado. SlimCados are a different branch on the avocado family tree. They’d have to be, they’re grown in very humid climates, not dry climates like the hass.
NOT GMO: SlimCados are NOT GMO. For over 95 years, Brooks Tropicals has grown SlimCados.
Why the label? These avocados can be 3 to 4 times larger than the hass avocado. Sometimes it’s thought to be a large hass avocado. Since 1984 the label has helped us say: this is not a hass avocado. It’s a lighter tasting avocado that naturally has less fat and fewer calories.
Taste: Light texture with a sweet, buttery taste. Some varieties have a nutty flavor to them.
Selection: A fruit that yields slightly to gentle pressure is ready for chopping. With more give, it may be ready for mashing, as in guacamole.
