Fresh, homemade guacamole is a staple in our household! We prepare it at least once a week. We use it for dipping and also as a topping on taco salads or the cauli rice “burrito bowls” we make at home. The kids love to tweak the ingredients and make their own guacamole to suit their taste. Today I’m sharing the basic recipe we use along with an amazing grain-free chip to dip into it!
When I learned about these grain-free tortilla chips from Siete Foods, I was excited to try them! I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised. They’re delicious and perfectly crunchy! My personal favorite is Sea Salt, but the Nacho and Lime flavors are great, too. Everyone in my family loved them, and they now make it into our grocery cart on a regular basis! I also was inspired to read how the brand started out, when a family rallied together to support one of their own who’d been diagnosed with an auto-immune disorder. I love hearing how families support one another in their wellness journeys!
Siete Tortilla Chips are paleo-friendly and made from the tuberous starchy root, cassava. Cassava is similar to potatoes/yams and are native to Brazil and other tropical areas of the Americas. As a tuberous root vegetable, cassava is gluten-free, grain-free, and nut-free. They also have several types of grain free tortillas in their product line up. (*Note: NOT for use on the Whole30 because store bought chips are not compliant. Click here for the post on this topic.)
Siete Grain Free Tortilla Chips and Tortillas can be found in Whole Foods stores, as well as Central Market. To see if the store nearest you carries them, click here. They can also be found online at sietefoods.com (free ground shipping on all orders!) or Amazon!
And now for the recipe…make it to suit your own tastes, you really can’t go wrong!
- Choose three or four ripe avocados.
- Scoop the avocado out, and into a bowl.
- Squeeze the juice of half a lime into the bowl.
- Add salt, pepper, and garlic powder, to suit your taste (and a dash of cayenne pepper or diced jalapenos, if you want an extra kick!)
- Combine all of the ingredients until you achieve the desired texture
- Remove the seeds from a tomato and dice the outer portion. Add to bowl and stir.
- Optional addition: diced purple onion
- Garnish with fresh chopped cilantro leaves.
- Along with the chips, I like to serve slices of carrots, jicama, and cucumber for dipping
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!
