Spicy homemade guacamole recipe

Shop bought guacamole is not mind blowing is it? It’s usually gloopy and full of added ingredients that I wish they hadn’t put in. It’s one item I really think you should go DIY on. You can literally make your own in seconds and use it up in loads of different ways. Here is my spicy guacamole recipe for those of you who like it hot!

Avocados really are such a fantastic addition to your low sugar diet. Technically a fruit, they are the lowest fructose fruit in town, so eat your heart out. They have that super healthy fat component which does wonders for your skin and hair, whilst making them totally satisfying and delicious. Finding new enjoyable ways of adding a little avocado to your diet is a healthy small step that will certainly help with your lower sugar plight.

I’m pretty relaxed about lots of things, but I don’t like to hear of people not eating avocados because of their calories or fat. I was guilty of this once upon a time and it’s totally crazy when they’re such a pure natural nourishing whole food.


Spicy guacamole

If you don’t like it so spicy go easy on the chilli and cayenne pepper.

Makes a big batch, probably good for at least 8 servings


  • 3 small or 2 big ripe avocados

  • 1 lime, juiced

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • 1/2 medium onion

  • few slices of chilli, chopped (optional)

  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped

  • 1 large ripe tomato


  • Mash the avocado and lime juice together in a large bowl

  • Add the salt, cayenne pepper, cumin and mix again

  • Finally add the garlic, chilli, tomato and onion and mix

  • Add extra lime juice or salt to taste

Add a dollop of this spicy guacamole to spice up a salad or a sandwich. Alternatively spread over a crispbread like Ryvita and add cheese or ham for a serious substantial snack that will certainly stop a blood sugar dip. Might be a bit too spicy for breakfast but give it a go if you dare. I’ve also been dipping some poppy seed spelt crackers in mine this week, yum!

      Hi Janet, it will keep only for a day (max 2) depending on how ripe the avocados were. If you can find a good quality ingredient bought one then that’s great as obviously saves the time and hassle. I’d say definitely give homemade a go once though as it tastes completely different in my opinion. Avocado once out of it’s skin is hard to preserve which means the supermarket ones must have been treated to keep nice for shelf life! x

  1. […] know it might seem a hassle but I promote making your own hummus like I did with guacamole. Why? Because you know exactly what’s in it and it usually tastes better. Most shop bought hummus […]
