Best Keto Guacamole Recipe
I am so excited to share this Best Keto Guacamole Recipe with you! I call it Keto but really, it’s the way authentic guacamole is made naturally.
I was traveling this summer and came upon a Mexican restaurant that had a guacamole bar! A guac bar was music to my ears, especially when doing the keto diet! You should have seen how excited I was. We ended up eating at this place many times over our vacay and quickly became friends with the people who worked there. They shared the secrets with me on how they make the best guacamole in Texas! And, yes, there is a secret ingredient!
Here’s the video that walks you through step by step to give you a visual on exactly how you cut the avocados to how you prepare this recipe. This guacamole is served in a molcajete! How cute is that?!!
Here’s how they make it!

Best Keto Guacamole Recipe Secret Ingredient
The secret ingredient is jalapeno juice. The best way for you to quickly get jalapeno juice is to use the juice from a can or jar of pickled jalapenos! This is exactly what they used!
How to Store this Keto Guacamole
If you plan to store this guacamole, be sure to sprinkle a bit of lemon or lime juice on top of the mixture and seal it with a sheet of plastic wrap so no air is in between the guacamole and the plastic. If air is in it, it will likely turn brown on top. I usually only make enough guacamole for us to eat in one setting so I don’t have leftovers. It’s always best when it’s fresh.
