Yes, guacamole is almost always gluten-free, but who doesn’t love a good guacamole recipe. I first learned how to make guacamole from a friend in college, and over the years the recipe has evolved. This is my go-to item to bring to any group gathering or party, and it has become very popular amongst my friends. Let me know your thoughts.

-The Gluten-Free Gal’s Guide


  • 4 Medium Avocados
  • 1/2 Large Onion (chopped)
  • 2 tbsp. Salsa (I like a mild guacamole, so I use a mild salsa, but feel free to use your favorite at whatever heat you like)
  • 1 lime
  • 12 Cherry Tomatos
  • 2 tbsp. Cilantro (coarsely chopped)


  1. Chop the onion and add to a large bowl.
  2. Add the salsa to the onion and stir.
  3. Cut the avocados by removing the skin and the pits, and add to the onion and salsa. Mash the avocados till smooth in consistency.
  4. Slice the lime in half, and squeeze the juice into the mixture. Mash the lime juice into the avocado mixture so that is is fully combined.
  5. Slice the tomatoes in half, and add to the mixture. Stir so that they are evenly distributed.
  6. Chop the cilantro and add to the mixture. Stir so that the cilantro is evenly distributed.
  7. Serve and enjoy.

*If not serving immediately, place the guacamole in an air tight container. Place a layer of plastic wrap on top of the guacamole and press down firmly creating an air tight barrier. Cover the guacamole and keep in the refrigerator until ready to serve*
