Guacamole with Low Carb Tortilla Chips

Updated: Mar 11, 2019

Guacamole is a staple of any good party. This guacamole recipe turns out perfectly every time, and it's so easy to make. Guacamole is a Mexican dip that made with fresh avocados. Avocados are an amazing food. They are full of potassium, vitamin K, vitamin E and B vitamins, have a very high amount of fiber. They are a great food that should be a part of your diet.


I made and served this guacamole with homemade low carb tortilla chips for a St. Patrick's Day party. It was a big hit! The chips are made from Mission™ Carb Balance Tortillas. These do contain grains, the high fiber makes these a lower carb option than regular tortilla chips. You can bake or fry the chips ahead of time.
