I’m excited to write to share a chunky guacamole recipe with you today. I know. It sounds weird to be excited about a chunky guacamole recipe, but I really am. I’m so used to eating guacamole that is all smushed together that I forgot how good each of these beautiful ingredients taste individually. The chunky texture really helps this guacamole come alive.
Before I share more with you, I want to disclose that this post contains affiliate links to some of the products I mention. All opinions are my own.
Is it okay for me to brag for a minute?
I really do make one heck of a guacamole. Yes. I really do. You can get my fresh and flavorful guacamole recipe here. It’s perfection and I get tons of compliments on it every time I make it.
I love guacamole so much that I decided to mess with perfection. That’s right. I messed with my perfect guacamole recipe to create another delicious guacamole concotion – chunky guacamole! It’s really good too.
The chunky guacamole feels more like a meal vs. an appetizer though. I don’t know why, maybe because the chunks make it feel more substantial and meaty. So, I enjoyed eating this chunky guacamole for lunch alongside some organic tortilla chips.
I also want to mention that this recipe is inspired by the “Raw Guacamole Tacos” recipe I found in the Daily Greens 4-Day Cleanse book by Shauna Martin. I love Daily Greens juices (which you can buy at many natural grocery stores) and Shauna’s book is exceptional too! Shauna serves her chunky guacamole in lettuce cups to keep her meal completely raw and vegan. Brilliant!
(BTW, Shauna is amazing. She was diagnosed with MS but lives a mostly symptom-free life. She attributes this to the “power of raw foods and daily green juices.” She replaced toxic, processed foods with fresh and whole foods. You can read more about her inspiring story, and find tons of excellent juice recipes in her book.)
After I assembled all the ingredients for my chunky guacamole, I decided to add a dash of Tajin seasoning. This seasoning has so much flavor – it’s very tangy and citrusy. (Please note that Tajin contains no gluten ingredients but it is not certified gluten-free.)
Tajin seasoning is the perfect addition to any Mexican dish. (The Tajin seasoning is the red sprinkles you see on the chips and atop the chunky guacamole.) Tajin goes so well on so many dishes. One of my favorite snacks is jicama chips topped with a squeeze of lime and then Tajin seasoning. Try it some time for a fresh, whole and low-calorie snack.
As you can see, this beautiful creation is packed with wholesome ingredients that are good for you. It’s vegan, raw and filled with delicious antioxidants and nutrients.
I hope you enjoy making this chunky guacamole recipe (and eating it too) as much as I did.
Cheers to good health, through and through!
