If you’re a kale fan like I am, you’re sure to love this twist on guacamole. The kale blends into the flavors beautifully without dominating. It just adds a little somethin’-somethin’ in taste and bite.

  • 1 leaf curly kale with rib removed, roughly chopped
  • 1 heaping tablespoon onion roughly chopped
  • 1 small clove garlic minced
  • 1 Tablespoon cilantro leaves
  • 5-6 pickled jalapeño slices roughly chopped
  • 2 ripe avocados pits removed
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons lime juice freshly-squeezed
  • Pinch salt


  • In a food processor, process kale for a few seconds until broken down.
  • Add onion, garlic, cilantro, and jalapeño. Process for about 20 seconds until combined in small pieces.
  • Scrape down the sides and add in the flesh of two avocados, one teaspoon of lime juice, and a pinch of salt. Blend until fully combined, stopping to scrape sides if necessary.
  • Taste and add more lime juice or salt, if desired, and combine. Serve immediately with chips, tacos, burritos, or anywhere guacamole is needed.
