This guacamole with kale combination provides all the flavors you love in guac!


Recipe: Guakalemole



3 leaves of kale
4 medium ripe avocados, halved and pitted
3 to 4 tablespoons lime juice (about 1½ medium limes)
¾ teaspoon kosher salt, to taste
⅓ cup roughly chopped red onion
¼ cup roughly chopped fresh cilantro, lightly packed
1 small jalapeño, seeds and membranes removed, roughly chopped
1 small tomato, diced


  1. To prepare the kale, first remove the tough ribs with a chef’s knife and discard them. Chop the kale into small, bite-sized pieces. Sprinkle it lightly with salt, followed by a squeeze of lime juice (about 1 teaspoon). Massage the kale by scrunching it up in your hands, repeating until the kale is darker green and fragrant to remove some of the bitterness. Make 1 cup of packed kale.
  2. Put de-skinned avocados into the bowl of a food processor, discarding any bruised, browned areas. Add 3 tablespoons lime juice and the salt. Blend until the mixture is fairly smooth. Scrape down the sides as necessary.
  3. Add kale, onion, cilantro, tomato and jalapeño. Blend until the mixture is mostly smooth, with only tiny bits of kale and onion remaining (or completely smooth, if you prefer).
  4. Taste, and add additional salt and/or lime juice to taste, then re-blend.
  5. Serve immediately.
