Is it possible to one-up an already over-the-top recipe for fried guacamole? Challenge accepted. We wanted to craft a fried guacamole recipe that was more palatable than a thickly breaded ball of molten hot, slightly melty mashed avocado, something more ingenious than oil-slicked, crisp-on-the-outside, mushy-on-the-inside avocado fries, and something that didn’t require skewers, sticks or other kabob accessories. Behold: Air Fried Guacamole!
Our Air Fried Guacamole marries the classic chips and guac combo into a handheld showstopper appetizer—no double dipping or browning-in-the-bowl guacamole concerns necessary. To keep things Primal/paleo, gluten- and grain-free, we used cassava flour and grain-free tortilla chips, and instead of deep frying, we used an AirFryer.
(Air) Fried Guacamole
Time: 20 minutes
- 4 avocados
- Juice from 1 lime
- 1 shallot, finely chopped

- In a small bowl, mash the avocados with the lime juice, shallot, salt and cilantro. Set aside.
- Scoop guacamole (we used a small ice cream scoop; it's about 2 tablespoons of guacamole) onto a parchment-lined cookie sheet and freeze 3 hours or until hardened.
- Whisk the cassava flour and Primal Kitchen Avocado Oil together to create a wet batter.
- Crush the tortilla chips.
- Spray AirFryer basket with Primal Kitchen Avocado Oil Spray.
