Spicy Tuna Guacamole

Cinco de Mayo is upon us! We’re kicking off a week of Mexican-inspired recipes with our absolute fav: GUAC. *swoon* Jose Pistola’s is one of our favorite Mexican restaurants in Philly, and that’s largely due to their incredible spicy tuna guacamole. What. A. Combo. Naturally, we took it upon ourselves to recreate this delicious app to serve a crowd, so we can serve it at Cinco de Mayo parties for years to come.

We decided to give Siete Foods’ Grain Free Tortilla Chips a try for this one, and they did not disappoint. Siete makes their tortilla chips without any corn, gluten, dairy, or soy. Instead, they use cassava and coconut flour and ground chia seed, and then fry in avocado oil and bake them along with some sea salt for flavor. Hell yeah. These chips also come in Lime and Nacho flavor—we strongly encourage you to run to your nearest health food store and snag the Nacho ones ASAP. Maybe grab a couple bags, because we promise you they won’t last long.
