We make guacamole a lot in my house, it’s one of the few ways I can get Madison to eat avocados. For a crab-less version, you can check out my Best Guacamole Recipe. You may also enjoy Guacamole Deviled Eggs or Breaded Chicken Cutlets with Deconstructed Guacamole.

  1. Gina, I’m making this recipe now to take to a party, but there’s something wrong.  The instructions say to mix crab, avocados AND sour cream…. But the ingredients do not list sour cream.  How much sour cream is required?  Light, I assume?  Please correct so I can ensure I make it accurately next time.

    1. Hi, Did you make it with sour cream?  I was hoping I found a dairy free recipe until I read your post and realized it might have sour cream!

      1. Ok…did anyone answer you regarding the sour cream? This ingredient makes no sense for this recipe. I’m hoping to make this for a party this weekend. Thanks!

    My BF won't eat crab (unless it's in a crab cake) but he LOVED this. He had his w/ chips. I'm avoiding carbs so I had mine in romaine leaves. Really good.

    I'm not sure my original post went through, but based on nutritionals vs calories, something's wrong. Could you please post the actual values? I thought this might be too good to be true. As an above poster noted, if the NI is correct, then the calories are over 250, rather than 91. Maybe that's why it looks so super delicious. Thanks.

    Love guacamole…love crab…never mixed them together in a bowl…what a fantastic idea!

  8. The macros don't add up to 91 calories. Could you clarify? According the the macro breakdown there should be ((31-5)*4)+(27*4)+(6*9)= 266 calories/serving.

    Crab in guacamole?! You are SUCH a genius! I could face plant all up in a bowl of this right now.
    And it's 4 am. So, that's saying something. Pinned!

    This looks fantastic! It reminds me of last year when I was lucky to visit New Jersey and my friend whipped up a big bowl of delicious crabocado 😀
    Thanks for your recipe 😀 x

    This looks delicious! I had crab topped guacamole for the first time recently at a new restaurant her in Phoenix and I LOVED it! Will be making this the next time I want an easy appetizer!

    Looks tasty & easy to veganize with seitan instead of crab. Red onion is an awesome option for guac!
