Chimi Crab Guacamole

Skill Level
4 to 6 servings

Spicy and over the top, in the best possible way. If fresh crab seems like a splurge for guac, use tiny bay shrimp. Their firm texture and sweetness stand up well to the chile heat—and they’re a lot cheaper than crab. 


  • 3 tbsp. Organic Chimichurri Spice Blend, divided
  • ½ white onion, finely diced
  • ½ large jalapeño, minced
  • Handful of cilantro leaves, chopped
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt, plus more to taste
  • 3 tbsp. freshly squeezed lime juice (from about 2 limes)
  • 2 large ripe avocados
  • ½ lb. cooked fresh crab or bay shrimp

Putting It All Together

  1. Mix together 1½ tbsp. spice blend, onion, jalapeño, cilantro, salt and lime juice. Scoop avocado flesh into a medium bowl and mash everything together with a fork.
  2. Gently fold in crab or shrimp. Sprinkle with remaining spice blend.
  3. Serve with tortilla chips or in lettuce cups.
