Guacamole 3 Ways

Today’s post is all about guacamole because….who doesn’t love it?

Try my basic recipe; lighten it up by reducing the amount of avocado and adding in green peas, or go in a different direction all together with guacamole hummus.

All three recipes have the same basic ingredients and can be easily changed based on your personal preferences. If you like things spicy, add some jalapeno. Or, if you prefer a stronger onion flavor, use red onion rather than green.

If you use fresh ingredients, it’s really hard to go wrong with guacamole!

Ingredients:

  • avocados
  • limes
  • fresh cilantro
  • sea salt
  • green onions
  • green peas
  • Greek yogurt
  • white beans

Basic Recipe

In a large bowl, mash together a few avocados, a large handful of chopped fresh cilantro, the juice from 2-3 limes, and about 1/3 cup of chopped green onions. Mix in a little sea salt to taste and serve.

I like to eat mine with fresh chopped tomatoes on top.

Low-Fat Recipe

Microwave or steam one cup of green peas until tender. Put the peas in a small food processor and process until they no longer resemble peas. Add in one large avocado, a large handful of shopped fresh cilantro, the juice from 2-3 limes, and about 1/3 cup of chopped green onions. Mix in sea salt to taste and serve with fresh tomatoes on top.

Guacamole Hummus

In a food processor add 2/3 cup Greek yogurt, one cup of white beans, one avocado, one garlic clove, a large handful of chopped fresh cilantro, the juice from 2-3 limes, and about 1/3 cup of chopped green onions.

Process until smooth and enjoy with tortilla chips, crackers, or chopped veggies.

 Enjoy!
