Guacamole is a wonderful snack or appetizer. The traditional recipe is using Avacado - a great source of healthy fat. I give a recipe for that and also one made without Avacado, but with Asapragus - making a wonderful Weight Wather's alternative.
12 pts for entire recipe
2 Avacados, ripe
8 oz. jar of salsa, hottness to your taste - choose one that is natural without oil
- Scoop avacados out of shell and discard pits.
- Mashed in a small bowl. Avacados do not have to be smooth, you can leave them chunky
- Mix in the salsa. As an alternative, add all ingredients (except Asapragus and yogurt) from the Asparagus recipe below.
