Lightened Up Guacamole

  • AppetizersRecipevegetable
  • One of my favorite snacks is guacamole, and while avocados are filled with one of the “good fats,” or monounsaturated fat, sometimes I want a lighter option. This lightened up guacamole recipe has the same great taste and creaminess of regular guacamole with less fat and more fiber. Pair it with veggies for dipping for an even lighter option.

    Lightened Up Guacamole 

    1 avocado, halved and pitted
    1 can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
    1/2 poblano pepper, seeded, roughly chopped
    1/4 C red onion, chopped
    Juice from 1/2 lime
    1/2 C fresh cilantro, loosely packed
    2 plum tomatoes, seeds and juice removed, roughly chopped
    1/4 tsp salt
    1/4 tsp cumin
    2 cloves garlic, smashed

    Pour the beans in a food processor and pulse for a few seconds. Put everything else in the food processor and pulse to desired texture.

    All the flavor, half the guilt! :) Happy snacking!

    Add this to Mexican dishes or as a spread on a sandwich for great flavor or take it to your next party.
