Great Guacamole

Great Guacamole

It isn't really a party without guacamole. Low in saturated fat, this guacamole dip tastes great on any chip, cracker or veggie. Hot peppers, garlic, and tomato slices can give this dip an extra “kick." Guacamole is a favorite for any dipping occasion, and now we know that it's loaded with "good" fat!

Recipe by Leslie Barraza, Corporate Marketing Assistant, Wal-Mart.

Ingredients

  • 3-5 ripe avocados, seeded and peeled
  • 1/3 cup onion, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tomato, diced (optional)
  • 2 ounces of low-fat cream cheese
  • 3-4 drops of hot pepper sauce
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons of fresh lime juice
  • Lawry's seasoned salt, to taste

Preparation

  • In a large mixing bowl, coarsely mash avocados, leaving some chunks.
  • Add remaining ingredients and mix to blend.
  • Guacamole is best made as close to serving as possible. For short-term storage, seal in an airtight container with a piece of plastic wrap against the surface of the guacamole.
