Variation
2 tablespoons canned chopped green chilies can be substituted for the jalapeño chilies.
“A healthy dip—now that’s an important part of snacking. I love chips but stay away from dips because they are so high in fat. But with this dip, I don’t have to worry about that.” Marilyn B.
A Note from the Nutritionist:
For an even lighter “guacamole” with no fat and 5 calories per serving, substitute a 15-ounce can of asparagus cuts, drained then blended or processed in a food processor until smooth, for the avocados. Stir in 1/4 cup fat-free mayonnaise.
