Few appetizers are more associated with Mexican food than guacamole (gwah-kuh-MOH-lay). Who can resist this sumptuous green dip made from ripe avocados? This recipe is the real thing with just the right balance of avocados, onion, jalapeño chilies, cilantro and lime juice.
SAVE ON THIS RECIPE!
Avocados are best when picked while still hard, which is often how they arrive in the supermarket. Let them stand at room temperature for a few days to ripen. Speed ripening by placing the avocados in a paper bag. Ripe avocados will give slightly when pressed with your thumb.
You can use 2 tablespoons canned chopped green chilies for the jalapeño chilies.
For 0 grams of fat and 5 calories per serving, substitute a 15-ounce can of asparagus cuts, drained then blended or processed until smooth, for the avocados. Stir in 1/4 cup fat-free mayonnaise.
