A tasty alternative with less fat and fewer calories than traditional guacamole.
Updated May 9, 2005

Ingredients

  • 1 can (15 ounces) asparagus cuts, drained
  • 1 large tomato, seeded and chopped (1 cup)
  • 1 medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-fat mayonnaise or salad dressing
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 3 to 6 drops red pepper sauce
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • Baked tortilla chips, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    Place asparagus in blender or food processor. Cover and blend on medium speed until smooth.
  • 2
    Stir together asparagus and remaining ingredients except tortilla chips. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour to blend flavors. Serve with tortilla chips.

  • Serve this pretty green dip in a hollowed-out red or yellow bell pepper for a pretty presentation.
  • If you have a handheld immersion blender, use it for this recipe. Put ingredients in a large bowl, and puree until smooth. You’ll have more control over the process and less of a mess to clean.
