    Remove stems, seeds and membranes from chilies; chop chilies. Cut avocados lengthwise in half; remove pit and peel. Place avocados in medium glass or plastic bowl; mash.

    Stir in chilies and remaining ingredients except tortilla chips. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour to blend flavors. Serve with tortilla chips.

Expert Tips

  • 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.
  • 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.
