Skinny Guacamole

Guacamole is Mexico’s beloved contribution to the world of dips.  The velvety texture and rich flavor make it addictively delicious.  Once believed to be “off-limits” if you were trying to be healthy.  In fact, avocados contain monounsaturated fat which is good- for -you.  My skinny guacamole is a wonderful appetizer or snack instead of reaching for a sugary empty calorie one.  I keep it skinny by adding things like chopped onions, tomatoes, salsa, and fill into Baked Tostitos Scoops.  The only fat added comes from the natural fat in the avocado.  The result is about half the calories and fat of regular guacamole and chips. Each serving has 110 calories and 8 grams of fat.

Helpful Tips About this Recipe

Makes 4 servings, 16 scoops total (each serving, 4 scoops)

Food Fact
Avocados, first called “alligator pears” because of their rough skin, have been eaten for over 8,000 years in Central and South America.  The avocado is a fruit, not a vegetable, and is sometimes referred to as “green butter.”

Healthy Benefits

Although the avocado is high in fat, it is the good-for-you monounsaturated fat.  It contains no cholesterol and has a lot of potassium, folate, vitamin C, B6, magnesium, and iron.

Shopping Tips

Hass avocado has a thick, pebbly skin.  It’s ripe when it has a purple-black colored skin and yields to gentle pressure.  To speed ripening, store avocados in a brown paper bag with an apple. Keep the bag on the kitchen counter at room temperature.

Storage Tip

Cover the guacamole with plastic wrap and make sure it has a close, tight fit, to prevent discoloration.

Serving Tips

Serve this guacamole stuffed in Baked Tostitos Scoops. If you can’t find them in your supermarket, scoop the guacamole onto reduced-fat tortilla chips. Or, serve in a bowl with reduced-fat tortilla chips on the side. This recipe can easily be doubled or tripled.
