Not only do these taste good, but they are good for you! Did you know avocados are a good source of fiber, potassium, and vitamins C,K, folate, and B6? Half an avocado has 160 calories, 15 grams of heart-healthy unsaturated fat, and only 2 grams saturated fat. One globe contains more than one-third daily value of vitamin C, and more than half the day’s requirements of vitamin K. This so called "alligator pear" is a good source of nutrition and even my 10 month old loves them. How can you feel bad eating this guacamole recipe almost everyday? :)
1-2 cap fulls of lemon juice (great flavor add and keeps it from turning brown so fast)
1-2 good shakes of garlic salt
1-2 good shakes of chili powder (or taco seasoning)
1/4 cup of fresh salsa (you can also buy this at your local grocery store in the refrigerated area)
Simply scrape out your avocado and mash with a fork. Stir in the remaining ingredients. A perfect dip for chips, veggies, or mixed in a wrap! Serve with a smile and enjoy!
