Recipe: Healthy Guacamole!

I know it doesn’t roll off the tongue quite as well as Holy Guacamole! but this healthy treat is anything but holy. Add some healthy home-baked chips, and you have a tasty (mostly) guilt-free snack to occupy your mind while you wait in an endless game queue (you know who you are!). And this is so easy to make, you could whip up a batch while you wait. I’m not a fan of really spicy guac, so this has no spice or heat to it, but you can improvise and add your favorite pepper or spice. Red onion and fresh garlic are also nice additions.


1 medium avocado, Haas, peeled and pitted
15 oz can white beans, small, drained and rinsed
1 Tbsp fresh lime juice
1 medium fresh tomato, diced
2 Tbsp cilantro, fresh, chopped
1/8 tsp table salt, or to taste
1/8 tsp black pepper, or to taste
8 oz baked low-fat tortilla chips


Combine avocado, beans, and lime juice in a food processor; process until blended and smooth. If you don’t have a food processor, mash ingredients together with a fork.

Transfer mixture to a medium bowl and fold in tomato and cilantro (or other added flavor enhancers). Season to taste with salt and pepper. Yields about 1/4 cup of guacamole and 1 ounce of baked chips per serving. Serves 8.
