How to make guacamole
Peel and pit ripe avocados and place into a medium mixing bowl. Using a fork, mash avocados. Add tomato, white (or red) onion, jalapeño, cilantro, garlic, lime juice, and cumin, stirring to combine. Add salt to taste. Enjoy with oven-baked tortilla chips, raw vegetables, or as a topping for veggie chili, tacos, fajitas, tostadas, nachos, breakfast burritos, or simple beans and rice.
Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. The avocado will brown some; give it a stir before eating leftovers.
Is guacamole healthy or fattening?
Guacamole is healthy, but eating too much can be fattening. Why? Avocados are a great source of fiber and healthy mono- and poly-unsaturated fat. This fruit is also a great source of various vitamins and minerals. However, due to its high-fat content, the calorie-density of avocados is high, so overeating can promote weight gain.
Nutritionally, guacamole is rich in gut-friendly fiber and B-vitamins—niacin, folic acid, and B6. This Guacamole is also a good source of the chain-breaking antioxidants Vitamin C and E. Namely, the combination of Vitamins C and E has been shown to stop the production (break the chain) of free radicals. At high levels, free radicals can cause damage to cells and possibly lead to cancer. Not only does Guacamole taste great, but it is also part of a healthy diet.
