Mireille's Journey To Health

REAL, FRUGAL, HEALTHY, and FUN!!!

Homestyle Guacamole

guacamoleMy family and I loved making our own homemade guacamole long before I got into healthy eating.  Lucky for us, we’ve been making it healthy the whole time!  For that reason, I haven’t thought to share the recipe.  Sometimes, I forget about the healthy dishes I started eating before I studied nutrition.  Now, I love guacamole, as I said before.  I like the guacamole I’m served in restaurants, and even a few varieties from the grocery store.  However, not only is mine healthier, it is also way better tasting!

Ingredients:

4 ripe avocadoes

1/3 cup olive or avocado oil

Juice of 1 lime

1 large tomato chopped or approximate equivalent of a smaller variety

1/3 cup chopped red onion

1 jalapeno (optional)

1 large garlic clove, or 2 small

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp pepper

Directions: Peel and pit avocadoes.  Mash the avocado in a bowl with the oil and the lime juice.  Add chopped tomato, onion, jalapeno, and garlic.  Stir in salt and pepper.  That’s seriously all you do.  Enjoy!  I enjoy guacamole with my Maple Bacon Sweet Potato Chips.  The flavors are so good together!
