I love avocados and …. guacamole. Even though the fat in avocados is healthy fat, the calories can be a bit overwhelming so I lightened up the dip by including a larger amount of other veggies! Still tastes great but now I can indulge in more dip with less fat.


2 ripe avocados, mashed

juice of 2 limes

Seeded, chopped tomates at least equal in volume to the avocados

1 small jalapeno, minced

1 green or red bell pepper, chopped

1 small red onion chopped

Combine all the ingredients in a bowl. Let it sit for about 1/2 and hour to let flavors combine and enjoy with crudite.
