Guacamole with Sweet Chips
I'm still recovering from the torrent of food that was the Super Bowl. I cooked all day, and couldn't help but indulge (read: over-eat) in the Paleo deliciousness: avocado deviled eggs, guacamole, spaghetti squash with meatballs, and of course, guacamole. I probably ate my body weight in this stuff. And I could have eaten more, but the game ended and my roommates looked at me like, "you need to stop." The best part about this guacamole is the chunky, real ingredients. No sour cream, no fillers. It's so simple to make and so good that you, too, will have your roommates saying, "enough is enough."
- 3 avocados
- 1/2 onion
- 1/2 tomato
- 1/2 tsp garlic
- 1/2 lime (for the lime juice)
- 1 jalapeño (optional for extra spice)
- 1/4 cup cilantro (optional)
- Mash 3 ripe avocados with a fork until creamy and place in medium bowl.
- Chop onion and tomato into small to medium pieces (depending on how chunky you want the guac) and mix in with avocado.
- Mince garlic and jalapeño (to allow for even distribution) and add to the bowl.
- Stir all together until all ingredients are blended well.
- Squeeze lime on mixture and sprinkle cilantro.
- Mix well.
- Eat and Enjoy!
For the Super Bowl party, I provided these amazing sweet potato chips from Jacksons Honest which served as the best vehicles for guacamole consumption. The sweet to savory ratio was on point! I'm telling you, this stuff is addicting. The healthy fats from the avocado and the carbs from the chips and veggies make for a filling and nutritious treat. Pair it with some bacon or chicken for the protein and you have yourself a balanced snack!
guacamole: 15.7g fat/10.9g carbs/2.2g protein/110.5 calories (if divided into 5 servings)
