Super Green Guacamole is a deliciously nutrition-enhanced guac that can be kept refrigerated for at least 2-3 days. An lower fat version can be made by replacing half of the avocado with edamame beans or green peas. Leftover guacamole makes delicious pasta sauce...simply stir into hot fresh pasta.
Ingredients:
  • 2 ripe avocados
  • ¾ - 1 cup spinach, (press firmly to measure)
  • ¼ bunch cilantro or parsley (opt)
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • ⅛-1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (opt)
  • 1 large lemon or lime, juiced (2 Tbsp)
  • ¾ tsp salt
  • FOR DIPPING:
  • 6 stalks celery
  • 1 colored bell pepper
  • 1 pkg baked, low-sodium baked organic corn chips
Directions:
  1. Cut avocado around the middle (lengthwise), twist and separate halves. Scoop out the pit with a spoon and then scoop out the flesh of each side with the spoon. Place in food processor with the ā€œSā€ blade. Remove tough stems from both the spinach and cilantro/parsley. Add the greens, garlic cloves, cayenne, lemon or lime juice and salt and blend until creamy and smooth, scraping sides of processor if necessary. Transfer to a serving bowl.
  2. Cut celery and bell pepper into sticks/slices and arrange with corn chips around or next to SUPER GREEN GUACAMOLE for dipping.
  3. NOTE: Make your own fat-free corn chips by warming store-bought corn tortillas and cut into wedges the shape of corn chips.
