Guacamole Recipe: Happy Cinco de Mayo

by frugalista on May 4, 2010

Hola, Mis Frugalistas! I mentioned on twitter last week that I have a mean guacamole recipe that I use. I’m addicted to guacamole because avocados are good for your skin and guacamole is great with margaritas, a Frugalista’s dream. So, in honor of Cinco de Mayo, I wanted to post it for my pretties!

Guacamole with Red Pepper

4 avocados, halved and pitted
Grated zest and juice of 1 1/2 limes
4 slices red onion, diced
1 jalapeno, finely diced
1/4 cup minced cilantro leaves
Salt and pepper to taste (I use garlic salt for a little edge)
1/2 red bell pepper, finely diced
Scrape avocados into a bowl. Add lime zest and juice and mash with a spoon or fork until chunky or smooth-whichever you prefer. Stir in the onion, jalapeno, cilantro, and a good pinch of salt and pepper to taste. Fold in the red pepper. Serve with your favorite chips and wedges of bell peppers.
Serves 8. Per serving: 160 calories, 11g carbs, 2g protein, 13g fat, no cholesterol.

Happy Cinco de Mayo!
