Recipe: Guacamole

recipe: Dips and Sauces

Guacamole is a daily OBSESSION at my house! Avocados are a great source of heart healthy fat, vitamins & fiber. I’m always dip carrots and red peppers in my guac for a filling but healthy snack. This guacamole recipe is a great choice instead of high fat dips and chips when entertaining. Everyone loves the fresh homemade flavor! Nothing goes better with guac than a fresh Margarita! Try my family recipe with less sugar that has just 6 simple ingredients: Sassy Skinny Margarita.

How much is one serving? What is the sodium content of a serving? I'd love to have the answer to these questions until then I will just have to look at this yummyness.

    A serving is approximately 1/2 cup. And there is 296 mg of sodium per serving. Hope that helps!
