Guacamole is a fantastic source of heart healthy (unsaturated) fat. Use it as a dip for vegetables or quesadillas, or as a spread on a sandwich or toast. Bought too many avocados? Try adding them to a smoothie for a delicious, smooth texture.
Avocados, Haas - 3, ripe Lime juice - 3 Tablespoons Garlic, minced - 1-2 teaspoons Onion, minced - 1 Tablespoon Ground cumin - 1/4 teaspoon Salt - 1/4 teaspoon Pepper - 1/4 teaspoon Cilantro, chopped - 1-2 Tablespoons Hot sauce - to taste
Pit the avocados: cut in half lengthwise until you reach the pit. Keep the knife still and turn the avocado with your free hand. When you’ve sliced all around the pit, twist the avocado halves in opposite directions to open the avocado.
Remove the pit with a spoon and scoop the avocado flesh into a bowl. Mash with a fork until mostly smooth.
Add the remaining ingredients and mix.
