I decided to share my homemade guacamole recipe today. Guacamole is one of those things you can customize to you taste. Basically the only standard is avocado.
1 medium Avocado
2 tablespoons salsa (medium or hot I prefer but choose what you like)
1 tablespoon sour cream ( can be regular or light )
Garlic to taste (This can be fresh pureed or powdered. A little can go a long way)
1 teaspoon pepper (red or black)
1/2 teaspoon salt
Optional : cilantro, onion, fresh tomato or tomato paste
Make it your own.
I generally can easily mix by hand by mashing the avocado by hand in a bowl with a spoon and then mixing in the salsa, sour cream and seasoning items. Blend it well. I generally eat dips with saltine crackers instead of chips. I find them more filling and I crave eating less of them.
Overall the guacamole will range between 300 and 400 calories depending on the size of the avocado and if more sour cream is used. That is for the full recipe. Saltines are usually about 10 calories per cracker.
So generally, if you eat this for a meal it will be around 400-450 calories for the guacamole and 10-12 crackers.
How do you eat your guacamole? Do you even like it?
Keep it going,
