Easy Allergy Free Guacamole
By Shannon • February 21, 2014 • Appetizers
Avocado is on my son’s list of foods that he must eat. He is underweight, so avocados provide a healthy amount of good fat. Guacamole is one of the few foods that I know he’ll eat. Avocados are high in the antioxidants lycopene and beta-carotene, so coupled with the good fat, I am glad that I am giving him something healthy that will help with his condition.
I like smashing up the avocado so that there are still a few large chunks in it, but if you like it smoother, use a masher and then mix it up until creamy and smooth.
This recipe is really easy and tasty. Feel free to spice it up by adding some chile powder or smoky chipotle peppers. This is just a basic recipe, so you can pretty much add in whatever you want, or just eat it as is. You can also use it to top chicken, steak or hamburgers. Yum!
