That’s right – we are talking Guacamole! It doesn’t have to be served up with just chips, we use its green goodness with all kinds of veggies, too! A great dinner can be had with a bowl of guac, a platter of veggies and some romaine lettuce leaves for dipping, along with some warm corn tortillas. Make a double or triple batch to stuff into a pita for lunch tomorrow. Make an appetizer to take to the game by stuffing the green goodness into brightly-colored baby peppers. The uses for this avocado yumminess are endless.
And what’s not to love about the bright herb-ey flavor of cilantro? Cilantro is very low in calories and contains no cholesterol.
