I made this guacamole to impress my future Latino/Italian in-laws. (It worked!) It's so easy to make, yet the tastes are complex and packs a fresh punch - whether or not you make it for a football party or for a party, this will disappear in minutes! Guacamole from stores and restaurants haven't tasted the same since!

Great healthy option for a potluck. Without the olives it's completely fat free! You can add jalepenos for an extra kick. Add avacado or turkey chili to make it more filling for a meal (will add fat).

MAC 'N' CHEESE
Very Good 4.2/5
(17 ratings)

Although this dish is lower in fat due to the skim milk and reduced-fat cheese, you’ll love it so much, you may never resort to the fluorescent-orange boxed stuff again
