    Extra garlic for me! Also makes a great topping for a boca burger or as a spread for a sandwich. - 8/24/10

    Cannellini beans are white kidney beans. They are lower in fat and calories than the garbanzo beans (chick peas) that are normally used to make hummus. Adding spinach to the mix is a really great idea, too. - 11/23/10

    Tried this using garbanzo beans (I'm not sure what cannellini beans are), adding a half cup of plain yogurt, and using two whole small avocaodes, and thought it was great, such a pretty color. Next time I'm going to add a cup or so of chopped tomatoes, or pico de gallo... maybe today! - 8/5/10

    This is really good. My son liked it even better when I added a couple of Jalapeņo peppers to it. I've made it twice.. liked it even more the 2nd time. You would never know there is Spinach in this.It's so easy to make,which is good, I'll make this often! Husband gives 5 stars too! - 8/10/10

    We really liked this. I added a bit of extra garlic, and I'm using this as a salad dressing. It works well in rolled up in thin slices of roast beef, too. - 6/28/10

    My husband does not like hummus (and hates all beans), but loves guacamole. I used a whole avocado and added some Jalapeņo peppers to this recipe and he loved it. I didn't tell him there was beans in it until after he said he liked it; but even after my confession, he still continued snacking on it. - 7/4/11

    I added .5 cup milk to make it easier on my blender, and a whole avocado, just because, and it was still a nice texture. We're having it as a cooling side to a spicy dish tonight, but might add spice and/or veg in the future, &mash the avocado and beans before blending. Thank you! - 7/13/10

    This was amazing. I used a whole avocado and the texture was perfect. I used it to dip my carrots in but I am sure I will be using it for a bunch of things! Hubby put it on his salad for a dressing. He loved it! - 12/9/12

    This was yummy. Not really like guacamole but it was a recipe that we will keep in the rotation and when the tomatoes are back in season will probably add some in. I used a whole small avocado. - 11/26/12

    This is great. I do mean great. What a lot of flavors coming together and then with the veggies to dip in. I haven't figured out the calories but I surely at least 1/6 of the bowl. Love it. Will keep it on hand always. For spreads, etc. Could add with olive oil and make a salad dressing. - 1/23/11

    My DW and I served this at a small get together this weekend. None, NONE of our guests had the slightest clue they were eating something wholesome and nutritious - as well as delicious. This just became a family favorite. Will add some chopped tomato as garnish next time. - 11/29/10

  • I love guacamole so this recipe caught my eye as a good one to try. Was not a fan, not sure what exactly turned me off but I didn't care for this, it was really salty as well. Perhaps the canned beans were to blame? - 12/16/10

    Sounds good. I'm going to guess its about 1/3 cup per serving because it will wind up near the volume of the beans + avocado. I hope me not rating it till I try it won't pull down the overall rating... - 10/17/10
