IntroductionA lower calorie take on traditional guacamole. All the flavor and healthy aspects of the traditional with more veggies to cut the calories and up the nutrients.
I received complements many complements from my in-laws. It was a great superbowl dip for chips and veggies. A lower calorie take on traditional guacamole. All the flavor and healthy aspects of the traditional with more veggies to cut the calories and up the nutrients.

*Avocado, whole, medium 1 serving = 1 medium whole avocado, 3 serving
Red Ripe Tomatoes, 3 Italian tomato
*Peppers, sweet, red, fresh, 1 cup, chopped
Onions, raw, .5 small
Serrano Peppers, 3 pepper
Cucumber (peeled), .5 large (8-1/4" long)
Lime Juice, 2 lime yields
Shallots, 2 tbsp chopped
Cilantro, raw, 2 tbsp
Mushrooms, fresh, 1 cup, pieces or slices
black pepper to taste (I used probably 1-2 tsp)
garlic pepper to taste (I used about 1/3 tsp)
salt (I used a pinch)
cumin (I used a dash or two)
A tip for storing leftovers- place the leftovers in a air tight container, then cover with paper towel folded and placed over the top so there are no air pockets. Then soak paper towel with lime or lemon juice and cover. The acidic nature of the juice keeps the avocado from browning (also a good trick for other fruits and veggies that brown easily i.e. apples). (There is no set amount of juice to use, I do it so the paper towel is soaked enough that it will keep the avocado moist).
Next time, to suit my preferences, I will add a little more kick with more Serrano pepper or spices.
