Lately Hubbs has been asking for guacamole for a late night snack. Any chance I have to keep my family snacking healthy I take it! So instead of purchasing prepackaged guacamole, I buy avocados in bulk!

Within a few weeks of tries we found the easiest and most simple recipe to be the tastiest! Can’t go wrong with easy, simple, and healthy… You don’t even have to tell your family that guacamole is a bunch of veggies, it certainly doesn’t taste like it.

Original Recipe: Eating Well

Easy, Healthy Homemade Guacamole

TIPS
  • Usually this is eaten right away in our house.  After mixing it all together, we let it chill for 10-15 minutes before eating.
  • We dip in Tostito’s Lime flavored tortilla chips and use Wegman’s Garlic & Lime salsa.

Perfect snack for a late night that isn’t heavy on the guilt! Packed full of veggies and a that salty crunch of chips — try swapping this in for your snack. Or double and triple the recipe for a perfect, quick party snack.
