When most people think of guacamole, they picture a giant tub of greenish goo served on Super Bowl Sunday next to other unhealthy appetizers like stuffed mushrooms and cocktail weenies. But guacamole isn’t just for dipping your chips (although it’s certainly good for that!). You can use it on your baked potatoes in lieu of sour cream, spread it on a sandwich in place of mayonnaise, or even use it to top hamburgers and hot dogs. Avocado fruits contain healthy, fibrous fats that help lower bad cholesterol, and they are chock full of nutrients and antioxidants. This recipe makes only four servings; avocados should be eaten in moderation, as they are calorically dense. You (and three friends) won’t have to feel guilty about eating the whole thing!
