With all the sweepstakes and contest information I posted from Haas Avocados, I thought it would be fun to make some guacamole, with Haas avocados of course! This is a creamy guacamole that I use in place of mayo or mustard for sandwiches. If you want to cut down on your sodium intake, or just want to eat a little healthier, this is the perfect way to do it. Avocados are a great health benefit because they are known to reduce high blood pressure and fight heart disease! Plus, it’s very, very good!
Creamy, Dreamy Guacamole!
1/4 cup chopped Onion
1/2 cup Sour Cream
2 Roma Tomatoes
Juice from 1/2 of a Lime
1/4 teaspoon Garlic Powder
Cut and scoop the avocado out of the peel.
Smash the avocado with a fork or a potato masher.
Slice the roma in half.
Slice the halves into quarters.
Chop the quarters into pieces.
Add the sour cream, and tomatoes to the avocado. Mix well. Cut a slice off of the onion.
Cut the onion in to slices, then turn and chop the other way.
Roll the lime between the cutting board and the heel of your hand. This makes it easier to squeeze the juice out. Cut the lime in half.
Squeeze the lime in to the avocado. Mix well.
Add garlic powder and a pinch of salt. Mix well.
Serve with chips,
or put on a sandwich! Delicious!!
