We slimmed down this Mexican favorite by replacing some of the avocado with low-in-fat, high-in-fiber white beans.
1 medium avocado, Haas, peeled and pitted
15 oz canned white beans, small, drained and rinsed
1 Tbsp fresh lime juice
1 medium tomato(es), diced
2 Tbsp cilantro, fresh, chopped
1/8 tsp table salt, or to taste
1/8 tsp black pepper, or to taste
8 oz baked low-fat tortilla chips
Combine avocado, beans and lime juice in a food processor; process until blended and smooth. If you don't have a food processor, mash ingredients together with a fork.
Transfer mixture to a medium bowl and fold in tomato and cilantro. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve guacamole with baked chips on the side. Yields about 1/4 cup of guacamole and 1 ounce of baked chips per serving.
