We add lots of fresh vegetables and zippy spices to make this guacamole higher in flavor
and lighter in fat. If you prefer milder guacamole, use just one jalapeno–or none at all.
Serve it with baked tortilla chips or fresh vegetables at your next fiesta.
1 medium avocado, peeled and diced
2 tomatoes, diced
1/2 red bell pepper, seeded and diced
1/2 cucumber, diced
1 red onion, diced
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 jalapeno peppers, seeded, deveined and minced (wear gloves to prevent irritation)
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
In a large bowl, combine the avocado, tomatoes, bell pepper, cucumber, onion, lime
juice, jalapenos, garlic, cilantro, salt and pepper. Serve at once or refrigerate,
covered, up to 2 days.
