Avocados often get a bad rap from low-fat advocates. While about 90% of avocados’ calories are from fat, it is almost all mono-unsaturated good fat. They also have many vitamins and minerals.
Guacamole, eaten in moderation, contains much less saturated fat than mayo, butter, cheese, or sour cream. Whole-grain pita chips make a good vehicle for this delicious appetizer.
I made the basic recipe for the non-spicy aficionados and an optional spicy version for the rest. Ask your friends and family who wants what and apportion the guacamole accordingly.
This is one of those "dip your finger and taste when no one is looking" kind of recipes that almost demands experimentation until it is right.
