Avocado is a unique fruit in that many fruits consist mainly of carbohydrates, but the avocado is low in carbohydrates and high in healthy fats. Avocados are nutrition powerhouses containing a variety of nutrients, including 20 different vitamins and minerals.
1 Large Tomato, finely diced
3 Ripe Avocados, pitted and mashed in a bowl – save one pit
Juice of 1 Lime
1 Small Red Onion, finely chopped
1 Small Red or Green Chili Pepper, deseeded and finely chopped (optional)
Stir tomato, lime juice, red onion and chili pepper if using, into the bowl of mashed avocado.
Place the saved avocado pit in the middle of the guacamole, this helps to keep it from turning brown due to oxidization.
Cover with cling wrap and refrigerate until ready to serve.
