One of my favorite things ever is guacamole. But not just any guacamole. I will rarely order guacamole at a restaurant and I never buy it already prepared. My favorite guacamole in the whole world? Well, my mom makes it. And just the other day, I actually made it myself. It’s so easy, I’m not sure why I never tried it before although I’m sure I thought it just wouldn’t taste the same if I made it.
- 2 ripe Hass avocados
- 2 tbsp. mayonnaise
- 2 tbsp. sour cream
- 1 pack Concord Foods mild guacamole mix (found in the produce section)
- Lemon juice
Peel avocados in a large bowl. Add mayonnaise, sour cream, and guacamole mix. Mash with a fork and mix well to desired consistency. I like my guacamole really creamy so I try not to have any chunks at all.
I calculated this recipe on WeightWatchers.com and based on approximately 12 servings, it would be about 2 points per serving, guesstimating the serving size to be about 2 tablespoons. You could probably save a little bit by using reduced fat or fat free mayonnaise and sour cream.
As for the lemon juice, which was not used to make the guacamole, you will add a few drops to the top of the guacamole and cover with saran wrap when you refrigerate it. This will keep it from turning brown so quickly. Mind you, in my house, it rarely lasts long enough to turn brown.
