 The Awesome Avocado

You don’t have to avoid avocados, even though they have a high fat content. They actually contain “good” unsaturated fats that do not raise blood cholesterol. Dietary Guideline Reports suggest that moderate amounts of foods like avocados can help keep blood cholesterol down and offer protection against heart disease. Avocados are also very high in folic acid and potassium and a good source of iron and vitamins A and C.

4 Avocados

2 Romano Tomatoes

1/2 medium size red onion

1 Tablespoon sour cream (optional)

1/8 teaspoon salt

1 habinero or jalapeno pepper (check temp before adding entire pepper.

1/4 teaspoon lemon

In a glass bowl, lightly mash avocados.  Dice onion, tomatoes, and pepper and add to avocados and gently stir.  All the remaining ingredients.  Cover and chill for at least one hour to allow the flavors to marinade together.  Serve with your favorite tortilla chips and enjoy!
