Easy Guacamole Dip

I have a confession. I absolutely LOVE a good guacamole dip. There’s really nothing quite like the buttery texture of avocado mixed with the zingy flavor of a lemon and the bold flavors of the cilantro, onion, garlic, and pepper that all meld together to create this absolutely wonderful dish we all know as guacamole. I have recently been on a mission to inspire my husband (who is a very picky eater) to try new things. One of the things I have had great success with is my homemade guacamole dip! He tried it, loved it, and is now addicted. You’re welcome Babe.

If you don’t like avocados this might not appeal to you all that much but if you’re a lover of those little green orbs just as I am, you’re going to be totally psyched about this post! Also, for my Weight Watcher pals, this recipe yields ½ cup of guacamole and comes to 1 Smart Point per tablespoon. Yields 8 tablespoons. Sorry Simply Filling friends, unfortunately the avocado is not on the Power Food list so it will need to be counted. 

I hope you enjoy this recipe and don’t forget to go on over to Instagram and Pinterest and give me a follow there where I post a new and delicious recipe every day.

Looking for a fun and different way to eat this guacamole dip? Spread it over toast for a great breakfast! My Avocado Toast is a favorite of ours and sure to have you coming back for more.
