The food processor makes quick work of this Easy Guacamole that's rich in heart-healthy monounsaturated fats. We like the heat from leaving the seeds in the jalapeño, but you can seed the pepper for a milder guac. Serve with tortilla chips or crudités.
1 1/2 tablespoons coarsely chopped red onion
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 garlic clove
1/2 small jalapeño pepper
1 ripe peeled avocado
1 tablespoon cilantro leaves
How to Make It
Place first 5 ingredients in a food processor; pulse 5 times or until finely chopped. Add avocado; process until smooth. Sprinkle with cilantro.
My husband and I both loved this recipe. It was easy to make and used just a few ingredients that I usually have on hand. The basic recipe is tasty but not too spicy, so there's room to play with it. I'll use the entire jalepeno and a little more garlic next time. It's something I'd make it for guests. It's a definate keeper.
