Guiltless Guacamole
From Good Housekeeping

Try this version, made with creamy mashed white beans and a single avocado. Calories are reduced by 40 percent!

Prep Time: 15 min
Yields: 3 cups


1 can(s) (15 to 19 ounces) white kidney beans (cannellini), drained and rinsed
1 tablespoon(s) (or to taste) lime juice
1 jalapeņo chile , seeded
1/2 cup(s) loosely packed fresh cilantro leaves
1/4 cup(s) coarsely chopped sweet onion (such as Vidalia or Maui)
1 ripe avocado, halved and pitted
2 plum tomatoes
Baked tortilla chips or fresh-cut vegetables


In food processor with knife blade attached, puree beans and 1 tablespoon lime juice until smooth. Transfer to medium bowl.
In same processor, place jalapeņo, cilantro, onion, and 1/2 teaspoon salt; pulse until juicy and thick.
With spoon, scoop avocado from peel into bowl with beans; mash with fork until mixture is blended, with some chunks remaining.
Cut each tomato crosswise in half. Squeeze halves to remove seeds and juice. Coarsely chop tomatoes. Stir tomato-and-onion mixture into avocado mixture until blended. If you prefer a little more zip, stir in additional lime juice to taste.

Guacamole is best served as soon as it's made, but you can also cover and refrigerate up to 1 hour. Serve with chips or vegetables.
