My mother-in-law is Hispanic, and my husband grew up on some AMAZING homemade Mexican food (you still have so much to teach me, Julia!). Mexican food is, of course, my husband’s favorite type of food… can you blame him? So, I experiment and create several different healthy and savory Mexican dishes just because I love my man.
Guacamole is definitely a favorite here at the No Diets Allowed household ESPECIALLY during football season. Roll Tide! I love my quick, 3 ingredient Simple Guacamole. However, this past Saturday I wanted some creamier with crispy and juicy vegetables. AND this Creamy Guacamole was born. This will definitely become a regular dish!
- 2 large ripe avocados mashed
- 1/2 cup Greek plain yogurt
- 1 green bell pepper coarsely chopped
- 1/4 cup sweet onion coarsely chopped
- 1/4 cup cilantro coarsely chopped
- 1 Tbs lime juice
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp pepper
- 2 large Roma tomatoes diced
In a medium-sized bowl, combine all ingredients EXCEPT for tomatoes. Stir well until creamy.
Fold in diced tomatoes. Chill for at least 2 hours.
Serve with your favorite chips! I LOVE Food Should Taste Good Multigrain chips.
If you love dips and chips, try out my Healthy 7 Layer Dip and my Fresh Sweet Corn Salsa.
I love guacamole. My father in law works for Mission Avocados and they have a great recipe, but this one looks like it might be good too!
Thanks, Jesseca! Do you get hooked up with lots of avocados? That would be a dream come true for me.
I really need to get on the greek yogurt train. This guac looks fabulous!
Thanks, Amber! Greek plain yogurt is the best substitute for sour cream. Their taste and textures are incredibly similar.
