Weight Watchers Guacamole
I admit it... I hate Guacamole I would much rather have salsa on my plate. The only reason that I make it is because my husband loves it and likes to have some whenever I make Mexican food.
So on my quest of getting both my Husband and myself back to your "ideal weight" I decided that I would trying making him some homemade Guacamole. I hate buying processed foods or anything that has additives. I really try to avoid buying anything that could be made at home. My husband told me that this is the best guacamole he has ever had, therefore anytime I made Mexican food, I will always use this recipe to go with it. I hope you all enjoy!
Recipe from the Weight Watchers Cookbook.
