Here's a great recipe that spotlights what Tony Horton calls "the poor man's butter": the avocados. Guacamole is a great, versatile condiment. It can be a healthy dip for veggies or baked chips, or a delicious sandwich spread to replace fattening mayo with avocados' heart-healthy benefits. If you're storing some for later, make sure you don't skip the lime juice. The acid from the citrus will keep your guac from turning brown.
  • 4 ripe avocados, peeled and pitted
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1 tomato, seeded and diced
  • 1/2 cup sweet white onion, minced
  • 2 chilies, seeded and minced
  • 1/4 cup cilantro leaves, chopped
  • 4 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
  • Hot pepper sauce (to taste)
  • Sea salt (to taste)
  • White pepper (to taste)
Cut avocado in large chunks and mash coarsely in large bowl with fork. Add remaining ingredients and blend gently—leaving some small chunks is fine. Taste and adjust seasoning with more pepper sauce, salt, and pepper if desired. Makes 8 servings.
