EZ Guacamole

This recipe for EZ guacamole comes from registered dietitian Susan Piergeorge, author of Boomer Be Well!

Guacamole is a great dip, salad dressing, or topping for meats, poultry, seafood, or as a topper on potatoes.


1 avocado, washed, peeled, pitted and mashed

Lemon juice (enough to coat avocado to prevent browning—about 1-2 tsp.)

1/4 cup salsa, drained

1/4 tsp. ground cumin, optional


1. Mix avocado and lemon juice.

2. Stir in salsa to taste.

3. Add cumin if desired.

4. Store in covered container and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

Makes 4 servings.

This guacamole works great with these awesome baked Chili Lime Chips (see number 1 in a previous ZIED GUIDE blog post, 7 Light Bites & Tasty Treats). Enjoy!
