    Our Camrose PCN Dietitian has picked some great recipes for you to try over the month of March!

    The first choice is:

    Lightened-Up Guacamole and Chips

    This recipe was an instant hit with the tasting panel for its great flavor, and it has less fat than commercial guacamole and chips. Kids love it.


    2  ripe avocados, peeled and mashed 2 
    1  tomato, chopped (optional) 1 
    1  clove garlic, minced (or 1⁄2 tsp / 2 mL garlic powder) 1 
    1/2 cup fat-free plain yogurt 125 mL
    1/3 cup tomato salsa (mild, medium or hot) 75 mL
    2 tbsp chopped green onion (optional) 25 mL
    2 tsp freshly squeezed lemon juice 10 mL
    1 tsp ground cumin (or to taste) 5 mL
    1 tsp chili powder (or to taste) 5 mL
    8 to 10 10-inch (25 cm) multigrain or whole wheat tortillas 8 to 10

    Cooking time: 10 to 15 minutes per batch of tortillas
    Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C)


    Step 1
    In a large bowl, combine avocados, tomato (if using), garlic, yogurt, salsa, green onion (if using), lemon juice, cumin and chili powder.

    Step 2
    In batches, place tortillas directly on the middle rack of preheated oven and toast, turning once, for 10 to 15 minutes or until golden brown and starting to crisp (check periodically to make sure they are not getting too brown). Let cool on a wire rack, then break into dipping-size pieces.

    Step 3
    Serve guacamole in a dish, surrounded by toasted tortilla chips.
