Reviews for Asparagus Guacamole
"This is very very good! My boyfriend and I decided that this was the best guacamole we have ever had!Here is a tip to reduce the amount of calories in this already low-cal recipe:We did change the recipe a little.We used about 4 tbspns of FAGE non-fat Greek yogurt instead of the mayo, and used an entire medium tomato instead of 1/3 cup.With these changes we calculated that the calories for the entire 2 cup mixture is about 192 calories. This means that the total calorie count was 60 calories less with these changes.These changes cause each 1/3 cup serving size 32 calories, making the recipe 10 calories less per serving!Yummmmm, guilt-free eating!We will definitely make this again!!!!"
