Asparagus Guacamole Recipe

To trim down traditional guacamole, I experimented with asparagus instead. My husband and our three hungry sons say this chunky low-fat version is as tasty as the original. I love the guilt-free dipping. —Judi Hammer of Litilz, Pennsylvania

"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!!!!"
