Fit Mom Guac with a Secret Ingredient

Shhhh.  I add a super secret ingredient to make this dip super fit!

I always make healthy meals, healthy snacks and even healthy chips and dip. My family and I love guacamole, but it can be very high in fat. Here is a wonderful way to increase the nutritional value and flavor, too! Enjoy!


  • 2 Avocados
  • 3/4 lb. Asparagus (sssshhhh.  Our secret)
  • 2 Tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup Garlic minced
  • 1/2 cup Onion diced
  • 1/2 cup Cilantro minced
  • 1 Tbs. Lime juice
  • 2 serrano peppers (optional: we like it spicy!)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Warm Corn Tortillas
  • Baked Tortilla Chips


  1. Rinse and trim off ends of asparagus. Steam in steamer or in microwave oven. Put in microwave safe bowl with 1 Tbs. water, cover and heat on high for 2-3 minutes until soft, but still bright green (not dark green. Don’t over cook.) Scoop avocado and put in blender with everything except cilantro, which I put in last so it doesn’t get crushed. Blend. Taste if it needs salt or pepper.
  2. As a busy Fit Mom, I buy pre-minced garlic and onion and keep in air tight containers.
  3. I keep frozen asparagus on hand for those busy times when I don’t have time to get fresh. If I get fresh, it’s organic.
  4. The healthiest “chip” option is warm corn tortillas or baked chips. No flour tortillas or fried chips.
  5. At Mexican restaurants, I will automatically ask for steamed corn tortillas to help me from eating a whole basket of fried chips without even noticing! Oops!
  6. Don’t automatically add salt to any foods. Taste if it needs it first.
  7. Ole!
