Some people avoid avocados because they are higher in calories than other fruit, but they are filled with the good fat, the kind that’s been shown to actually help you lose weight and lower cholesterol levels. Here’s some more information on avocado nutrition from Hass. Avocados are really good for you, but do eat them in moderation.

Lately I’ve been making guacamole with one and eating it as a meal along with some baked blue corn. It’s super simple to make.

Chunky Authentic Guacamole

1 Avocado, cubed
1 T. Chunky salsa
1/2 Lemon juiced
1 tsp. Fresh cilantro, chopped fine
1/2 Serrano chili chopped fine – optional
1 oz. Crumbled Mexican cheese such as Cacique Cotija
Baked tortilla chips for serving

Mix all of the ingredients together in a small bowl, adding the cheese. For a smoother consistency smash with a fork. Serve with tortilla chips.
