I love Mexican food and i find it much healthier when i make  it at home. I make quesadillas, tacos and burritos quite often but of course with lots of variations and try to use healthier alternatives as much as possible without compromising the taste. Fortunately or unfortunately there is no low fat alternative to avocado and i can't think of Mexican food without guacamole!.
yes, avocado has lots of fat!, but its a good kind of fat that tends to lowers cholesterol and despite that avocado is extremely nutritious with lots of fiber, vitamins and minerals in it., so i think its okay to treat yourself once in a while. :)
and...so i  did, I made vegetable quesadillas with guacamole and salsa...yum!
will post the quesadillas recipe in the next post...till then enjoy the tasty guacamole recipe-

  • Ripe Avocados- 2 (peeled, halved and seeded)
  • Onion- 1 tablespoon
