(58 calories | 3 3 3 myWW *SmartPoints value per serving)
I didn't grow up eating Mexican food, so was introduced to guacamole relatively late in life. Now, I seem to be trying to make up for lost time. I can't get enough of this luscious mashed avocado dip.
Did you know that guacamole dates back to the Aztecs, where it was revered for its high vitamin and fat content. How did they know?
While already prepared guacamole is pretty good in a pinch. Homemade is so much better.
Here's an easy, healthy and delicious Weight Watchers Homemade Guacamole recipe I think you're going to love.
Skinny on Weight Watchers Homemade Guacamole
You'll want to use Hass avocados, the dark greenish brown kind with the rough, bumpy skin to make your guacamole.
The key to delicious guacamole is using perfectly ripe avocados.
Check for ripeness by gently pressing the avocado with your thumb.
If there is no give, the avocado is not ripe enough. If there is a little give, the avocado is ripe and perfect for your guacamole. If there is a lot of give and it squished beneath your thumb, the avocado is too ripe and probably turning brown inside, so leave it where you found it.

You might call this cheater's guacamole, but it's wonderful in a pinch, especially if you have fresh salsa in the fridge. Mash together the flesh of 1 ripe avocado and ¼ cup well-drained salsa until well combined and still a little chunky.
