With Sunday’s games coming up and with all the football party food just asking to be consumed, it’s nice to lighten up a few things where calories are concerned, right?  I have a great guacamole recipe for you that is SO tasty and includes Greek Yogurt to lighten up the calories.


After testing out this recipe with the kids yesterday, it’s sure to make a second appearance on my appetizer table this Sunday.  Here’s what you need for success……..{full recipe below}

Slice up two medium avocados and scoop them into a bowl.


Add one small chopped red onion…….or have your kid do it, like me.



Chop up around 10 grape tomatoes and add to the bowl.


Squeeze in two teaspoons of lime, 1/2 tsp Cumin, and salt to taste.



Measure out 3/4 cup of plain nonfat, Chobani Greek Yogurt.  If you haven’t tried Greek yogurt yet, the consistency of it is much thicker than traditional yogurt.


Mix is all together.  The more you mix, the smoother it becomes so if you like your guacamole on the chunky side, lightly mix.


Now one of the things I love about having my kids help me cook is that they are more apt to try a taste of whatever it is we’re making.  Bryce will try ANY dip, Paige is not as ambitious but since she helped create this guacamole, she tried it and loved it.


Definitely a winner in our house.


To add a little heat, you can add chopped jalapeno to the mix.



Serve it with traditional tortilla chips or some pita chips for a different twist.


What’s your all time favorite appetizer for game day?
