Mean Green Guacamole
Originating in Mexico, guacamole is a deliciously healthy snack or appetizer. Guacamole’s star ingredient is the avocado, which is a cool and creamy fruit that meshes perfectly with a bit of heat. When perfectly ripe, the avocado will have a little bit of give when squeezed. Enjoy this hot and spicy Mean Green Guacamole with fresh crudités, or as a replacement to a creamy condiment in your favorite Mexican-inspired dish!
