Asparagus 'guacamole'

    25 min

    It looks like guacamole but there are no avocados in sight in this low fat dip! Adjust the amount of jalapeno chilli and hot pepper sauce to suit your taste.

    I have been using recipes from this website for many years and find most of them fantastic. I have never reviewed any recipes before but found I had to with this one. I am on weight watchers and made this for Easter. With the use of the asaparagus it is almost point free. It is great, my family was unable to tell that it was asparagus and loved it. Will definately being making this again. Thanks Cheryl.  -  24 Apr 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Made the recipe because I had so much fresh asparagus out of the garden and I had the rest of ingredients. Wow! Love it! Nice fresh flavor and my picky men liked it! They like avocado guacamole so I figured I was safe calling it a veggie dip cause they will not eat asparagus. I would never have thought to do this with asparagus. Also, the neat thing about this recipe, you can work with what you have on hand and even add sourcream to make it richer if you like. Thanks for sharing the recipe!  -  30 Apr 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    GREAT recipe for making something low-fat and very delicious. I do recommend using a lot more lime juice, I use one or two whole fresh squeezed limes. Also, red onion gives it more flavor and kick than green, but that's just personal preference. Thanks for sharing this, love it!  -  13 May 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
