I have to say that I LOVE guacamole. Sometimes I crave it like crazy, but I know I can't eat it like crazy. Until now. I made this a tiny bit. I didn't have cilantro and I didn't measure how much lime juice I used. I just squeezed one lime into the mixture. I used a fresh-from-the-garden zucchini - unpeeled and unseeded - I threw in some tomato and jalapenos, and I used a food processor to get it as smooth as I liked.. which was still pretty chunky. I really loved this guacamole! I ate it with chips (baked torilla shell, and Garden of Eatin's jalapeno lime chips), on a grilled-chicken wrap, with grilled lime-pepper chicken, and a deli turkey wrap. YUUU-UM!

This delicious guacamole recipe replaces half the amount of high-calorie avocado in a traditional guacamole recipe with a stealth, low-calorie vegetable—zucchini—to cut 100 calories and 6 grams of fat so we can eat more guacamole with fewer calories. We use the microwave to cook the zucchini until it’s very tender, but you can steam it on the stovetop if you prefer.

This recipe uses 1 avocado and 1 zucchini making it a lower-calorie guacamole. I peeled the zucchini, chopped it, then microwaved as the recipe directed. Once the zuc is cooked, you just mash in the rest of the ingredients. So easy! We loved the flavor and so did my parents. It does have a little bit different texture and taste than regular guac but I don't think people would notice unless you told them.
