Great Guacamole

The buttery rich flavor of avocados and the natural health benefits from eating them, make this recipe a “must” to have on hand. Full of vitamin E, potassium, magnesium, fiber and those heart-healthy monounsaturated fats, everything about avocados is great. Hence the name great guacamole.
