Green Giant

Posted on

My Super Bowl celebrations this year were very low key, so I decided to spice things up with a yummy guacamole recipe from one of my favorite foodie bloggers Jess over at Forgiving Martha!

I ate enough of the green stuff to last me a lifetime. And that was just the appetizer. I know the Giants were playing, but I definitely felt like a 250 lb linebacker after eating my fair share of guacamole.

Healthy Guacamole Tostadas

*serves 6-8

  • 4 ripe avocados
  • 1/2 red onion, small diced
  • 2 small zucchini, rinsed and peeled 
  • 3 limes
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and diced
  • 1 Roma tomato, seeds removed, finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 24 round tortilla chips
  • cilantro, for garnish

  1. Prepare zucchini by removing both ends and roughly chop.  Add to a food processor and process until smooth.
  2. Halve the avocado and remove pit. Simply place the avocado in a bowl and mash it gently with a fork. Mix in the zucchini and remaining ingredients.
  3. Just before serving, scoop a generous tablespoon of guacamole onto each chip, and top with a cilantro leaf. Arrange on a platter and serve.
