This guacamole recipe is a great way to incorporate more greens and nutrients into the diet in the up coming colder weather. This would be a wonderful holiday party dish served with tortilla chips, and kale is in season and can be found at your local winter farmers’ market right now.
3 cups chopped kale
4 ripe avocados
1/2 red onion chopped
1/2 jalapeño deseeded and chopped into small pieces
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
Juice of two limes
Salt and pepper to taste
Wash and massage the kale and then chop 3 cups.
Cut the avocados in half from stem to base and remove the seed by tapping with a knife. An easy way to get the avocado out is to slide a spoon between the skin and flesh.
Add the kale, avocados, chopped red onion, jalapeño, cilantro and lime juice to a food processor and pulse until smooth, if you want a chunkier dip you can also just mash with a potato masher or fork to your desired consistency.
Remove from the food processor and add to a bowl.
Mix in salt and pepper and any other desired spices.
Enjoy with tortilla chips!
