Recipe of the Month!

The simple homemade guacamole in this healthy snack recipe couldn't be easier to whip up! We cut some carbs by stuffing the guacamole in halved mini bell peppers--or use them as guacamole dippers instead of tortilla chips.

Ingredients:½ ripe avocado, ¼ teaspoon garlic powder,1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro, Squeeze of lime juice, Pinch of salt, 2 mini bell peppers, halved lengthwise and seeded

Directions: Mash avocado, garlic powder, cilantro, lime juice and salt in a small bowl with a fork until chunky-smooth. Divide the guacamole among mini pepper halves (about 1 tablespoon each).
