"Almost Guacamole" Dip

I LOVE Guacamole, but even though avocado is considered a "healthy" fat, it is still high in fat.

Since my family loves asparagus, when I ran across this recipe using asparagus instead of avocado, I had to try it! My husband LOVED it and he doesn't even like guacamole!

The best part is that you can eat all of this you want because it doesn't have the high fat content of regular guacamole.

2 (10.5 oz.) cans of asparagus cuts, drained thoroughly
1 large tomato, seeded and chopped, drained thoroughly (1 cup)
1 medium red onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
2 Tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro (or 1-2 teaspoons dried cilantro)
2 Tablespoons reduced-fat mayonnaise
1 tablespoon lemon or lime juice
approximately 6 drops Tabasco
Dash of pepper
Tortilla chips
Place asparagus in food processor. Cover and blend on medium speed until smooth and creamy.

In medium mixing bowl, add all remaining ingredients except tortilla chips.

Add asparagus and blend until well-combined.

Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours for the flavors to blend.

Serve with tortilla chips. Enjoy!

Hmmm, this is very interesting Mom! I think I might need to sample a little bit of it first, but it sounds like it could be good!
