As a dietitian, home cook, and enthusiast of all-things-delicious, I'm often asked, "so what do YOU eat?" Here's a blog to answer that very question! My hope is that you'll find (even just a little) inspiration from some of my favorite recipes, restaurants, party-ideas and food musings for your own happy, healthy, food-loving lifestyle.

Chipotle Tomatillo Guacamole

Happy Super Bowl Sunday! This smokey, spicy guacamole is the perfect addition to your Super Bowl spread. The tomatillo gives this dip a citrusy crunch, while chipotle chilis add smokey flavor. The chilis in adobo add sodium to this dip, so don't add any additional salt--with all the flavor of the chilis and sauce, you won't need it! Serve with whole grain tortilla chips (check the ingredients label for "whole corn") and some veggies for dipping.

The Nutrition Rundown: Avocados are full of healthy, mono- and poly-unsaturated fats and vitamins that make them an anti-inflammatory food. Because of all this healthy fat, they are high in calories; using tomatillos and chili peppers in this guacamole cuts back on the calories per dip for any calorie-conscious Super Bowl party goers!

Chipotle Tomatillo Guacamole
Serves 8-10
Ingredients
1 large avocado (or 2 small)
1 can (7oz) Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce (found in the Mexican grocery aisle) 
2 Tomatillos
Black pepper
Juice of 1 lime
1/4 cup chopped cilantro (optional)

Directions
  1. Remove skin and pit of avocado(s). Dice into medium bowl. 
  2. Take chilis from can. There will be sauce on the chilis, but you may discard the excess sauce. Chop chilis and place in bowl with avocado. Remove skins of tomatillo, dice into bowl. 
  3. Add pepper and lime juice. Garnish with cilantro if using and serve!
