Need to whip up an easy, yet healthy, appetizer? This recipe is for you.
Avocados are an excellent source of healthy fats such as omega-3 fatty acids, which are beneficial to your brain and skin. They are also an excellent source of vitamins C, E, K and B-6, as well as folate, magnesium and potassium. Better yet? Homemade guacamole is a winter-friendly dish. Avocados are typically available year-round, thanks to the hard work of growers in Mexico and parts of South America.

3 avocados, peeled, pitted and diced—dicing gives it a chunkier texture
1 lime, juiced
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 large jalapeño, diced (seeds removed)
1/4 cup of fresh cilantro, chopped
1 teaspoon minced garlic
(or garlic powder)
Mix the ingredients together in a bowl (yep, that’s it!) and enjoy with chips or over your favorite tacos or tortilla soup—but do so quickly, because it will go fast!
