Guacamole with White Beans

Reduce the fat and pack in a little extra protein by replacing part of the avocado in your favorite guacamole recipe with beans. The mild flavor and creamy texture of white beans like great northern or navy beans make them a good companion to avocados in this classic summer dip.

1 15-ounce can white beans, drained and rinsed

1 ripe avocado

1 teaspoon minced garlic

½ teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon lime juice

½ teaspoon cumin

½ teaspoon chili powder

Optional: chopped fresh cilantro

Blend all of the ingredients in a food processor to whatever texture you prefer – smooth, or slightly chunky. Taste and adjust seasonings. Serve with tortilla chips for an appetizer or on top of a baked potato for a light summer meal.
