garbanzo guacamole

a recipe by
Joanne Hendriksen

This is a lower-fat version of the traditional guacamole. Because of the small amount of avocado used, however, it contains some fat. To reduce the amount of fat, eliminate the avocado. The recipe will still be delicious. Serve with oil-free tortilla chips (baked) or fresh vegetables.
