Creamy Guacamole


I love guacamole and usually stick to a traditional and simple version.  I decided to mix it up a little when I saw a recipe for guacamole made richer and creamier with the addition of sour cream.  I substituted Greek yogurt for the sour cream and added my usual ingredients of lime, garlic, cilantro, crushed red pepper flakes and salt.  The result was a smoother guacamole with a subtle hint of creaminess.  This version will go so well with tacos.


1/2 an avocado, mashed
1 clove garlic, finely chopped or grated with a microplane
2 Tbsps Greek yogurt
Juice of 1/2 lime
Pinch of sea salt
Pinch of red pepper flakes
Chopped cilantro

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well until everything is combined.  Taste and adjust seasonings according to your taste.
