Secret ingredient for guacamole

Don't forget the guacamole for Super Bowl Sunday. Take your favorite recipe and add a big spoonful of sour cream. It makes the dip even creamier and adds a bit of a tang to it.

The sour cream doesn't make the dip healthier. But if you're using SlimCado avocados in your guacamole, you're working with less fat and fewer calories to begin with.

Tropical Guacamole

2 ripe SlimCado avocados
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
½ cup diced red bell pepper
½ cup diced tomatos
¼ cup thinly sliced green onion
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
½ tsp chopped, fresh thyme
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper
¼ tsp cayenne pepper
¼ cup sour cream

Mash the SlimCados, maintaining its chunky texture. Stir in lemon juice. Fold in remaining ingredients. Store with a piece of plastic wrap against the surface of the guacamole.
