This twist on the Mexican staple encompasses everything that an appetizer should be – easy, healthy and delicious. Really, what more could you ask for?
We took this over to a friends house (Thanks Taster for making, food styling and photographing!) and it was a very fun change from the typical guac and tortilla chips. We served it alongside some whole-grain bread that was toasted, carrots and radishes. The only downside? Guac just never tastes as good the day after – all the more reason to eat it up right away!
