Recipe: Homemade Guacamole with Baked Tortilla Chips


Good news: Guacamole is a ridiculously nutritious food! Avocado is packed with heart-healthy Omega-3 Fatty Acids (those are the good kind!). Tomatoes contain phytochemicals including Lyocopene which has been shown to have antioxidant effects that may prevent certain types of Cancer. Jalapeños contain a compound called Capsaicin (Cap-Say-Sin), another healthy antioxidant that contributes to the spiciness of the pepper. There is basically no reason to avoid this food when attempting to eat a healthier, well-balanced diet!
