Are we ready to rumble yet? Jess here, and since we’re closing in on the big kickoff, I figured it was high time that we tackle a simple and healthy appetizer for your Super Bowl festivities with this edition of The Perfect Bite.

When game time rolls around I make sure there is snack food galore. Of course, it’s always great to offer guests some healthy options, and this guacamole has always been a favorite of mine. While it may look like traditional guac, it’s actually kicked up a notch in the health-department with the addition of zucchini. Serve on round tortilla chips as a tostada, or (if you’re still abiding by your New Year’s resolutions), use whole grain chips or bell pepper strips to dip! Keep reading for the recipe.

Healthy Guacamole Tostadas

*serves 6-8

  • 4 ripe avocados
  • 1/2 red onion, small diced
  • 2 small zucchini, rinsed and peeled 
  • 3 limes
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and diced
  • 1 Roma tomato, seeds removed, finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 24 round tortilla chips
  • cilantro, for garnish

  1. Prepare zucchini by removing both ends and roughly chop.  Add to a food processor and process until smooth.
  2. Halve the avocado and remove pit. Simply place the avocado in a bowl and mash it gently with a fork. Mix in the zucchini and remaining ingredients.
  3. Just before serving, scoop a generous tablespoon of guacamole onto each chip, and top with a cilantro leaf. Arrange on a platter and serve.

    Was wondering what makes this “healthy?” It’s not as if guacamole is an unhealthy dish in the first place. Avocados are very good for the body to begin with. Throwing a zucchini in does nothing to improve upon this classic favorite. Some things are just perfect the way they are.

    I make guacamole using a recipe very similar to this one only I have never added zucchini. I tried this and it’s very good! Please don’t peel the zucchini — the most nutritious part of the zucchini is the skin! Also, this is a healthier recipe because it does not use the usual mayo, sour cream, or oil. I’m making this again because I like the addition of the zucchini — I have lots of them in my garden. I will, however, add a little fresh garlic next time. Thanks for an interesting and delicious version of guacamole!
