Avocado Dip

Creamy and satisfying Avocados are a wonderful addition to many meals. They are also a super food for the expectant mommy with one avocado containing almost 30% of your daily folic acid requirements. There is some fat in these fruits, but not to worry it’s the good kind!

1 avocado
1 TBSP mayo or whipped dressing
1 TBSP tomato paste
1/2 TSP lime juice
1/4 TSP ground black pepper
1/4 TSP cayenne pepper (optional)

Mash all ingredients together to form a smooth spread. Use as a dip for crackers or pita, or on Mexican food. I like to saute black beans and mushrooms in butter, garlic powder, paprika and chili powder then put them in a tortilla shell with some of this dip and some cheese – easy veggie taco!
