I picked up this Reduced Guilt Chunky Guacamole at Trader Joe’s after hearing that it was pretty good. I checked out the nutrition label and was duly impressed, so I made sure to bring it home with me to try out. Guacamole is typically higher in fat and calories when made the regular way – but Trader Joe’s found a way to make it a friendly food by incorporating the dish with greek yogurt.
Trader Joe’s really does impress me with some of the items they come out with – needless to say, this is one of them. I can’t say I’m a huge guacamole fan, but this particular guacamole easily became my favorite (I don’t love avocados). I was incorporating this into my nachos, chicken burgers, or plain right alongside some tortillas/crackers. It’s a smooth and creamy guacamole which is packed with flavor. There are smaller chunks of vegetables (and even pieces of avocado if you’re lucky) running through the guacamole with a cilantro, lime flavor in the background. I don’t find it to be spicy even though the label does state there are jalapeno’s in the dish. It’s creamier than your average guacamole, which I feel is to be expected because there is Greek yogurt in the dish.
Amazingly, a 2 tablespoon serving is only 1 points plus values! Definitely worth a shot if you’re even remotely a guacamole fan OR just living life on the edge!
