Quick Fixes for Store-Bought Guacamole

Each of the quick fixes below not only enhances the nutritional profile of already nutrient-dense guacamole, but the hidden veggies add volume without the fat so you can eat even more of this popular dip. Be sure to offer it with smart dipping sticks, such as crunchy celery stalks, carrots, bell peppers, or Spice Boys Corn Chips, page 298. You can also mix in two or more of the boosters below, up to a total of about 1/4 cup booster per 1 cup of store-bought guacamole.

Each of the following quick fixes is for 1 cup of guacamole

- 2 to 4 tablespoons Green Puree (see Make-Ahead Recipe #3)
Combine the Green Puree with store-bought guacamole, mixing until well blended.

- 2 to 4 tablespoons White Bean Puree (see Make-Ahead Recipe #9)
Combine the White Bean Puree with store-bought guacamole, mixing until well blended.

- 1 to 2 tablespoons oat bran
Combine the oat bran with store-bought guacamole, mixing until well blended. Because of the added texture, this quick fix will go over better if something crunchy, like chopped red onion, is also added in as a distraction.
