Tortilla chips are often paired with fresh guacamole. This amazing dip is primarily made of avocados, which offers a wide range of health benefits. Did you know that avocados contain about 20 different vitamins and minerals that help support bone, heart, and brain health? Homemade guacamole is a great alternative to other cheese-based chip dips.

If you are looking for a nutritious dip option, try this homemade guacamole recipe: 

  • 3 avocados peeled, pitted, and mashed
