Recipe used with permission from Dr. La Puma’s REFUEL: A 24 Day Eating Plan to Shed Fat, Boost Testosterone and Pump Up Strength and Stamina (Crown/Harmony 2014), 

Preparation Time:  10 minutes
Cooking Time:  0 minutes
Servings  4
Yield:  about 1 cup
Calories per serving: 64


1 large ripe avocado, Haas preferred, peeled, seeded and diced
3 tablespoons good-quality salsa, preferably hot or medium hot
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro


1. Combine the avocado, salsa, and garlic salt in a medium bowl.

2. Use a fork to mash to desired consistency. Stir in or top with the cilantro.

3. Serve with vegetable dippers and/or tortilla chips.

Serve immediately with fresh vegetable dippers and/or baked tortilla chips.

The guacamole will last up to three days in the fridge. Sprinkle the surface with lemon or lime juice to prevent browning. In a pinch, press plastic wrap onto the guacamole surface to exclude air; because the guac is not heated, the plastic is okay.

Onion salt may replace the garlic salt and chopped green onion may replace the cilantro.
