Guilt Free Guacamole ( Asparagus )

Guilt Free Guacamole ( Asparagus ) created by Chris from Kansas

I could eat tons of this, and I do. You can also use canned asparagus, but this is amazing with the fresh (and yes, more expensive) stuff.

    Took this appetizer to a neighbor's cookout. I advised the group that I found this new recipe when looking for an appetizer using fresh asparagus. I followed the recipe and reviews, adding the lime juice and processing the mixture into small chucks and served it with Stacy's pita chips. The vote was a NO for liking it and the leftover was pitched down the drain! Guess we Texans prefer our avocado guacamole!

    I thought this was very tasty. With the lime juice and salt added, it did really have a taste similar to guac. Mine didn't turn out anything like the picture either, but that probably has more to do with the asparagus (I was using small ones) and my lack of cooking skills. :D Still tasty!

    This doesn't taste a lot like regular guacamole, but it is still very good and definitely close enough to satisfy the craving. I added lime juice and used onions instead of scallions because I didn't have any. Will definitely make again for a no-fat version of guacamole.

    I must've missed something. This is just OK -- it tastes like asparagus blended with salsa, not guacamole at all, to me. If I did it over again, I would use the thickest salsa I could find instead of the watery pico de gallo-style I used. And chop the asparagus into smaller pieces before processing, because I over-processed it trying to get it down to uniform pieces. It came out too smooth and watery and soupy and looks nothing like the pic!
