Hearts of Palm Guacamole

"This was inspired by two other wonderful hearts of palm recipes: recipe#170418 and recipe#236961. It's great smooth and creamy or chunky with the tomatoes and onion added. If you like heat add a minced jalapeno or cayenne pepper. It tastes close to regular guacamole but is healthier. Hearts of palm are full of nutrients and low calorie."

    As my husband proclaimed,"This is a 10 star", I worried that I might have to take him to the hospital. He had eaten 2/3 of the bowl so essentially two full avocados! Yikes! I used all of the ingredients - including the optional ones - with lots of cumin and chopped jalapenos. While I followed the ingredients exactly I did not follow the instructions; I prefer an overall chunky texture so didn't use a blender to puree it, and think hearts of palm have more texture than flavor so left them in large slivered pieces. Next time I'll need to ration this like green gold because it's fantastic - essentially a superb guacamole recipe with the unique addition of the hearts of palm.

    This was really good. Though we love hearts of palm, I might cut back on the amount next time, along with the pepper. It's different, but really quite nice.
