Guiltless Guacamole

I got this recipe from one of my friends here in Albany.  She made it for a girl's night and it was sooo good!  I knew I had to have the recipe.  The beans give some added protein and fiber.  That way you can feel a little better when you can't stop eating it!

Guiltless Guacamole

1 can white kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 Tbs. lime juice or more for taste
1 jalapeno chile, seeded
1/2 cup fresh cilantro
1/4 cup sweet onion, chopped
2 ripe avacados, halved and pitted
2 plum tomatoes, diced

In blender or food processor, puree beans and 1 tsp. lime juice until smooth.  Transfer to medium sized bowl.  Place jalapeno, cilantro, onion and 1/2 tsp. salt in blender or food processor.  Pulse until juicy and thick.  With spoon, scoop avacado from peel into bowl with beans.  Mash with fork until blended but still a bit chunky.  Add diced tomatoes and onion mixture to avacado/bean mixture and stir.  Stir in additional lime juice to taste.  Serve with baked tortilla chips.
