So take the goodness of guacamole: healthy things like avocados and limes and onions and cilantro. What a healthful treat! Cool and creamy, full of "good" fats and maybe packed with some veggies.
Ok that's great and all (and really I mean that. Guac is GREAT) but let's add more goodness. Like cream cheese. And goat cheese. Oh goat cheese, how I adore you.
And we shall call it "Chubby Guac." Get it? Because we fattened it up with various cheeses. It's chubby now. I know, my cleverness surprises even me. I'm a wordsmith. One of the greats.
I struggle to form coherent sentences on a daily basis and I re-write tweets more often than I care to admit. A wordsmith I am not.
But I digress. There's chubby guac to be discussed. You will find yourself devouring this dip. Especially if you're a goat cheese fan. Oh man. It's got the distinctive goat cheese tang with the cool creamy blandness (and I say "bland" lovingly) of avocado. And a punch of lime because duh. Chubby health food.
Here's the recipe!
Lime Goat Cheese Guacamole AKA "Chubby Guac"
- 4 oz goat cheese, at room temperature
- 6 oz cream cheese, at room temperature
- 3 avocados
- zest of one lime
- heaping 1/2 tsp cumin

2. With the mixer on low, add the avocados and turn the mixer back to medium high. mix another 1-2 minutes until the avocados are fully mashed and the mixture because pale green and light and fluffy.
