Black Bean Guacamole

Hi Friends!

If you follow me on Instagram (theleangreenbean), Twitter or Facebook then you may already know what’s coming today! Another dip recipe. Last night my hubby officially declared me the “dip expert”. He says between this dip and the Spicy Feta Dip I made last month,  I have mastered the dip.
So I’ve got that going for me.

Today’s dip is guacamole. But not just any guacamole. This is PUMPED UP GUAC!! It has black beans, greek yogurt and all sorts of other fun mix-ins! It’s packed with fiber, protein and healthy fats. Doesn’t get any better than that my friends!

I made this recipe last summer (almost exactly a year ago, in fact) and haven’t made it since. Last weekend, I realized I had several ripe avocados and I decided to whip up another batch!
