{Refreshed} Black Bean Guacamole

Hi Friends!

Just popping in a with a quick recipe to share with you guys. Yes, I realize it’s green and the appropriate day to post a green recipe would have been yesterday, or even last week before St. Patrick’s Day….but you guys know me- always behind!

So, recently I spent some time going back through all my posts from my first year of blogging. Considering I’ve been doing this for almost 4 years…it’s safe to say there are some recipe buried in the archives that many of you have never seen. I picked out some of my favorites and over the next few months, I’ve tasked myself with remaking them, taking better pictures and highlighting them for you guys!

This is the first one- you can see the original post here!

Black Bean Guacamole

Add some extra protein and fiber to your guacamole thanks to the addition of Greek yogurt and black beans! Serve it as an appetizer and your guests won't know the difference!

This is basically your average guacamole, just taken to a new level. I added black beans (which you can’t even taste) for protein and fiber and also mixed in some Greek yogurt for a protein boost!

Here’s how you make it:

{Refreshed} Black Bean Guacamole

  30. How many servings does this recipe make? I need to make a substantial amount as an appetizer for 20 cheerleaders. They’re going to go crazy… Lookin forward to it!

  31. Hi Lindsay,

    Love guacamole! I noticed you sometimes make it as part of your Sunday prep. Just wondering how you keep it fresh? How long will it last in the fridge. My needs to be ate immediately or the texture seems weird or it gets all brown. Would love your tips!

    • Put it in a container where there’s not a lot of extra space at the top for air, cover with a layer of plastic wrap in the container and press that down so it’s touching the guac and then put the lid on an airtight container. That should help!
