    Guiltless Guacamole

    Ingredients
    1 can (15 to 19 ounces) white kidney beans (cannellini), drained and rinsed
    1 tablespoon (or to taste) lime juice
    1 jalapeño chile, seeded
    1/2 cup loosely packed fresh cilantro leaves
    1/4 cup coarsely chopped sweet onion (such as Vidalia or Maui)
    Salt
    1 ripe avocado, halved and pitted
    2 plum tomatoes
    Baked tortilla chips or fresh-cut vegetables

    Directions
    In food processor with knife blade attached, puree beans and 1 tablespoon lime juice until smooth. Transfer to medium bowl.

    In same processor, place jalapeño, cilantro, onion, and 1/2 teaspoon salt; pulse until juicy and thick.

    With spoon, scoop avocado from peel into bowl with beans; mash with fork until mixture is blended, with some chunks remaining.

    Cut each tomato crosswise in half. Squeeze halves to remove seeds and juice. Coarsely chop tomatoes. Stir tomato-and-onion mixture into avocado mixture until blended. If you prefer a little more zip, stir in additional lime juice to taste.

    Guacamole is best served as soon as it's made, but you can also cover and refrigerate up to 1 hour. Serve with chips or vegetables.
