Guacomole is everyone's summertime favorite snack! Count on Kale and Chocolate's Elise Museles to make it even more colorful and super nutritious-guac-kale-mole with a twist!

Guac-Kale-Mole brings guacamole to a whole new level in taste and nutrition! How can you go wrong when you mix kale with avocado? The key is to soften the kale and massage it first with a drop of olive oil so that it blends well with the creamy avocado. Make the guacamole by hand, and then process the kale and blend it into the avocado mixture. This is likely to become your new superfood snack.

*Serves 6

INGREDIENTS

2-3 avocados
1 lime, juiced
¼ cup red onion, chopped
½ clove garlic, chopped
½ -1 jalapeño pepper, chopped
2 tablespoons cilantro
¼ teaspoon cumin
Sea salt to taste
4-5 large kale leaves, stalks removed

METHOD

Mix and mash ingredients together (except kale) in a bowl to desired consistency. Massage kale (stalks removed) with a drop of olive oil to soften, then process in a high-speed blender or food processor. Once smooth, add the kale to the guacamole.

Serve traditional-style with chips, or for a healthier option, slice up crunchy vegetables like jicama, carrots and red pepper. Dig in!
