Get ready to rethink guac. This twist on the classic recipe turns delicious guacamole into a high-protein snack. But it doesn’t stop there. Shove it into a pita, make it your main sandwich filling— this dip has it all. It’s not only packed with the good fat found in avocado, but the bean protein practically makes it a meal!
White beans are a powerhouse of health benefits. They pack in 17 grams of protein per cup and provide more than 80% of your daily iron needs. White beans are also a great source of antioxidants, detoxifiers, and other healthy nutrients that help your body regulate fat storage and stress.
Another great part of this recipe is how easy it is make in a stasher bag. No muss, no fuss. Plus, making it this way is almost therapeutic, like popping wrapping bubbles or one of those stress balls. Except it is plastic free, which is much better for our planet. 20 million plastic sandwich bags end up in our landfills every day.
Because these bags are made from pure, non-toxic silicone, both making and storing your guac in a stasher bag is a no brainer. Let’s get to it.
1 cup cooked white beans
1/4 cup pico de gallo
1/2 teaspoon lime juice
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
Add the cooked white beans to a medium-sized stasher bag. Seal the bag and carefully smash the beans. I find laying flat on the counter, pressing the seal with the palm of one hand while smooshing the beans works best.
Halve both avocados lengthwise and pit them. Scoop out the fruit and add it to the bag. Repeat the smooshing process.
Add all remaining ingredients to the bag, seal and mix. Another great thing about storing the guac in this reusable bag is that you can press out all of the air before sealing to prevent the guac from browning.
This dip is great shared with friends or for your next Netflix and chill.
