This guacamole by Chef Jeff Rossman, whose Terra Restaurant is in the heart of California Avocado country (San Diego, CA), is a great tasting guacamole with a little kick from chili powder and poblano chile. You will enjoy this guacamole all the more knowing it is low sodium (less than 140 mg), only 150 calories, an excellent source of Vitamin C (15% DV) and 484 mg of potassium. The Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend consuming a diet that's rich in potassium, which blunts the effect of salt on blood pressure and may also reduce the risk of developing kidney stones and possibly bone loss as we get older.
