    I guess if you want to focus on protein instead of (healthy) fats? But both are good choices.

    The biggest issue i have with this is that the name implies that it is infact guacamole but "healthier" or something.

    Not knocking the recipe itself... perhaps "Tangy Broccoli Dip" or "Mexican Brocolli Dip" or something would suit it better.

    Maybe the creator thought it looked like quac so that's why they called it that...not sure...but I just thought it looked great and sounded like a nice alternative...that's all...

    While I am a huge guacamole fan, I am strangely intrigued by this....
    I almost want to try this as a paste to stuff chicken breasts with.

    i'm going to give this a go, I'm trying to learn to like Avocado but it is a slow process, however I love broccoli! And agree that it would be yum as a chicken breast stuffing.

    I'm trying to think of how I could make it work. Probably pulse it until it is still chunky, mix it with some mozzarella, and then cut a pouch into the breast and fill it with it. Ahhh, I want to try this now.

    If you do, report back! That sounds great. I wonder if I could trick the hubster into eating broccoli like that...

    I thought this was going to be a knock off whack-a-mole game.

    I'm also a huge guacamole fan and while I would never use this as a substitute, I'm a little interested. Mostly because I hate chewing broccoli.
