Nothing epitomizes summer more than guac + chips to me. OK, maybe add a beer to that scenario too. I swear you wouldn't know it in the Northeast right now, but summer will be here before we know it, and along with it, the dreaded bikini season.

These three guacamole recipes take the health factor up a notch by adding a green vegetable to each one. Pick your veg (broccoli, peas or edamame), and get to dipping in just five minutes. Preparing for bathing suit season never tasted so good!
