    2      small         tomatillos -- skinned, rinsed &
                         quartered
    1      clove         garlic
      1/4  cup           canned diced green chilies (I used Ortega)
    3      sprigs        cilantro

                         cut in several pieces
    3      tablespoons   fat-free sour cream

 lime juice.    Stir in onions and tomatoes by hand.
 
 From the cookbook: “This is a chunky-style guacamole that extends one
 avocado and helps reduce fat and calories.  Light sour cream, non-fat sour
 cream, and fat-free cream cheese all work well in this recipe.   If you
 don't mind a few extra calories, use two avocados and add a little fresh
 lemon juice.   The tomatillos help keep the color fresh.”
 
 Lou’s note:   This is NOT guacamole, but it tastes pretty good.    My
 tennis team thought it needed some hot sauce to pep it up.    I served it
 at a leauge match and was reluctant to “hot” it up too much because of
 differing preferences.   I would have liked it hotter myself.
