Guac-kale-mole!

Happy Meatless Monday everyone!  This week I have a fabulous twist on traditional guacamole.  Adding some kale and a few other ingredients takes your guac to the next level and you get all the wonderful benefits of kale without having to chomp on the leaves 🙂 Guac-kale-mole ~ www.thehappyhealthfreak.com #vegan #kale #guacamole
