"Though it's as creamy and tasty as restaurant guacamole, no one will ever guess there are canned white beans here which not only lightens up on calories but provides that certain "je ne sais quoi" of added yumminess."

What a lovely guacamole. I didn't have white beans, so used chickpeas (garbanzos). I used Tabasco as the hot sauce and a extra cumin, which I love some much. Nice touch to soak the onion in the lime juice. I thought it needed the full amount of salt, but that's a personal preference. Thanks for posting.
