2-oz guacamole

Caesar Dressing 
½ cup yogurt 
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice 
1 tbsp Dijon mustard 
1½ tsp Worcestershire sauce 
garlic powder

  2. Make dressing by whisking all ingredients together until well combined, adding garlic powder to taste. 
  3. Chill until using.

  5. Place on parchment-lined baking sheet, and bake 20-25 minutes, until crispy but not hard.
