Guacamole Dip

Crowd pleasing guacamole dip

that’s easy to make

 

by Mina Frannea

Here’s a great recipe for guacamole dip that’s perfect for your Cinco de Mayo menu. It’s definitely a crowd pleaser and I get requests for recipes when I serve it.

This recipe yields about 2 1/2 cups

What you need:

8-10 medium, ripe* avocados mashed with a fork or potato masher
juice of 1/2 a large lemon
2 – 3 tablespoons of Mrs. Renfro’s green salsa or other mild/hot green salsa (Mrs. Renfro’s is the best!)
2 – 3 large cloves of garlic finely minced
1  1/2  – 2 teaspoons of red onion minced
1 medium vine ripe tomato diced into petite squares
dash of kosher salt (about  ¼  teaspoon)
dash of freshly ground black pepper (about ¼ teaspoon)

Mash avocados in a big bowl, add the rest of the ingredients and stir.  Serve with your choice of chips or add as a condiment to dinner.

Try adding multi-grain corn chips or blue corn chips for a fun twist! For friends who are avoiding carbs or gluten, you can use thinly sliced jicama as “chips.”

*A perfectly ripe avocado is one that is soft enough that you can squeeze it, but not overly soft (caves in when you squeeze) which means that it’s gone bad.
