Crowd pleasing guacamole dip
that’s easy to make
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.
