Thread: avocado dips

  1. #1

    avocado dips

    After tooling around on the internet, I concocted this pathetically tasty avocado dip:

    Mash one avocado, leaving some small chunks
    Remove seeds and pulp from large tomato, dice it and blend into avocado
    Blend in about 1 tablespoon sour cream
    Squeeze in few drops of fresh lime
    Serves 2 !

    Great with veggies like celery sticks, or crackers, etc. One of the recipes on-line included salsa from a jar, no dicing tomatoes.
    I made this out of desperation as store bought avocado dips were kinda blah.

    The only thing I would add is something spicy. A few drops of Tabasco or a few tablespoons of your favorite salsa would give you something a lot less bland.

    Here is a dip I make that is not just avocado, but very popular when I serve it with either veggies or Fritos:
    1 jar Trader Joe's Spicy Black Bean dip
    1 small container Trader Joe's spicy fresh salsa
    1 cup shredded cheese (I use the TJ's Mexican Shredded cheese)
    1 large (or 2 small) avocados, lightly mashed
    Mix everything together at least 1 hour before serving (so flavors blend a bit). Cover and chill. Serve with veggies or corn chips.

    The proxy server I have to use since my IP was "banned" messes up my post spacing.Basic Texas Guacamole: 3 ripe avocados mashed chunky with a fork. 1/2 white onion (finely diced ). 1 jalapeno pepper ( remove ribs and seeds ) dice finely. Use less if you don't like too much heat. A few drops of lime juice and a pinch of salt to taste. Serve with tortilla chips and ice cold Cerveza.

    My IP is still banned. The proxy I'm using doesn't allow emoticons or quotations.

    My guacamole is the same as 2drwhofans Basic Texas Guacamole recipe (above) - "Basic Texas Guacamole: 3 ripe avocados mashed chunky with a fork. 1/2 white onion (finely diced ). 1 jalapeno pepper ( remove ribs and seeds ) dice finely. Use less if you don't like too much heat. A few drops of lime juice and a pinch of salt to taste. Serve with tortilla chips and ice cold Cerveza."

    ...except I add some hot red pepper sauce, finely diced garlic, chopped cilantro, and some chopped fresh tomato. To those who aren't familiar with 'cilantro',...it looks like parsley, but has a delightful flavor that you will never want to be without once you try it. I also put a LOT of lime juice or lemon juice. Oh, this is making me so hungry that I can hardly stand it, and I don't have any avocados right now. A dish of sour cream is good to have nearby.
