Its all in the GUAC

BEST BUD's GUACAMOLE

- Two avocados
- a quarter of a red onion chopped fine
- a tomato chopped until its basically mush
- one Serrano pepper chopped super super fine
- a handful of fresh cilantro chopped super fine
- one lime's worth of squeezed lime juice

I like chopping everything up superfine because the tastes seem to gel together more, and it gives the guac a more uniform texture.



Question: My wife tells me that if you leave the "bulbs" of the avocados in, that it slows the guacamole in turning brown. True? False?

False!
Leaving the seed in the avocado dip will not stop it from turning brown..The only way I do that is to keep all air out of the mixed dip..Cover with a plastic wrap.

I love this dip because not only does it taste good, but it consists of ingredients that I typically have in the cupboard or refrigerator. Sometimes, I also add a jalapeno pepper, finely diced to the recipe.

Mexican Black Bean Dip

1-15.5 oz. can black beans
1/3 cup salsa
cup cilantro leaves
4 teaspoons lemon or lime juice
1 garlic clove, minced
Tortilla chips

Drain and rinse black beans. Combine beans, cilantro, lemon juice, and garlic in food processor. Blend until smooth. Garnish with leaflets of cilantro. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve. Serve with tortilla chips.

My family loves this one...

1 carton sour cream mixed with taco seasoning powder (taco dip)
1 good guacamole dip bought from the supermarket

Place the taco dip on a plate and cover with the guacamole dip
Cover the dips with cubed tomatoes
Then cover everything with chopped green stalks from shallots

Great with doritos or plain corn chips or sakata rice crackers.
