It's a mix, like SS said. You add it to mashed avocado to make the dip. I add a chopped tomato, too

just to be a pita, an avocado isn't a veggie. it's a fruit.

Botanically speaking, most things we call vegetables are really fruits. Tomatoes, zucchini, cucumbers. etc.

Anything with seeds/pits are fruits? Am I right? thats why I was thinking potato and it was sounding great!! I was thinking it may have been one of those mashed tater add ins. Do they even still have those in the produce isle any more? I haven't seen them in awhile but I really haven't been looking for them. they had bacon and cheddar and sour cream and chive versions that were great. Sorry to hijack the thread.

yep, they still have tater toppings. dw buys a bacon and herb one that's tasty.

and yes, a food that is part of the seed from a plant is technically a fruit. but it's not an absolute thing. heck, bananas are fruit, but are from an herb plant.

ok, back to ss's "name that food".

Yes, if you know the stuff and love it (I do too), it is pretty easy to figure out. But I find a lot of people don't know it exists!

I am looking forward to your list of ingredients!
