How is everyone? I am so excited because of this heat wave we are having in the
Midwest. It is actually suppose to be hotter than I thought, but it is going to
make a great weekend. I am also excited about this weekend because its Memorial
Day weekend which means good food. I am hoping to bring out the grill to do
problem I always have is coming up with sides. I don’t know why, but I can
never think of anything and I always like to try something different besides
potato salad. One thing that I really love is dips. I love chips and love
dipping my chips in the dip.
one dip is so simple and amazing, and you guys are going to love it. Guacamole!
This couldn’t be simpler. You pretty much throw everything into a bowl and mix.
One thing that I tried this time was soaking my red onion in the lime and lemon
juice. I saw this on Rachael Ray, of course lol, and thought the flavors of the
guacamole were amazing. I added two small chipotle in adobo to the mix to make
a smoke guacamole. This is optional you don’t have to do that if you don’t want
to. The guacamole tastes great also without it. I hope you guys try this this weekend and
how you do it.
small red onion, finely chopped
of 1 lemon
of 1 lime
jalapeno, seeded and chopped
small chipotle in adobo from the can , finally chopped. (this is optional, do
not through in the while can!)
cloves of garlic, finely chopped
chop your onion and put in a small bowl, add the juice of the lemon and lime
and salt. Let sit for ten minutes.
your chopped avocado, cilantro and garlic in another bowl.
the onion has been sitting in the juice for ten minutes add to your avocado
mixture, mix and enjoy!
help your guacamole from browning fast, cover with plastic wrap and put it
directly on the guacamole. The juice from the lemon and lime will also help,
but I find that keeping the plastic wrap on top helps too.
