How Do You Enter?
Visit Avocados from Mexico on Facebook between Jan. 5th – Jan. 15th. You’ll be able to enter your favorite iPad winning guacamole dip.
I’ve already entered my recipe. Here’s a screen shot. It’s super easy to do. I figure, it’s a win win situation. Even if I don’t win a prize, I can still eat my guacamole dip. I win either way!
For those of you who are curious about my recipe, here it is. It’s pretty simple!
The first step is choosing the right avocados. For a creamier dip, choose avocados that are more ripe. For chunkier guacamole, chose avocados that are a bit more firm.
Dice the avocados, tomatoes, jalapeno pepper and half of the white onion. (If you like it spicy, leave the seeds in the jalapeno pepper. I recommend taking them out before dicing.)
Add avocados, tomatoes, jalapeno pepper and onion into a large bowl. Stir around until evenly mixed.
NOTE: The more you mix, the creamier your dip becomes.
Add a teaspoon of Onion powder, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, some pepper and a 1/4 teaspoon of cumin.
Mix seasoning in.
Our favorite chips to use are the Mission long tortilla chips.
