Avocado dip

When it comes to guacamole, or any avocado-based dip for that matter, it’s important to consider individual tastes as well as regional preferences. For example, some families wouldn’t show up at a party without adding mayonnaise or sour cream to their avocado dip. I’m not a fan of mayo in my guac, so this batch was not one of my personal favorites. However, many people love this style of dip (and adding mayo makes it go further), so I’m including a popular recipe from a book of recipes from home economists and La Victoria called California’s Favorite Mexican Foods.

2 avocados
1 Tbsp. green onions (chopped)
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
1/4 tsp. chili powder
dash of Tabasco sauce
dash of salt
1/3 cup mayonnaise

Mash avocado and mix together all but the mayonnaise. Spread mayo on top, refrigerate and mix in the mayo before serving.

Green onion guacamole

Green onion guacamole

I whipped up this guacamole (my own recipe) for a family party, and the green onions added just the right amount of crunch. Include as much or as little garlic as you like, depending on your family’s tastes.

2 large avocados
2 green onions, sliced and diced
2 Roma tomatoes
juice of half a lemon
1 clove garlic
salt to taste

Mash avocado. Prepare green onion and tomatoes and stir into avocados. Add lemon, garlic and salt.
