Guaca, Guaca, Guacamole!

I Love Dips! 

I don't think I've met a dip that I didn't like ... unless it has a lot of cilantro. I've never been able to learn to like cilantro. Oh well. Life goes on!

Guacamole Dip
So while we're on vacation, yay!, we are planning on having fresh veggies with a guacamole dip. I am trying a new recipe for this one from Alton Brown of The Food Network. I may have accidentally added a bit too much lime juice to my version, but it still turned out great. I added a little bit of apple cider vinegar to make it a bit sweeter too. So there's that option too. This is a great recipe though because it has the deliciousness of traditional guacamole, I made ours nice and chunky, and it just looks pretty!

Here you go:


  • 3 Haas avocados, halved, seeded and peeled 
  • 1 lime, juiced 
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt 
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin 
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne 
  • 1/2 medium onion, diced 
  • 1/2 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced 
  • 2 Roma tomatoes, seeded and diced 
  • 1 tablespoon chopped cilantro 
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • splash of apple cider vinegar (optional)


1. In a large bowl place the scooped avocado pulp and lime juice, toss to coat. 
2. Drain, and reserve the lime juice, after all of the avocados have been coated.
3. Using a potato masher add the salt, cumin, and cayenne and mash. 
4. Then, fold in the onions, jalapeno, tomatoes, cilantro, and garlic. 
5. Add 1 tablespoon of the reserved lime juice. 
6. Add splash of apple cider vinegar (optional) and mix thoroughly. 
Let sit at room temperature for 1 hour and then serve.
