Easy Guacamole

The seductive powers of food can be amazing. 

My best critic (or worst, depending on how you look at it) for this recipe is my ex-husband who had issues with most everything I did, but not my cooking, especially when I made guacamole. 

No matter how boring a party may be (picture a business event or a must attend in-law reunion), spice it up with this easy  recipe of squished avocados, which is sure to be crowd-pleaser. It tastes great and the prep time is minimal, so if you are crunched for time, keep it simple and bring this bucket of grub.

The key to the ingredients used in this recipe is the use of mayonnaise in lieu of sour cream. 


3 ripe avocados – peeled, pitted and mashed

2 tablespoon mayonnaise  (if you want to cut some calories and fat, go for the low fat mayo)

1/2 cup of minced onion (red or yellow onion will work)

2 teaspoons salsa- mild, medium or hot (you decide)

1/4 teaspoon lemon juice

1 dash ground black pepper

1 dash garlic salt

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 teaspoon onion powder

1/2 teaspoon ground dill weed

Serving a bigger crowd?  Double your ingredients. 

In a small bowl, mix together all ingredients, blending to consistency desired for dipping chips or veggies.  However, guacamole can be used as more than just a dip.  It is wonderful when spread on top of your favorite quesadilla or smothered on your burrito.  It is also a great substitute for sour cream and butter when topped on a baked potato;  bacon lovers, don’t fret,  mix it into that guacamole.  You will find that  it tastes divine on that spud.

Cover and chill in the refrigerator for at least one hour before serving.
