Make this the night before for a great dip to serve at the game, and as a spread on burgers and hot dogs, like our Award Winning Sanchize Dog!
- 3 Haas avocados, halved, seeded and peeled
- Juice from 1 lime
- 1/2 teaspoon course salt
- 1/2 teaspoon cumin
- 1/2 teaspoon cayenne
- 1/2 medium onion, diced, red onion perferred
- 2 roma or plum tomatoes seeded and diced
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
- 1 clove garlic, minced fine
When buying avocados, look for Haas, they are the ones that are bumpy. To gauge ripeness squeeze it, there should be a little give. If it is rock hard is not ripe yet. Most supermarkets sell their avocados unripened, while some also offer avocados ripe and ready to be eaten. If you get an unripened avocado, just let it sit on the counter for a few days. To speed up the process toss a few of them into a brown paper bag. To even further increase the sped, toss in an apple or banana with the avocados into the bag. FYI, unripened avocados will NEVER ripen in the fridge!!
Halve, seed, and peel the avocado
Seed and dice the tomato
- Place scooped avocado into a large bowl with lime juice and toss the halves to coat
- Using a fork or potato masher, begin to break up the avocado, while adding the salt, cumin, and cayenne.
- Continue mashing until a nice chunky texture is reached
- Fold in the remaining ingredients, being careful not to puree the avocado
- Let sit for 30 minutes to an hour at room temperature.
You can add diced up crumbled crispy bacon, fine diced jalapenos, fine diced green onions, and/or crumbled cotija cheese to kick it up.
