One of my favorite snacks is chips and dip. And the dip of all dips…..Guacamole! Here is a pretty basic and delicious recipe for Guacamole that will be a hit every time. Try this dip with Food Should Taste Good, Jalapeno flavored tortilla chips to add an extra kick!

Guacamole Dip:


2 ripe Hass avocados (ripe = should give slightly at the ends when pressed with fingers)

1 small shallot, finely chopped (or 1/2 red onion chopped)

Dash of garlic powder (or to taste)

1 tbsp olive oil (optional, but adds a velvety richness to the dip)

Dash of your favorite hot sauce Delicious, healthy snack to enjoy anytime!

2 Tbsp fresh chopped cilantro (or a pinch  of dried if fresh not available)

Juice from one small lime

1 tbsp Kosher salt

2 plum tomatoes chopped

fresh ground pepper to taste


Cut the avocados in half, remove the pit carefully, then spoon out the flesh and put into a medium-sized mixing bowl (or if you want to be fancy a mortar and pestle).  Mash the avocados slightly (will still be pretty chunky). Add the remainder of the ingredients and mix until well blended.

Alternatively: Leave the tomatoes out of the mix and use as a garnish

Feel free to leave the dip chunky if you like, just make sure all the ingredients are well blended so that each bite is the perfect bite!

Pair with your favorite dipping vessel (chips, veggies, etc.) and enjoy! Recipe serves 1, 2, up to 4–depending on how hungry you are and how much will power you have.
