guacamoleIn my experience you can never go wrong with guacamole which is why this has become my go-to party recipe.  The cayenne pepper, paprika and cilantro create a subtle kick which will wake up your taste buds and keep your guests coming back for more.  Not only is this great with tortilla chips, but it also make a great alternative to dip veggies or spread on crackers. Depending on how to plan to serve the dip, you can keep the avocados chunky or mash until smooth.

Prep time: 10 mins
Total time: 1 hour 10 mins

2 medium avocados, peeled and pitted
1 lime, juiced
1/2 sweet onion, diced
1 medium tomato, diced
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp sea salt
2 Tbsp chopped cilantro

  • Place the avocado, tomato and onion in a medium bowl.
  • Add half the lime juice and sprinkle with cayenne, paprika and sea salt.
  • Mash all the ingredients together to reach the consistency you prefer- this can be done with a fork, potato masher or even your hands.
  • Stir in the cilantro and remaining lime juice.
  • Add pepper to taste

This can be served immediately, but for best results place in the refrigerator for one hour allowing all the flavors to truly blend.  Stir before serving.
