In 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

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.

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.
