Dip Creations

Last week I received some goodies in the mail. Thanks to the Tastemaker program from Foodbuzz, I received some samples of Tostito's new product called Dip Creations. In the package is three flavors, two of each.

2 Freshly Made Guacamole
2 Country Ranch
2 Garden Onion

Dips are fun. Great for parties or just by yourself as an afternoon snack like I did. As it just so happens, I had exactly 3 avocados waiting in my fridge, so it was perfect timing that I get to use one of the guacamole packets.

I like my guacamole in a mix of smooth and with chunky bits. So half of the avocados I blended in the food processor and the other half I did a rough mash. Added in the seasoning. I also like fresh tomato and onion in my guacamole to I chopped some up as well. 

Since i didn't have any cilantro or peppers the seasoning mix covered that. It had a nice tang and a hint of spice to give the guacamole a nice tiny kick. It's an easy way to jazz up an old chip favorite.

Easy Peasy Guacamole

2 medium to large ripe avocados
2 small tomato
1/2 medium sweet onion
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 packet Tostito's Dip Creations Seasoning Mix (Freshly Made Guacamole)

Scoop the avocado from its skins and throw out the seed. Mash (or blend in food processor) the avocados. Add in the lemon juice and Tostito's Dip Creation guacamole seasoning and mix well to combine.

Dice the tomato, remove the seeds. Then fine chop the onion. Add both into the avocado mix and fold the mixture until all is mixed.

Serve chilled with tortilla chips of bread.
