guac spread

Get started!

Dish up some avocado-and-lime juice mash.

Heat it up!

Stir in a little seasoning, such as cayenne, ground cumin, minced garlic and chopped chiles.

Sweeten the mix!

Add chopped tomatoes, tomatillos, onions and bell peppers, plus corn kernels and beans.

Cool it!

Calm everything down with dairy: cubed jack cheese and swirls of sour cream or plain yogurt.

Taste it!

Sample your mix to see if it needs a little salt or pepper; garnish with chopped fresh herbs, such as cilantro.

Dig in!

Pick up a handy envelope filled with tortilla chips and other dippers, take it all to your seat and enjoy!
